Hydrogen fuel cells are set to power over 1,000 trucks owned by Pan-United Concrete, the subsidiary of Singapore’s largest concrete and cement provider.

Confirming the clean shift today (Jan 5), the company said it has teamed up with Surbana Jurong for the effort which will assess hydrogen’s potential for concrete mixers and tipper trucks that currently operate on diesel.

On Pan-United’s efforts, Yeo Choon Chong, CEO of Surbana Jurong’s ASEAN Division, said, “We applaud Pan-United’s ambition to decarbonise its heavy vehicle fleet and are excited to contribute to its sustainability initiative by leveraging our expertise in electrification and hydrogen solutions.

“Partnerships are a key method of accelerating our collective efforts to build for a safe, sustainable and resilient future for all.”

The announcement market Pan-United’s second collaboration with Surbana Jurong, with the company’s previously inking a deal to identify and develop carbon capture technologies.
