ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyzon Motors Inc. (Hyzon) (NASDAQ: HYZN), a leading hydrogen fuel cell technology developer and global supplier of zero-emission heavy-duty fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) today announced the commercial trial deployment of its first Heavy Rigid fuel cell electric waste collection truck to REMONDIS Australia, one of the world's largest recycling, service, and water companies. The commercial trial is expected to convert to a full vehicle purchase if certain trial performance targets are met.

"Hyzon has a road ready truck, that's been designed locally in Australia, and is now on the roads for a commercial trial with one of the largest recycling companies in the world. It is an exciting day for Hyzon," said Hyzon Motors Australia's Managing Director John Edgley. "We expect this trial to demonstrate Hyzon's capability to deliver a world class zero emissions truck with class leading performance and a new world of zero emissions benefits. Together with REMONDIS Australia we will build confidence for the trucking sector to accelerate the transition to zero emissions. We believe hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles will play a vital role in the decarbonisation of the transport sector and be a key component of Australia and New Zealand's fuel security strategy into the future."

"We're demonstrating that carbon-free transport can and does work in industrial settings," said REMONDIS Australia CEO Björn Becker. "We're hopeful that this is the start of a bigger journey whereby companies around the world follow REMONDIS' lead and turn to fleet decarbonization. This should be likely as economies of scale take effect, making the take-up of such technology the norm and not the exception. REMONDIS has gone all-out to deliver this ground-breaking environmental initiative at the earliest possible time and it's something we're very proud of."

Hyzon developed its Heavy Rigid truck in Australia as a global platform, adaptable for international markets with a multitude of vehicle use cases, such as garbage compactors, tilt trays, and flatbed trucks. Development of the Heavy Rigid program in Australia has allowed Hyzon to tap into highly skilled local engineering and technical knowledge to build a team, process, and product for Hyzon's targeted U.S. and global markets. Building on the back of this ISO-certified Australian developed platform, the first U.S. FCEV waste collection vehicle is in assembly, readying for expected customer trials in the U.S. in 1H 2024.

REMONDIS operates in over 30 countries globally, with 39 business locations around Australia servicing more than 24,000 Australian commercial, industrial, and municipal customers. The waste collection truck will service the Wollongong and Shellharbour municipalities, operating from REMONDIS's Wollongong facility in New South Wales.

Hyzon's heavy-duty waste collection truck was designed against the industry benchmark of a 200-kilometre (125 miles) range and 1500 bin lifts per working day. The truck has been developed in partnership with Superior Pak, Australia's leading manufacturer of world class mobile waste collection and compaction equipment.

The truck is in service and on the road in New South Wales now.
