Hyzon, a global supplier of zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cells that powers commercial vehicles, including heavy duty trucks, buses and coaches recently announced the appointment of John Edgley, Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, effective from July 23.
John Edgley with over 2 decades of experience, an investment and business development specialist is entrusted to handle multinational industrial operations. He will also look after the overseas operations of the company, primarily focusing on Hyzon’s expansion of its hydrogen fuel cell-powered heavy vehicle business in Australasia. Apart from this, John Edgley will handle delivery of the first hydrogen-powered prime movers to Hiringa Energy in New Zealand.
“There is an enormous opportunity in this region of the world for Hyzon to introduce its hydrogen fuel cell technology. The long distances, extreme weather conditions and challenging terrain, along with prolific mining activity, create the need for high performance, rugged technology," shared John Edgley.
He further added, "We stand at a pivotal point in history as hydrogen takes over from fossil fuels and Hyzon is positioned to power the next era of economic growth. It is a real privilege to be building new jobs, new manufacturing and technology facilities, and a fundamentally new industry in Australia and New Zealand, that will underpin a sustainable future for us all."
With this new leadership in place, Hyzon seems set to achieve its long term goals, to continue to expand its business world-wide by introducing imported commercial vehicles in addition to localizing the production of key platforms including refuse collection vehicles and road trains for use in the mining sector.
