ABC (Australia) - - YEAR IN REVIEW -


A call for ten­ders to sup­ply at least six hy­dro­gen cell buses for the Ade­laide Metro fleet, along with sup­port­ing pro­duc­tion and re­fu­elling in­fra­struc­ture, was put out by the South Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment. The plan is part of a broader ‘Hy­dro­gen Roadmap’ which has been de­signed to ac­cel­er­ate in­vest­ment in hy­dro­gen in­fra­struc­ture and tech­nolo­gies in the state. Within a decade, South Aus­tralian mo­torists should be able to travel from Ce­duna to Mt Gam­bier in a hy­dro­gen-fu­elled ve­hi­cle top­ping up at a state-wide net­work of re­fu­elling sta­tions.


Driver­less ve­hi­cle com­pany Navya will es­tab­lish an Asia-Pacific man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in Ade­laide after reach­ing an agree­ment with the South Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment. The deal fol­lowed talks be­tween Premier Jay Weather­ill and Navya CEO Christophe Sapet in Paris. Navya says it is at­tracted by South Australia’s car­bon-neu­tral and re­new­able en­ergy fo­cus. The French firm says a plant in Ade­laide will se­cure op­er­a­tions in Europe, the Amer­i­cas and Asia-Pacific.
