Ballard receives order to power fuel cell buses in the Netherlands

Ballard Power Systems has received a purchase order from Van Hool for 20 FCveloCity®-HD 85-kilowatt fuel cell modules to power buses in Groningen, the Netherlands, under the JIVE2 funding programme.

The fuel cell modules from Ballard will power 20 Van Hool A330 model fuel cell electric buses that are planned for deployment with Qbuzz, the transit agency for the city of Groningen, by the end of next year.

“We are delighted to provide fuel cell power modules to Van Hool, a long-standing Ballard partner in Europe, as an important sign of continued progress in the deployment of zero emission buses under the JIVE2 programme,” said Rob Campbell, Ballard’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“These new fuel cell electric buses for Groningen represent another vote of confidence in Ballard’s fuel cell technology and products. This is a follow-on order for modules, after the deployment of two Ballard-powered Van Hool buses with Qbuzz in 2017.”
