Hyzon deploys fuel cell waste truck in Australia

Hyzon initiated its trial for a heavy rigid fuel cell electric truck to perform waste collection in Australia.

Hyzon Motors announced the commercial trial deployment of its first heavy rigid fuel cell electric waste collection truck, Remondis Australia, a recycling, service and water company in the country. The commercial trial is expected to convert to full vehicle sales if certain trial performance targets are met. Hyzon said it developed its heavy rigid truck in Australia to be adaptable for international markets with many vehicle use cases, such as garbage compactors, tilt trays and flatbed trucks.

Development of the heavy rigid program in Australia has allowed Hyzon to tap into local engineering and technical knowledge to build a team, process and product for Hyzon’s targeted U.S. and global markets, the company said. Building on the back of this ISO-certified Australian-developed platform, the first U.S. FCEV waste collection vehicle is in assembly, readying for expected customer trials in the U.S. in 1H 2024.

Remondis operates in over 30 countries globally, with 39 business locations around Australia servicing more than 24,000 Australian commercial, industrial and municipal customers. The waste collection truck will service the Wollongong and Shellharbour municipalities from Remondis’s Wollongong facility in New South Wales.

Hyzon said its heavy-duty waste collection truck was designed against the industry benchmark of a 200-kilometer (approx. 125 miles) range and 1500 bin lifts per working day. The truck has been developed in partnership with Superior Pak, an Australian manufacturer of mobile waste collection and compaction equipment.

The truck is now in service and on the road in New South Wales.
