The right example
The province has for example already started making a number of vehicles and the province’s inspection vessel ‘zero emission’. In the coming years, this will be scaled up and the province will also start working on vehicles that are not yet being supplied as zero emission vehicle. In this way, the province of Groningen wants to be an example for other government institutions and market parties. In addition, subsequent vehicles can probably be converted or replaced more cheaply, because the knowledge has already been acquired with the first vehicles.
In any case, work is already underway on a few ships and the first truck in 2021. The total fleet must emit zero emissions by 2030, at the latest.
