Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG) shares are trading higher premarket after the company announced a strategic framework agreement with BAE Systems (LON: BA.).
The deal will see Plug Power and BAE Systems collaborate to supply zero-emission powertrains to heavy-duty transit bus OEMs in North America, integrating Plug Power’s ProGen fuel cell engines into BAE Systems’ smart electric drive systems and provide hydrogen and refuelling infrastructure to end-customers use points.
