ASX-listed Pure Hydrogen today unveiled its HD49T hydrogen fuel cell prime mover at the Brisbane Truck Show Australia. While not the first HFCEV on the market, the company claims it will be a catalyst for future long-haul trucks on the Australian mainland.
Pure Hydrogen is strategically developing a hydrogen ecosystem in Australia encompassing all aspects of the market from production to end-use so that it can provide customers with energy efficient hydrogen solutions that deliver full cost over the life of the asset Are.
Mobility is one of them. Power generation is another. Production of hydrogen. Third. Pure Hydrogen has already leased this truck from PepsiCo Australia and it will be used in Brisbane as a back-to-base truck that brings products from the factory to the distribution center on a daily basis.
The company believes this will be a springboard to help PepsiCo decarbonize. Pure Hydrogen says it has other customers preparing to launch other projects and is taking orders from new customers.
The Pure Hydrogen Truck is an Australian-designed model developed in collaboration with the company ZEV HDrive and has a top speed of 100 km/h and a range of 500 km on a full tank of hydrogen. This size of truck is ideal for a return to the base transport model. The company has many other models and designs available and suitable for various industries.
The truck will be fueled through the original mobile refueling method of pure hydrogen. Part of Pure Hydrogen’s production methodology includes its proposed Moreton Bay hydrogen hub north of Brisbane, where the company will supply green hydrogen (electrolyzer) and emerald hydrogen (waste to hydrogen through gasification).
