During the visit NanoSUN’s CEO, Dean O’Connor, spoke about the company’s commitment to local job creation, employee development and reducing the impact of harmful CO2 emissions through the launch of its Pioneer Mobile Hydrogen Refuelling Station.
Cat Smith said: “It’s been really inspirational watching the development of NanoSUN from its early beginnings just a few years ago to its emergence as an industry leader today. I’m delighted the company continues to grow and thrive here in Lancaster.
“NanoSUN is at the forefront of enabling us to transition to hydrogen vehicles. The company is also an example of why we need to attract and retain more of these new, green and forward-thinking businesses, to ensure we adapt and prepare to become a city of the future whilst still proudly celebrating our past.”
The NanoSUN team also welcomed councillors, including Phil Durnell, LCC director of highways and transport.
He said: “It was really good to see a British company leading the way across the world in the transportation and storage of Hydrogen. The meeting gave the authority confidence that a realistic option to pure electric vehicles is possible.”
Dean O’Connor said: “It was great to receive such a positive interest in NanoSUN and our Pioneer solution from those who can truly support us in influencing real change; both as a developing company and as a means to encouraging green alternatives within Lancaster and the UK.”
