Fortescue Metals Group has contracted for up to 10 of Hyzon’s custom-built buses in the Christmas Creek mining hub, where summer temperatures commonly exceed 110 degrees. Fortescue expressed interest in Hyzon’s proprietary fuel cell technology using hydrogen gas – for which emissions are limited to water vapor – to replace a fleet of diesel vehicles for transporting workers around remote mining sites.

Hyzon CEO Craig Knight said that passing the durability phase – the equivalent of driving more than seven times straight from New York to Miami – demonstrated anew that its vehicles are clean, powerful and uniquely suited for long haul and high utilization back-to-base transport. The coaches have a range up to 800km (about 497 miles) before refueling.
