I order to achieve that, they have now signed a partnership with Williams Advanced engineerig tht will eventually evolve into worlds biggest Hydrogen-powered mine truck. An this is not all, as Williams is also going to develop world’s first high voltage battery system for the company’s Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle machine.
Craig Wilson, MD of Williams Advanced Engineering, commented: “We are delighted to be involved in this innovative and exciting project which showcases the scalability of battery technology from automotive and motorsport to “heavy duty” industrial applications. Operating within a harsh environment is something we are familiar with as sole battery supplier for the Extreme E programme and we remain committed to supporting long-term sustainability projects.”
