Golden Bay Cement leases hydrogen-powered cement trucks

Published by , Deputy Editor
World Cement,

Golden Bay Cement is to obtain two Hyzon-600HP 58 t hydrogen-powered trucks in September.

This marks a step towards the company lowering its carbon footprint, 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. The vehicle only emits water vapour. This will prevent around a ton of CO2 emitted with daily use.

The green trucks will have an expected range of 550 – 600 km 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 reliable and how achievable is to reduce payload compared with a diesel truck”.

Initially Golden Bay Cement will be trialling these trucks in the Auckland area and will assess further expansion as infrastructure for fuelling stations continues to grow.
