New Zealand’s Hiringa Energy and US-based HYZON Motors Inc. have signed a Heads of
Agreement that secures access for Hiringa and its fleet partners to the supply of zero emission
Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) powered by zero emission hydrogen fuel cell technology.
The heavy fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) will be tailored to meet the demanding and unique requirements of the New Zealand heavy freight and road transport sector and it is expected that the vehicles will enter service in New Zealand from the start of 2021.
This agreement supports Hiringa and its partners’ strategy to roll out over 1,500 FCEVs by
2026, driving the cost of the technology down and unlocking widespread adoption of zero
emission heavy transport.
