Australia’s Pure Hydrogen Corporation on May 26 confirmed that its subsidiary H2X Global has been awarded a 240mn Swedish krona ($22mn) contract by Renova for hydrogen fuel cell trucks for the city of Gothenburg, Sweden.
Pure Hydrogen, as the largest shareholder in H2X Global with a 20.3% shareholding, will continue to collaborate with H2X on tendering opportunities, particularly in the Australian waste management sector, the company said.
The contract with Renova AB allows H2X Global to supply up to 37 hydrogen fuel cell-powered trucks in various configurations over the 2023 and 2024 calendar years. These trucks, including tail lift dumpers, garbage compactors, hook lifts, and crane loaders, offer zero emissions while providing a similar range and load capacity as traditional fossil-fueled vehicles.
Pure Hydrogen said it is also engaged with waste collection operator JJ's Waste to introduce the first-ever hydrogen-fuelled garbage truck in the Australian market. The company will supply JJ's Waste with a hydrogen fuel cell side-lift RCV truck, and a trial is scheduled to begin next quarter on the Gold Coast.
Pure Hydrogen is also exploring opportunities for H2X Global's smaller 18-ton garbage trucks, similar to the ones deployed by Renova in Sweden, for use in the Australian market.
