H2XGlobal Converts MOU with Swedish City Gothenburg For The Delivery of Hydrogen Commercial Vehicles.

Australia’s leading hydrogen fuel cell vehicle manufacturer H2X Global Ltd through its subsidy H2X Gothenburg and European Head Quarters based in Sweden, today announces the successful conversion of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to supply hydrogen powered commercial vehicles to Renova, one of Sweden’s major municipal waste companies.

Renova, which is owned by 10 municipalities across the Gothenburg Region in western Sweden.

The initial order is to provide two eighteen tonne garbage back loader units, one 3.5 tonne tail lift light commercial truck and an additional two Warrego Pick-Ups.

There are further 3.5 tonne tail lift light commercial truck units included in the MOU to follow soon.

This decision of additional commercial vehicles from the original MOU only strengthens H2X Global’s commitment in Scandinavia for the development and production of commercial Hydrogen vehicles to the Public & transport industry using Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric propulsion.

This partnership with Renova and the City of Gothenburg is a clear commitment of the city to reach Sweden’s target of net zero before 2045 and by 2030 to reduce emissions by 70% compared to 2010 with the conversion of their existing fleet of diesel-powered vehicles zero-emission trucks powered with hydrogen fuel cell electric drive systems.

These trucks are scheduled for delivery from the second half of 2023.


Peter Westh – Head of Northern Europe states

“With the partnership with Gothenburg City and Revona and the Hydrogen Initiative in Sweden, we are collectively taking a major step and contribute to the development and establishment of a hydrogen-based eco system and the commitment to reduce emissions in the Gothenburg region.”


Chris Reitz – H2X Global Co-Founder & Chief Design Officer states

“Renova has shown their commitment to the green hydrogen economy, and we are proud to partner with them in the conversion of their traditional fossil fuel vehicles to H2X range of vehicles in the transitioning to a zero-emission region.

This partnership highlights the Company’s ability to work with innovative, fleet operators like Renova and Gothenburg City in delivering commercial vehicles which will meet the needs of the customer and utilising new technology such as use of super capacitors playing its part in reducing the current pressures and environmental impacts with the need for using large scale batteries.”

H2X executes groundbreaking deal to start Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle production in Sarawak, Malaysia

H2X Global has been handpicked by the Sarawak State government in Malaysia to help it build the region into a major hydrogen hub through the production and delivery of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

State-owned Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC), through its wholly owned subsidiary SEDC Energy, has signed an MOU to form a joint venture with H2X Global for the manufacturing, assembly and development of a range of strategic transport projects.

H2X Global revealed today that the JV will immediately begin with the assembly of relevant vehicles – from its trademark Warrego Pick up to City Buses and H2x Hydrogen Powered Generators, taking advantage of the hydrogen distribution network already set-up within Sarawak State.

H2X Global founder and CEO Brendan Norman said Sarawak was already well ahead of most states in the region and was well advanced in the establishment of long-term hydrogen production for both domestic and export use.

“It is likely that Sarawak will not only produce vehicles for its own use but will become a major supplier to other States and countries in the region,” he said.

Establishing South East Asia’s hydrogen epicentre

SEDC Energy has developed a strategic blueprint for Sarawak to become a hub for the emerging ASEAN hydrogen energy market.

The government first introduced hydrogen-powered vehicles in the state in 2019.

This new partnership will see H2X supply and assemble additional vehicles, including in excess of 50 buses in the coming 18 months, to meet growing demand.

SEDC Energy CEO Robert Hardin said Sarawak had a unique opportunity to become a leader in the development of renewable energy transport.

“We have been using hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles for a few years now as Sarawak was an early adopter, and now we are adding projects such as hydrogen production to supply our neighbours, who are now also embracing hydrogen and other forms of renewable energy.

“H2X is a global leader in fuel cell technology, and we believe the joint venture will bring significant economic and environmental benefits to Sarawak and the Sarawak Southern Region Development for Malaysia and the ASEAN region.”

H2X Global is the company behind Australia’s first hydrogen fuel cell electric ute, which attracted more than $50m of pre-reservations for the vehicle, set to be delivered to customers in 2022.

That success led the company to expand its product offering through the development of a range of additional vehicles, including heavy-platform vehicles. 

H2X wants to build its hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in Gippsland

H2X Global is progressing its goal of building a hydrogen economy in Australia with plans to build hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles in Gippsland, Victoria.

Under the agreement with the Gippsland Circular Economy Precinct (GCEP), the company will seek to manufacture hydrogen fuel cells, electrolysers, hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles and a range of hydrogen power units including generators and emergency power supplies in the region.

GCEP is a consortium of Gippsland-based businesses who recognised the need to transition the local economy from brown coal power generation to renewables.

The support of H2X, which developed its own highly efficient hydrogen fuel cell technology and hydrogen power trains for vehicles and machinery, is expected to help fast-track these transition plans.

“This is a great opportunity for Gippsland to engage with hydrogen technology and provide new enterprises, new jobs and training in support,” H2X founder and chief executive officer Brendan Norman said.

“We aim to assist in establishing Gippsland as the world’s preeminent location of green hydrogen excellence.

“We are now investigating a number of manufacturing options including fuel cell production and some vehicles.”

GCEP executive director Brett Singh added that the region’s high level of engineering, power generation and manufacturing expertise was a major factor in the decision to establish the centre of excellence and renewables precinct in the area.

The agreement has also drawn strong community support.

H2X Global

H2X recently formed a strategic partnership with hydrogen developer Pure Hydrogen (ASX:PH2), which saw the latter issue 8.62 million shares to acquire a 24% stake in the company.

This could increase to 48% if the attached share options are exercised.

The company also secured more than $50m in pre-orders for its Warrego FCEV ute.
