Plug Power Inc. has been selected by ENGIE to provide a custom refuelling system for the world’s largest hydrogen-powered mine haul truck.
The refuelling system, delivered by Plug Power to support the mine haul truck, will be the largest refuelling system the company has built to date, with an expected output of 1,000kg per day.
“The incredible scope of this project reaffirms not only Plug Power’s commitment to facilitating the global adoption of hydrogen as a clean energy source, but also our position as the world leader in hydrogen refuelling,” said Andy Marsh, Plug Power CEO.
“Our partnership with ENGIE is opening the door to exciting new opportunities outside of both the US, and the material handling market where we have continuously demonstrated our expertise.”
ENGIE is working with global mining company Anglo American to develop the renewable hydrogen production and refuelling solution to support the mine haul vehicle.
The first fuelling of the new hydrogen truck is expected to take place in the second half of 2020 and will be followed by a testing and validation at a South African mine.
