Suttons Tankers is continuing its winning streak, landing a contract with Ryse Hydrogen just weeks after signing deals with William Grant and Sons, Grace Overseas and GreenChem.

The exclusive three-year deal sees Suttons transporting bulk hydrogen gas from the North West to the capital for Transport for London.

The hydrogen will be used to fuel TfL's 20-strong fleet of new hydrogen fuelled buses.

Ryse said Suttons’ national network of sites, high service levels and its engineering and technical support were key to the successful tender.

The contract begins at the end of September with a phased transport solution leading to a day and night time operation once the capital’s fleet is fully operational.

Suttons is also providing a maintenance package for the service and testing of the customer’s kit to ensure compliance, safety and efficiency.
