OneH2 recently announced a partnership with Ampol, an Australian company that supplies the country’s largest branded petrol and convenience network. In this new partnership, Ampol will represent OneH2 in the Australian hydrogen market as part of the company’s initiative to expand its zero-emissions fueling options.
Partnering with OneH2 will allow Ampol to offer a unique and complete refueling solution giving customers the opportunity to test hydrogen technology and gain a better understanding of the benefits it can provide for their operations.
Ampol Executive General Manager, International and New Business, Brent Merrick said the OneH2 partnership is a natural extension to Ampol’s existing core transport fuels business given the similar experience of refueling hydrogen-powered vehicles and internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.
“We are excited to partner with OneH2 and expand our role in the hydrogen space, as we continue to work to deliver safe, reliable, and convenient future energy solutions for customers,” Merrick said. “Hydrogen has a key role to play in reducing emissions across Australia’s transport and broader energy sector and offers a unique opportunity to decarbonize hard-to-abate heavy transport and heavy machinery sectors.”
“We expect early hydrogen adoption within heavier vehicle fleets and operations who will benefit from short refueling times and longer range compared to current battery electric alternatives,”
Paul Dawson, President & CEO of OneH2 said. “Our products are engineered to the highest standard and we are excited to see them in use supporting Australia’s decarbonization efforts. Over the last 18 months, we have been pleasantly surprised and encouraged by Ampol’s forward-thinking strategy for hydrogen in the transport sector. As the Australian-owned iconic energy provider, we’re proud to be working with Ampol. Hydrogen as a transport fuel is not easy. Our experience in designing, manufacturing, and deploying hydrogen equipment across the US over the last 8 years, will allow us to accelerate its adoption in the Australian market.”
The first phase of the partnership will include the deployment of OneH2’s on-site hydrogen generation equipment to allow Ampol customers to easily and safely refuel their hydrogen equipment on-site.
