Global mining company, Anglo American, has engaged Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE) to develop its new Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV): a 290-tonne electrically powered mining haul truck, which is set to be the world’s largest electrified vehicle. ( Earlier post .) Anglo American As part of its FutureSmart Mining program, which applies innovative thinking and technological advances to address mining’s major sustainability challenges, Anglo American has committed to reducing its global greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030. Putting electrified vehicles into mines—from large haul trucks to passenger vehicles and employee buses—will help Anglo American reach these ambitious decarbonization targets, as set out in its Sustainable Mining Plan. The FCEV haul truck will be powered by a hydrogen Fuel Cell Module (provided by Ballard, earlier post ) paired with a WAE scalable high-power modular lithium-ion battery system. This arrangement, which replaces the existing vehicle’s diesel engine, is controlled by […]
