Fortescue Metals Group is an Australian company primarily founded on iron ore mining. Its subsidiary Fortescue Future Industries, however, is a clean tech company focusing on worldwide green hydrogen and ammonia production, electrolyzer manufacturing, and the decarbonization of trucks, drains, boats and aircraft.
Australian mining company Fortescue has taken delivery of a 1.4-MWh prototype battery that's heading for a 240-tonne electric mining haul truck developed in partnership with Liebherr, and will begin testing later in the year.
Australian mining company Fortescue has acquired Williams Advanced Engineering, and announced the two companies' first joint green-tech project: a battery-electric "Infinity Train" that'll haul iron ore without ever needing to plug in or fuel up.
Australian mining billionaire Andrew Forrest has announced he's challenged his team to get the world's first ammonia-powered ship into service by 2022, following their rapid success with hydrogen mining trucks and ammonia-powered locomotives.
