Bam makes Netherlands’ first hydrogen paving machine

Bam Infra Nederland has converted an asphalt spreading paving machine so it runs on hydrogen instead of diesel.

It says it’s the first hydrogen-fuelled machine in the Dutch construction industry.

The machine emits virtually no nitrogen oxide and will save around 80,420kg of CO2 a year, Bam said.

It also saves around 150 litres of diesel a day. Operatives can fill the hydrogen tank in around 15 minutes.

Energy-system supplier Koninklijke van Twist advised on the conversion.

Bam said that because it doesn’t use a fuel cell, the paver can run on hydrogen of any quality.
