On Friday, 11 June 2021, a new hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) opened at the Qbuzz bus depot in Groningen. In addition, twenty new VanHool hydrogen buses were presented. This fleet was partly funded by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) under the JIVE 2 project.
German transport operator Regionalverkehr Köln (RVK) has taken delivery of the first of 15 Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen fuel cell buses ordered in March 2020. The bus will now be tested at RVK's Wermelskirchen branch in the Rheinisch-Bergisch district. This is the first time a new manufacturer has joined RVK's hydrogen vehicle fleet, which now totals 37 buses.
The Wiesbaden transport operator ESWE Verkehr has ordered ten Caetano H2.City Gold fuel cell buses. Delivery of the first vehicle is scheduled for the third quarter of 2021. The remaining vehicles will follow by the end of November 2021. These emission-free fuel cell buses are another essential element in the implementation of Wiesbaden's clean air plan.
The world’s first hydrogen fuel cell double-decker bus will enter service tomorrow in Aberdeen, Scotland.
First Bus – Scotland’s largest bus operator - will operate this zero-emission fleet in a project led by Aberdeen City Council. These innovative, clean buses show the city’s commitment to transition to green energy from oil and gas as part of its Net Zero vision.
