Green hydrogen production company Hiringa Energy will reveal details of its to hydrogen refuelling stations at TruckShowX, Australia’s largest-ever transport decarbonisation event.

Green hydrogen is produced by splitting water into its constituent parts, hydrogen and oxygen, using zero carbon emissions energy sources.

Hiringa Energy is building green hydrogen production projects using renewable energy to displace the use of fossil fuels for transport and industrial purposes.

“The interconnected ecosystem of technological solutions that must exist for transport decarbonisation to become a reality is complex and covers many new and exciting areas for the transport industry to consider,” Adam Ritzinger, HVIA Chief Technical Officer and TruckShowX Technical Program Manager, says.

“Future fuel production, distribution, storage and supply to the end-user is one particularly exciting area, and we are very pleased that TruckShowX will feature Ryan McDonald from Hiringa Energy to present on its network of refuelling stations in New Zealand, offering a glimpse of what may come soon for Australia.”

McDonald, who joined Hiringa Energy in 2019 as Head of New Business, says building one of the world’s first heavy vehicle hydrogen refuelling networks has been an “enormously satisfying challenge and I look forward to sharing some insights on the journey as part of the TruckShowX program”.

“Hydrogen will be doing the heavy lifting when it comes to decarbonising the freight and logistics supply chains; its versatility as an energy carrier is a perfect match for the high-productivity demands of the transport sector,” adds McDonald, whose career spans more than 20 years of engineering consultancy primarily in the energy and technology sectors.

A spin-off of the hugely successful Brisbane Truck Show, TruckShowX is set to be the biggest trucking industry decarbonisation event held to date in Australia.

To be held May 13-14, 2024 at RACV Cape Schanck Resort in Victoria, it will explore low and zero-emissions vehicles (LZEV) and technology, and unpack the interconnected ‘ecosystem’ of equipment, infrastructure, services, regulations, policies, and people that must exist for them to work as a solution.

The two-day event will feature keynote presentations from global leaders in LZEV adoption, supported by practical case studies of local operators leading the decarbonisation effort.

Complementing this will be an expo showcasing the latest low- and zero-emissions vehicles and related technologies and, uniquely, a drive-day opportunity to get behind the wheel of the latest LZEVs.
