Fortescue, one of the world’s largest iron ore producers – a critical material for steel, magnets, batteries, and fertilizers – has pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030. To achieve this hugely ambitious goal, they enlisted the expertise of the Fortescue WAE engineers (formerly Williams Advanced Engineering) in Oxfordshire. The team were tasked with electrifying Fortescue’s massive 221-tonne payload haul trucks, which are now being outfitted with mind-bogglingly big 1.4 MWh batteries. We visited their prototype facility to discover how they’re doing it! @fullychargedshow @EverythingElectricShow
