Together with Hiringa Energy, we’re working to develop New Zealand’s first nationwide hydrogen refueling stations network. Our partnership brings together the entrepreneurial spirit, complementary skills and strengths of our two innovative, future-focused Kiwi companies to provide leadership in the development of hydrogen as a viable alternative commercial fuel source for New Zealand.
Detailed engineering requirements and consenting for a network of hydrogen refuelling sites – some of which will be on our existing Waitomo Fuel Stops – are already under way. Initial locations have been selected, with plans for a further 20 stations to be developed across both the North and South Islands by 2025.
In 2019, in partnership with WEL Networks, we installed our first electric vehicle (EV) charger at our Mystery Creek Fuel Stop. Read more here.
We’ve also invested in innovative vapour recovery technology in our tankers and Fuel Stop pumps to reduce our carbon footprint. The system – not widely used in New Zealand – sucks petrol that would otherwise escape back into the pump using a vacuum unit, where its condensed.
GoClear – an exhaust system additive and scrubbing agent that reduces nitrogen oxide emissions for diesel vehicles is also available at many of our sites.
