Working together for a greener future
Viva Energy’s New Energies Service Station project aims to demonstrate the practical use of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) across a variety of transport applications that cannot be easily de-carbonised. These include road freight, public transport, municipal waste management, water treatment and general fleet vehicles.
A diverse group of transport businesses will operate at least 15 hydrogen-powered heavy vehicles, servicing a multitude of industries in Geelong and South Western Victoria.
The New Energies Service Station project will demonstrate the successful integration of these hydrogen FCEVs into day-to-day commercial operations, serviced by standardised contracts for the supply of green hydrogen.
Through this market leading initiative, Viva Energy and its partners will actively reduce the carbon footprint of the heavy vehicles we rely on every day.
The New Energies Service Station project illustrates the benefits of industry and government working together to address carbon emissions in the commercial road transport sector.
