Ballard technology will power 20 new hydrogen buses ordered by public transport operate Connexxion for deployment in South Holland.

A branch of the Transdev Netherlands group, Connexxion has ordered 20 Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen buses from Solaris Bus & Coach in a bid to ensure cleaner air in the province.
