UK-based ULEMCo signed an exclusive MoU with ENGV Pty Ltd to collaborate on developing a market for its hydrogen dual fuel technology in Australia. The scope of the agreement extends across Australia and into commercial vehicles, particularly heavy-duty applications like refuse collection, urban trucks, buses and prime movers.
By using hydrogen to displace diesel directly in the engine, ULEMCo’s dual fuel technology H2ICED enables vehicle owners to reduce their carbon emissions by up to 40%, as well as offering a practical solution that is immediately available.

Additionally, by providing a low-risk option for fleetwide conversion, it can provide demand for investment in hydrogen refueling infrastructure that can accelerate the overall take up of hydrogen technologies globally.
ENGV developed and now operates Australia’s first public hydrogen refueling station (HRS) in Canberra, with plans to support the growth of industry by the deployment of best-in-class HRS solutions for both public and depot-based refueling.
The existing diesel fleet replacement cycle in Australia is generally between 7-20 years. We see the unique ULEMCo technology as providing a hydrogen load for infrastructure investment whilst also delivering immediate CO2 and tailpipe emission reduction benefits. ENGV has many years of experience with the development and deployment of gas heavy vehicles in Australia. We were previously involved with LNG and CNG truck installation and operation in Australia. We see this technology as a natural extension of our core business and competencies.—Sean Blythe, CEO of ENGV
