AP Ventures' limited partner, Anglo American, announced the launch of its Zero Emission Haulage Solution (ZEHS) truck
Anglo American plc, one of AP Ventures’ limited partners, unveiled a prototype of the world’s largest hydrogen-powered mine haul truck designed to operate in everyday mining conditions at its Mogalakwena precious metals mine in South Africa. The 2MW hydrogen-battery hybrid truck, generating more power than its diesel predecessor; is part of Anglo American’s nuGen™ Zero Emission Haulage Solution. nuGen™ is an end-to-end integrated green hydrogen production, fuelling and haulage system for mine sites developed by the Company. The truck marks a significant step towards decarbonising and achieving sustainable mining operations both in South Africa and globally. Anglo American plans to replace the Company’s 40 diesel-powered fleet with green hydrogen systems, reducing emissions and ensuring that eight of the Company’s 27 mines reach carbon neutrality by 2030.
