It is now widely acknowledged that the future of public transport buses will have to be zero-emission. Fuel cell electric buses (FCEB’s - also called hydrogen buses) are one of the technologies that meet that requirement.
Friday 28 September 2017 , the first fuel cell electric buses of the 3Emotion project, funded by the FCH-JU, will run for the first time on line 70 of public transport operator RET in Rotterdam.
- Pau will put in service France’s first fuel cell electric buses : 8 Van Hool Exqui.City's (the so-called tram buses) powered by hydrogen
- Delivery of the buses scheduled second half of 2019
It is now widely acknowledged that the future of public transport buses will have to be zero-emission.
Fuel cell electric buses are one of the technologies that meet that requirement.
Friday June 30, the first fuel cell electric buses of the 3Emotion project, manufactured by Van Hool, are launched at public transport operator RET in Rotterdam.
The buses will fuel at the existing refuelling station of Air Liquide in Rotterdam, of which the storage capacity is expanded for this purpose, also within the 3Emotion project.
This week (may 24), Wuppertal based WSW mobil GmbH has tendered the procurement of 63 fuel cell buses for operation in public transport. WSW is coordinating the joint procurement for its partners Verkehrs-Verbund Mainz-Wiesbaden GmbH, traffiQ Frankfurt, Regionalverkehr Köln GmbH (all Germany) and SASA SpA-AG in Bolzano (Itay) which are going to operate these buses in the next years. The tender can be found on Tenders Electronic Daily1.
Aberdeen is home to Europe’s largest hydrogen fuel cell bus fleet, with 10 buses operating on the City’s roads, supported by the UK’s largest fully integrated renewable hydrogen production and refuelling station. As a leader in hydrogen technology development, Aberdeen hosted a series of events during the 2017 Hydrogen Week to further support and share learning on hydrogen technologies. Local authorities, fleet operators, industry partners and
The High V.LO-City project, which aims at facilitating the deployment of fuel cell electric buses and their related hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in European cities, launches a new demonstration site for fuel cell electric buses in Groningen (Netherlands). The Groningen site is the fourth deployment site in High V.LOCity after Aberdeen, Antwerp and San Remo.
CHIC has launched its final project report entitled “fuel cell electric buses: a proven zero emission solution. Key facts, results, recommendations” at the International Zero Emission Bus Conference in London, City Hall.
