Bison is participating in the three-year Alberta Zero-Emissions Truck Electrification Collaboration project. The $15-million project will see the building of two class 8 tractors powered by hydrogen to test the ability of it to fuel the heavy-duty freight transportation sector. Testing begins in 2021 and is set to conclude December 2022.


Bison Transport has been involved with this project from inception. We are integral to the development of the specification of the vehicle to match the operational requirements of a heavy long combination vehicle. Our key role in the project will be the day to day operation of one of the vehicles in the Calgary to Edmonton corridor, providing operational feedback on total vehicle performance over the eighteen months of the test. The goal of the program is to prove the operational viability of hydrogen as a fuel source and the electric drive components.


“At Bison, we are committed to the betterment of our communities, as well as incorporating environmental sustainability into our day-to-day operations. Bison Transport takes pride in supporting emerging vehicle technologies and we look forward to the future of hydrogen as a viable fuel source.”
