Australia-based Pure Hydrogen Corporation has entered an arrangement with PepsiCo Australia to trial a hydrogen-fueled prime mover at one of PepsiCo’s manufacturing sites in the City of Brisbane. Pure Hydrogen will supply PepsiCo with a Hydrogen Fuel Cell 160kW 6 x 4 Prime Mover (HFCV Prime Mover). The company will also provide additional hydrogen fuel as required, including refueling along with arranging repair & maintenance services.
The trial will commence in 2Q 2023 and will run for approximately 6 months. Following the trial, PepsiCo will assess the commercial use-case with the potential to order further hydrogen-powered vehicles over the period 2023-25.
