Fuel cell vehicles
The Hague is the first Dutch city with
a taxi fleet running on H₂ (Toyota Mirai, specifically)
As part of the
European Commission's JIVE project
a dozen H₂ buses for Bolzano, Italy
. The buses are
manufactured by Solaris and have a range of 350 km on a single tank of LH2
FlixMobility (parent company of Flixbus)
plans to operate fuel cell coaches on long-distance routes
(2019-11). This as part of the research project HyFleet together with its partners Freudenberg Fuel Cell e-Power Systems and ZF Friedrichshafen AG, overseen by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, with
start of commercial operation slated for 2024
. More sources:
H₂-powered double decker buses have started operation in Aberdeen, UK
(2021-02). The project was
funded by the city, the EU, and the Scottish government, for 15 buses costing about 0.5 million GBP apiece
Gross-Gerau district in Germany plans for 80 H₂-powered buses in its fleet by 2028
. I wonder how many buses the city operates in total.
Hyundai plans to sell
1600 heavy trucks in Europe, and cooperates with Hydrospider for the H₂ supply
San Bernardino county in California
awarded a contract for a H₂-powered train in 2019 to Stadler
run by 2024
. I thought southern California was densely populated - why not electrify the tracks? Fuel cells are better than dirty and loud diesel locomotives, I suppose. This is the
first H₂ fuel cell train in the US
, and many other places in the US are quite sparsely populated, so let's hope it is followed by more.
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration is to operate the world's first H₂-powered ferry connecting its fjords. The ship is built by
Norled and has a carrying capacity 299 passengers and 80 cars
. Details on its power train have not been forthcoming.
A river vessel on the Rhone river with a powertrain built by ABB
, supported by the European Commission's Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) and in cooperation with other parties.
first H₂-powered ferry in the US has started serving San Franscisco Bay
. It takes 75 passengers, has three fuel cell stacks, and a top speed of 20 knots. The project was
awarded a $3 million grant by the California Air Resources Board
. For reference, there are about 1000 passenger ferrys operating in the United States.
The world's first LH2 carrier has been put into service ferrying grey H₂ (meaning H₂ produced from fossil sources) from Australia to markets in Japan.
The vessel was built by Kawasaki Heavy Industries and comes equipped with a tank able to hold 1250 m³ of liquified H₂ at a temperature of -253℃ (20 K)
