Pure Hydrogen Corporation and US-based Hyzon Motors have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop a network of hydrogen refuelling stations for Australia.
The companies are set to work together to provide hydrogen solutions locally, such as the provision of Hyzon Motor’s hydrogen powered commercial vehicles and building a network of refuelling stations for hydrogen in Australia.
“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 Pure Hydrogen Managing Director, Scott Brown, adding that the company also has several other hydrogen-based initiatives underway.
The Australian Government is advancing various hydrogen projects through its National Hydrogen Strategy which aims to promote hydrogen as a mainstream technology by 2030.
“We see Australia as a key market for the integration of hydrogen power technology into hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy transportation,” said John Feenan, Australia Director of Hyzon Motors, which formed in 2020 within parent company Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies.
The business strategy of Hyzon Motors is to assist heavy vehicle operators transition to cost effective, zero emission hydrogen fuelled vehicles without any compromise on performance.
“The 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-emissions future,” he said.
