August 18, 2020 Nowadays, industry fields are pursuing energy-saving production. And also, scientific researchers have been developing kinds of new energy to reduce the harm of fossil fuels. In Australia, which is famous for its mining industry, a large number of heavy vehicles have been continually consuming diesel and then exhausting harmful gas in western area. Recently, An AUD$32 million renewable hydrogen mobility project first points to Australia’s strong mining operation. The first batch of 10 hydrogen vehicles jointly developed by Bonluck & Hyzon Motors will be introduced to replace the existing diesel vehicles. Furthermore, to support these new energy vehicles, fueling station will be built to generate renewable hydrogen onsite.
Fortescue Metals Group Ltd is a global leader in the iron ore industry, recognized for its culture, innovation and industry-leading development of world class infrastructure and mining assets in the Pilbara, Western Australia. FMG is proud of the longstanding and profound cooperation relationship with China. Up to now, the total export volume of iron ore FMG has shipped to China is over 880 million tons. In addition to the steady export to China, FMG also purchased more than AUD$1 billion of equipment from Chinese suppliers for mine operations. As a leading mining enterprise, Fortescue Deputy Chief Executive Officer Julie Shuttle worth said, “This project represents a first step towards decarburizing our mobile fleet, which is an important part of our goal to achieve net zero operational emissions…”Fortescue has received AUD$2 million through the Western Australian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund to support the development of this project.
BONLUCK is the first buses &coaches manufacturer in China exporting in large quantities to developed countries and regions including the US and Australia. At present, BLK products have successfully passed Australia ADR certification, US DOT certification, EU ECE and other oversea certifications. The vehicle models exported to Australia, such as president, senator, cooper and so on, have been praised by customers and local operators.
In the field of R&D and manufacturing of new energy and clean energy buses, BLK has always been at the forefront of the industry. From the first domestic new energy series city bus and tourist bus exported to Australia in 2008 to the batch of hybrid electric buses in Latin America in 2018, BLK has repeatedly become a model for domestic new energy and clean energy bus export to overseas markets. In the local market, there are also thousands of new energy buses serving the city.
BLK’s deputy general manager Li Han said, “Since 2008, BLK has been devoting itself to the development of high-end market, especially in the field of new energy vehicle, and has always maintained the leading edge in the industry. After more than ten years of development, technology innovation and process improvement, now BLK new energy bus has been exported to many overseas markets.
In the development of overseas market, BLK is committed to seeking for high-end partners to jointly develop markets, such as SCANIA and MAN. In this Australian project, based on BLK’s advanced bus R&D, BLK will fully cooperate with Hyzon Motors to meet the demand of Australia's hydrogen energy bus market ,establish a solid foundation for its new energy status in Australia, and make adequate preparations for other new energy markets. “Through selection and competition, FMG has finally selected BLK as the manufacturer of hydrogen energy vehicle. We believe this is highly recognized by FMG and Australian market for BLK products. BLK will also take this project to further improve the quality of bus, supply cleaner new energy products and better serve Australian passenger transport!” Li Han said,“BLK is the first Chinese brand to export buses to Australia, and will also be the first Chinese brand to export hydrogen energy buses to Australia.”
