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.
Following on the UITP “Fuel Cell Buses: Best Practices and Commercialisation Approaches” knowledge brief published in partnership with JIVE and JIVE 2 projects in July as part of the “Back to Better Mobility” Campaign, UITP continues to support the deployment of fuel cell hydrogen bus solution this time by organising its first-ever training module on the technology. The training is organised by JIVE projects in collaboration with Clean Bus Europe Platform.
Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) and Caetano Bus yesterday signed a contract for the supply of eight hydrogen-powered electric buses, with which Barcelona will position itself as a benchmark in the application of this zero-emission technology in the regular passenger transport of an urban network in Spain.
At the beginning of the week, public transport operator RATP began experimenting with a hydrogen-powered bus in real operating conditions with passengers on line 185. Manufactured by Solaris, this 12m bus will be subjected to a battery of drastic technical tests. It will be based at the Thiais bus centre in the Val-de-Marne. The hydrogen will be supplied by the Air Liquide station located in the commune of Loges-en-Josas in the Yvelines.
