Manufacturing News

Clean energy and mobility company Pure Hydrogen has announced the sale of a further battery electric vehicle for use by the NSW government and its successful entry into the North American market for hydrogen fuel cell electric heavy vehicles.

The company’s majority owned Hdrive International has received a binding purchase order from Bourke, NSW based Wilba Transport for the delivery of a battery electric EV70 mini bus (pictured).

The order was placed on behalf of the NSW government as part of its plan for on-demand transport services in regional NSW, and follows a previous order for two 18-seat battery electric mini busies by north coast business Sapphire Coast Buslines.

The vehicles have a driving range of 300km and a recharging time of 45 minutes.

Hdrive produces a wide range of vehicles including its Taurus hydrogen electric prime mover developed in collaboration with PepsiCo and a hydrogen-powered waste removal truck developed for JJ’s Waste & Recycling.

Along with its Australian order, Pure Hydrogen told investors it had broken into the North American heavy vehicle market with orders for two hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles for North American dealership Nutcher Hydrogen.

Hdrive will supply a 6×4 50T prime mover and a 54 seat coach under a $1.2 million order which will be used by Nutcher Hydrogen as demonstration vehicles.

Pure Hydrogen Managing Director Scott Brown said Hdrive has a growing pipeline of purchase orders and pilot testing programmes underway in line with the company’s strategy of serving the heavy vehicle industry.

Brown said: “Hdrive has established its operations as best in class and ongoing demand for its vehicle technology across different applications – from prime movers to industrial vehicles to passenger transport – reflect that growing footprint.”
