Pure Hydrogen partners for hydrogen waste truck bodies

Hydrogen, gas and mobility business Pure Hydrogen has entered into a preferred supplier agreement with Bucher Municipal Pty Ltd for the supply of waste collection truck bodies for fitting to its hydrogen powered vehicles.

The vehicles are planned for a trial underway with domestic waste collector JJ’s Waste & Recycling of Australia’s first-ever hydrogen fuelled garbage trucks.

Swiss-owned Bucher will supply waste collection truck bodies including the electronic side lifter arm to pick up kerbside garbage bins as well as the bodies’ waste compactors.

The bodies will be integrated with hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (HFCEV) waste collection trucks for supply to customers.

The preferred supplier agreement is for a 60 month period with potential for a one year extension.

Pure Hydrogen has ordered the other components for the trials announced in March.

Pure Hydrogen managing director Scott Brown said: “The market for garbage trucks running on clean, green hydrogen fuel is significant and will help what is a very large industry reduce its emissions and fuel costs.”

Pure Hydrogen will also supply ’emerald’ hydrogen made from waste via its east coast refuelling network.
