The ASX-listed Pure Hydrogen will launch its HD49T hydrogen fuel cell prime mover at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show tomorrow at 10:50am

While not the first HFCEV on the market, the company claims it will be the catalyst for future long-haul trucking across Australia.

Pure Hydrogen is strategically developing a hydrogen ecosystem in Australia which covers all aspects of the market from production to end-use so it can provide customers with energy-efficient hydrogen solutions that are fully costed for the life of the assets.

Mobility is one of them. Power generation is the other. Hydrogen production the third.

Pure Hydrogen has already leased this truck to PepsiCo Australia and will be used in Brisbane as a back-to-base truck taking product from factory to distribution centre on a daily basis.

The company believes it will be a stepping-stone to help PepsiCo decarbonise.

Pure Hydrogen says it has other customers preparing for roll out of other projects and is taking orders from new customers.

The Pure Hydrogen truck is an Australian-designed model developed in partnership with ZEV company HDrive and has a top speed of 100km/hr and a range of 500km on a full tank of hydrogen.

This size truck is ideal for the back-to-base transport model. The company has many other models and designs available and suitable for different industries.

The truck will be refuelled via Pure Hydrogen’s original mobile refuelling method.

Part of Pure Hydrogen’s production method includes its proposed Moreton Bay Hydrogen Hub to the north of Brisbane where the company will be supplying green hydrogen (electrolyser) and emerald hydrogen (waste-to-hydrogen via gasification).

Check the truck out on Stand 130 in the Great Hall.
