Ark Energy locks in Hyzon Motors for five ultra-heavy hydrogen fuel cells trucks
The first in the world to use Hyzon’s ultra-heavy-duty fuel cell vehicles
Further to the Heads of Agreement in July, Ark Energy has now signed a Vehicle Supply Agreement with Hyzon Motors for the supply of five 140 (metric) tonne rated hydrogen fuel cell trucks to be delivered to our SunHQ H2 hub in Townsville by the end of 2022. These zero-emission trucks are expected to be the first in the world to use Hyzon’s ultra-heavy-duty fuel cell technology and bring forward the decarbonisation of Australia’s ultra-heavy transport sector by several years.
Under the order, Hyzon is obligated to deliver the zero-emission vehicles to Ark Energy by the end of 2022. Ark Energy will lease the trucks to its sister company, Townsville Logistics, which will deploy them in triple (three-trailer) road train configurations as part of their short-haul fleet operating on a 30-kilometer loop from the Port of Townsville to the Sun Metals zinc refinery owned by the group. The fuel cell trucks, replacing their diesel equivalents, are expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by over 1,400 tons per year.
