CM Rotterdam - 13/14 February 2019
February 13/14 the 9th Consortium Meeting of the 3Emotion project took place in Rotterdam, at the invitation of RET.
The consortium meetings are organised twice a year. They bring together representatives from all 3Emotion partners.
Progress is monitored and planning of the forthcoming period is discussed.
The consortium visited the hydrogen staton of Air liquide in Rotterdam. 2 buses of the 3Emotion project already refuel at the station since september 2017.
These buses are driving in the city center of Rotterdam (Charlois) for operator RET.
At the moment, the station is getting an upgrade, to be able to refuel 4 more buses.
Those buses will start driving in the region of Rotterdam as of april 2019, for the operator CONNEXXION.
Both types of buses are shown on the picture.
The bus on the left is an 'RET' bus. The bus is manufactured by the Flemish busmanufacturer Van Hool.
The bus at the right is a 'concept' of the buses that will drive for CONNEXXION. These buses - manufactured by the Dutch manufacturer VDL - are electric buses with a hydrogen range extender.
