ENGIE and Anglo American announced their agreement to co-create and fuel the first hydrogen-powered mining haul truck. This project is part of ENGIE’s strategy to promote renewable hydrogen to help its customers decarbonize their operations. It is aligned with Anglo American’s initiatives towards mining with zero climate impact. This collaboration between the two companies marks the first time a truck of this size and load capacity (300 metric tons) will be converted to run on hydrogen. ENGIE will provide the hydrogen generation solutions while Anglo American will develop the truck.

The modifications to the existing truck include replacing the diesel tank with hydrogen tanks, and replacing the engine with hydrogen fuel cells and a battery pack. The hydrogen will be provided by the solar power generation capacity at the mining site.

First motion of the hydrogen powered truck is expected in 2020, followed by a testing and validation program at Anglo American’s Mogalakwena Platinum Group Metals mine in South Africa, after which additional trucks are expected to be rolled out at other Anglo American operations.
