Ballard joins the Hydra Consortium to decarbonise mining operations

Ballard Power Systems has today (20th April) joined the Hydra Consortium to help power heavy-duty mining equipment with renewable hydrogen instead of diesel.

In becoming a member of the consortium, Ballard will provide zero-emission fuel cell systems, that run on hydrogen, to support research and development projects.

Also members of the Hydra Consortium, Mining3 and Engie are aiming to decarbonise the mining sector and have identified the utilisation of hydrogen for heavy-duty mobility as a key factor to achieve this target.

Should this target be achieved, it could enable heavy-duty mining mobile equipment to run on renewable hydrogen, displacing diesel, allowing for zero-emission mining operations around the world.
