Sasol plans to build a charging station in South Africa to test the viability of fuel-cell powered heavy duty vehicles.

Sasol and its partner, Toyota Motor, will install hydrogen refuelling infrastructure along the N3 highway connecting Johannesburg and the port of Durban, chief executive officer Fleetwood Grobler said in a statement Wednesday. The South African fuel maker plans to use a prototype truck that’s being built in Japan in the pilot phase of the project, the CEO said.

“Our partnership with Toyota, which will include other partners over time, aims to build a sustainable end-to-end infrastructure for hydrogen mobility,” Grobler said.

Toyota’s joint-venture with Sasol would help scale up investment in critical infrastructure such as charging stations and the fuel itself, said Andrew Kirby, CEO of the automaker’s local business.

I think Sasol/Toyota would get far more social credit by rather diverting the massive amount of renewable energy required to make green hydrogen to provide power to communities without it….for the same CO2 credits…and same negative financial return….
