Network of hydrogen refuelling stations planned for Australia
Pure Hydrogen Corporation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hyzon Motors to develop a network of hydrogen refuelling points across Australia.
The MoU will serve as a framework for how the two companies will collaborate to provide hydrogen solutions to end-users, primarily fleet customers.
“This MoU with such an established and respected hydrogen fuel cell vehicle company like Hyzon is an outstanding development and excellent validation of our plans to develop a hydrogen focused energy business in Australia,” said Scott Brown, Pure Hydrogen Managing Director.
The companies will also investigate a ‘wet hire’ arrangement, that will secure Hyzon’s vehicles as part of a monthly payment package that includes the vehicle’s cost, scheduled services, and hydrogen fuel.
“We see Australia as a key market for the integration of hydrogen power technology into hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy transportation,” stated John Feenan, Hyzon Motors Australia Director.
“This MoU with Pure Hydrogen paves the way for both parties to boost the hydrogen infrastructure capabilities of Australia and propel the nation’s fleet operators towards a zero-emission future.”
Hyzon Motors was established in the United States as a new business by parent company Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, a global supplier of zero-emission hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles.
The company has already secured contracts in Australia, such as the partnership with Fortescue Metals Group to develop a fleet of hydrogen fuel cell buses for their Christmas Creek iron ore mine.
