In News1 MinutesBy Gavin MyersApril 7, 2022

Hyzon Motors is welcoming the announcement by the New South Wales, Victorian and Queensland governments of a tri-state collaboration commitment on a renewable hydrogen refuelling network for heavy transport and logistics along Australia’s eastern seaboard.

The governments of NSW, Victoria and Queensland signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the hydrogen refuelling corridors, starting with the Hume Highway, the Pacific Highway, and the Newell Highway.

The refuelling network will start with AU$20 million support from the NSW and Victorian governments to build at least four renewable hydrogen refuelling stations between Sydney and Melbourne. The funding will also provide grants for the country’s first long-haul hydrogen trucks.

Hyzon, a global supplier of zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cell powered commercial vehicles, announced early this year, the development of Australia’s first purpose-built assembly plant in Melbourne to manufacture hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles with future capacity to produce over 1000 vehicles per annum in turn generating over a 100 Australian jobs.
