Fortescue to deploy hydrogen coaches at Christmas Creek

Ten hydrogen-powered coaches will replace the existing fleet of diesel coaches at Christmas Creek next year, as part of a $32m renewable hydrogen mobility project.

Custom built by hydrogen fuel cell vehicle company Hyzon Motors, the coaches will be supported by a refuelling station which will harness renewable electricity from the Chichester Solar Gas Hybrid Project to generator renewable hydrogen onsite.
