Hydrogen for Mining

Boosting the 24/7 mining industry with faster refuelling times.

Our hydrogen generation systems remove the high costs incurred by mines for the transportation of diesel fuel by providing a flexible solution, able to ensure energy security for a 24/7 production cycle.

Hydrogen offers the mining industry a huge opportunity to decarbonise processes currently used today to make them more environmentally friendly and safer.

Today, mining is responsible for the release of millions of metric tonnes of CO2 annually. 

Hydrogen offers the mining industry a huge opportunity to decarbonise processes to make them more environmentally friendly and safer. 

Currently mines rely on diesel for vehicles and backup power generators, and incur large logistical costs for the fuel because they tend to be in relatively remote places. 

Mines usually operate a 24/7 production cycle, which doesn’t tolerate long charge times, so hydrogen for mining trucks and machinery offers a good rapid-refuelling solution whilst achieving zero emissions in the underground environment. 

Hydrogen is also a flexible solution which offers an energy source for heating and cooling systems, and as a secondary backup fuel for electricity generation, therefore improving energy security.
