By ENGIE - 06 May 2022 - 17:13

Today, 6 May 2022, ENGIE and its partner Anglo American, one of the world's largest mining players, are jointly inaugurating the "Rhyno" project, officially renamed nuGen™, developed for the Mogalakwena platinum mine in South Africa. It is the world's largest hydrogen-powered mining truck, capable of carrying a payload of 290 tonnes. ENGIE is providing an integrated hydrogen solution, including production, compression, storage, and refuelling in record time. Once validated, this "proof of concept" should be extended to other sites. The aim is to reduce diesel emissions from mining mobility by up to 80%. With nuGen™ and other projects such as Hydra, ENGIE is contributing to the decarbonisation of a key sector for energy transition.
