Due to be one of the first to receive the new hydrogen trucks in New Zealand come September, Golden Bay Cement will have two Hyzon-600HP 58 tonne hydrogen-powered trucks.
It’s another step towards lowering our carbon footprint across the business having leased the trucks from TR Group.
The Hydrogen fuel cells combine hydrogen (stored on-board the vehicle) and oxygen (from the atmosphere) to generate electricity that powers the vehicle. They only emission is water vapor. This will prevent approximately around a ton of CO2 emitted on a daily use.
Our green trucks will have an expected range of 550-600kms depending on weight and terrain.
Gian Raffainer, GM Cement Industrial explains, “There’s a total of 20 Hyzon trucks being brought to New Zealand by TR Group and for us to obtain 2, it’s a total privilege” “These trucks will demonstrate how hydrogen can be a reliable and how achievable is to reduced payload compared with a diesel truck”.
Initially Golden Bay Cement will be trialing these trucks in the Auckland area and will assess further expansion as infrastructure for fueling stations continues to grow.
