JCB Unveils Mobile Hydrogen Refueler for Construction Vehicles

JCB, a developer of construction machines powered by hydrogen, has unveiled a mobile hydrogen refueler. JCB has already showcased working prototypes of a backhoe loader and Loadall telescopic handler powered by hydrogen.

The mobile hydrogen refueler provides a way for customers to refuel their machines on-site. Around 97 per cent of construction machines have fuel delivered to them while working on site. This means customers are already used to transportable fuel, allowing refuelling to take place in a matter of minutes.

“Since we became the first construction equipment company to unveil machines powered by hydrogen, many have asked how they can be refuelled,” said JCB chairman Lord Bamford, who is leading JCB’s hydrogen project. “Well, today we have an answer with our new mobile hydrogen refuelling system, which allows hydrogen to be taken from on-site tube trailers and distributed to machines by our refueller as they work on the job site. This is no different to today when diesel is taken in bowsers to refuel machines.”

“Fossil fuels are not the future and hydrogen is the practical solution to powering our machines in the decades to come. Our British engineers are doing a fantastic job in developing this technology, and there are many more exciting developments to come.”
