The future is Hydrogen - Pawson teams up with Market Infra on feasibility project

20th October 2023

Market-leading logistics company Pawson, has engaged expert infrastructure consultancy Market Infra on a hydrogen feasibility project.

Pawson provides a range of services to the logistics sector including transportation, driver training, fleet services etc. Based in Rotherham, Pawson have a range of clients both local and national.

As a leading brand in the sector, they want to not only create a positive legacy in their region, but also to futureproof their business against global changes. This led to them approaching Market Infra on the subject of alternative, clean fuel - namely Hydrogen.

Market Infra, based in Sheffield, have over a decade of experience in the infrastructure sector - helping businesses develop, grow and thrive through their work winning and project management services.

As a business they have been a leading voice in the push towards Net Zero in the South Yorkshire region (as a member of the South Yorkshire Transport Forum), as well as helping turn a number of Hydrogen projects into a reality in the UK and abroad.

The scope of the partnership involves working with Pawson to understand the potential that Hydrogen has for their business operations. It will look at both the business aims and also the realities of their sites, to establish how to proceed with their goal of a greener approach to logistics. Through this they hope to create a realistic feasibility case, as well as assisting on delivery using their market-leading project management and advisory team.

On the partnership, Stephen Pawson (Managing Director) said - “I engaged Market Infra to scope out the feasibility of producing Green Hydrogen on one of our potential sites. As a logistics operator we need to look for alternative solutions on our journey to Net Zero.

Market Infra have worked on similar projects and their experience in this field is precisely what we needed.

Very soon we will be in a position to release further information on our future plans and early steps in the development of Hydrogen for the commercial truck market.”

A key aspect of the work will involve combining what is best for the logistics group’s goals with the realities of Hydrogen power and the location of the site. This is where the depth of knowledge and experience in the Market Infra team is particularly helpful - drawing from multiple projects, both in feasibility and delivery, they will be able to create something that is both exciting and achievable.

Tom Hudson, Managing Director of Market Infra, said - “It's been great to work closely with Pawson on this unique project - the support from Stephen and his team has been fantastic and we have some interesting outputs to share with the wider South Yorkshire Net Zero community.  We deployed our technical team and our Hydrogen / Net Zero modelling tools to provide real insight into Hydrogen Refuelling and Use within the transport and logistics sector”.

The project is currently under development, with initial findings set to be published in the coming months. For more information about Hydrogen, get in touch with the Market Infra team here.
