(SOUNDBITE) (English) TECHNICAL DIRECTOR OF INSTITUTE OF CHEMISTRY OF UNIVERSITY OF TARTU, RAIT KANARBIK, SAYING:
"Filling this vehicle takes only two minutes, I measured it. That means after two minutes of refilling, it can drive six to seven hours. That means, you don't have to have so many vehicles on a line to operate, you can quickly refuel the vehicle and still be 100% green, especially when you're using green hydrogen."
