Anglo American, Aurizon to Explore Viability of Hydrogen-Fuelled Trains in Australia

By Jaime Llinares Taboada

 

Anglo American PLC said Monday that it will work with Aurizon Holdings Ltd. to assess the introduction of hydrogen-powered trains for bulk freight in Queensland, Australia.

The mining giant and Aurizon, an Australian freight company, have agreed to explore the application of Anglo American's hydrogen fuel cell and battery hybrid power units in heavy-haul rail freight operations, it said.

If this study is successful, the collaboration could be extended to develop a haul-locomotive prototype.

The project will focus on the Moura and Mount Isa rail corridors in Australia.
