[Overview of support in Thailand]
Our support for Toyota in Thailand includes the following:

1) Hydrogen supply to FC trucks in demonstrative experiments in logistics
As part of its commitment to CN in Thailand, Toyota is conducting demonstrative experiments to improve logistics efficiency under the three themes of "data," "mobility," and "energy.” Toyota has been experimenting with various forms of mobility under its "multi-pathway" concept; TNSC provides hydrogen for FC trucks and supports the experiments in collaboration with Nippon Sanso (Thailand) Co., Ltd., a member of the Nippon Sanso Holdings Group.
We supply hydrogen directly to FC trucks through our self-developed "Hydro Shuttle," a package-type hydrogen refueling station that can fill and supply hydrogen. The Hydro Shuttle is a mobile hydrogen station. By integrating the four main components of a hydrogen station (dispenser, pre-cool heat exchanger, hydrogen gas booster, and C-FRP vessel) into a single unit, we simplified the structure of each component.

2) Hydrogen supply to a hydrogen-powered vehicle in a 10-hour endurance race
The IDEMITSU SUPER ENDURANCE SOUTHEAST ASIA TROPHY 2023 (a 10-hour endurance race) was held in Buriram, Thailand, on December 22-23, 2023, in which a Toyota's hydrogen-powered Corolla "ORC ROOKIE GR Corolla H2 concept" running on hydrogen gas was entered. With the cooperation of Nippon Sanso (Thailand) Co., Ltd, we supplied hydrogen to the vehicle and supported it until it completed the race.
