The very active heavy-duty hydrogen fuel cell manufacturer Hyzon has strengthened its regional presence with the appointment of John Edgley to lead the company’s operations in Australia and New Zealand.
Edgley, a veteran of investment and business development, will assume his role as managing director on July 23, based in Melbourne, as Hyzon continues to expand his presence in the Australasian region.

Edgley has also served as a Director and Managing Director of Australian companies specializing in private equity, residential development and healthcare. He holds an MBA from Harvard University and a BS in Engineering from the University of Melbourne.
He will oversee the first delivery of hydrogen fuel cell coaches by Hyzon to Fortescue Metals Group’s Christmas Creek iron ore center in Western Australia and the first hydrogen engines to Hiringa Energy in New Zealand.
âThere is a huge opportunity in this region of the world for Hyzon to introduce its hydrogen fuel cell technology,â said Edgley.
He added: âIt is a real privilege to create new jobs, new manufacturing and technology facilities, and a fundamentally new industry in Australia and New Zealand that will underpin a sustainable future for us all. “
Hyzon CEO and Co-Founder Craig Knight said that “Edgley’s experience in the energy and industrial world will allow us to continue to expand our presence in these high growth regions of the world and ready for hydrogen “.
Edgley’s appointment precedes Hyzon’s merger with Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation, a specialist acquisition company, which aims to make Hyzon a publicly traded company.
