ULEMCo, the UK hydrogen fuel pioneer, has signed an exclusive MoU with ENGV Pty Ltd to collaborate on developing a market for its hydrogen dual-fuel technology. The scope of the agreement extends across Australia and into commercial vehicles, particularly heavy-duty applications like refuse collection, urban trucks, buses and prime movers.
New partnership will propel early development for hydrogen fuelled vehicles in Australia
In the effort to transition to decarbonised transport, HGVs are some of the biggest contributors to CO2 emissions, and yet at present there are very few realistic clean fuel alternatives available. By using zero-carbon hydrogen to displace diesel directly in the engine, ULEMCo’s dual fuel technology H2ICED® enables vehicle owners to reduce their carbon emissions by up to 40%, as well as offering a practical solution that is immediately available. Additionally, by providing a low risk option for fleetwide conversion, it can provide demand for investment in hydrogen refuelling infrastructure that can accelerate the overall take up of hydrogen technologies globally.
ENGV developed and now operates Australia’s first public hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) in Canberra with plans to support the growth of industry by the deployment of best-in-class HRS solutions for both public and depot-based refuelling.
