Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motors Corp. signed a deal with German organizations to take part in the European nation’s government-led Clean Energy Partnership on Friday.

Under the agreement, Hyundai Motor Group’s two carmakers will supply hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to the German government’s hydrogen automobile project.

“With the MOU, Hyundai and Kia secured a chance to introduce its technology for hydrogen and fuel cell batteries in Germany, the home of European cars,” the company said in a statement.

This is the second such agreement the automakers have signed with European concerns.

In January, the companies signed on to take part in a similar project in place in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland.
