From 4WD utes to garbage trucks, Pure Hydrogen is revolutionising transport with fuel cell tech
Meet the locally designed ‘Taurus’, a 220kW prime mover that includes a hydrogen refuelling point, and a low voltage power storage system.
A trial for the Taurus will begin shortly after with PepsiCo. The vehicle's co-development project was led by Pure Hydrogen with input from global food and beverage conglomerate under a deal signed in September 2022.
With exclusive rights to the truck design in Australia, Pure Hydrogen have said there is potential for multi-vehicle orders following completion of the trial period.
Pure Hydrogen is also completing development of Australia’s first hydrogen-powered Hydrogen Fuel Cell Refuse Collection Vehicle (HFCRCV) or garbage truck. On track to be delivered by the end of this quarter, the HFCRCV will be trialled by JJ Waste and Recycling.
The company also owns a 24% stake in hydrogen vehicle company H2X Global, producers of the 4WD hydrogen fuelled utility vehicle the Warrego, which is undergoing final testing and approvals before being released to the European market.
Managing Director Pure Hydrogen Scott Brown said: “A key part of Pure Hydrogen's strategy is to provide hydrogen solutions bringing the devices and the energy needed to power them to customers. The Taurus marks an important step in this strategy."
