Hyzon Motors to build new HQ in Melbourne
Melbourne will be home to Hyzon Motors Australia’s headquarters, under a new partnership agreement with the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria.
For the new headquarters, Hyzon Motors will set up a purpose-built facility including corporate offices, showroom, assembly warehousing and workshop in conjunction with the RACV at their Noble Park location. The move is expected to generate over 100 localized engineering and manufacturing jobs by 2025, with hundreds more indirect jobs expected through the supply chain.
As part of the partnership, a first order of hydrogen-powered vehicles for RACV-owned subsidiary Nationwide Group is included. The move comes after Hyzon has been ramping up deliveries in Europe and China.
“We are focused on generating new jobs, new manufacturing and technology facilities, and a fundamentally new industry in Australia and New Zealand, that will underpin a sustainable future for the region,” said Managing Director for Hyzon Motors in Australia and New Zealand, John Edgley, before adding: “With governments across Australia and New Zealand shifting their focus towards hydrogen as a cost-competitive and zero-emission fuel source, Hyzon stands ready to support and partner on key projects and initiatives.”
