C-ALPS to support €7m hydrogen coach project

The Centre for Advance Low Carbon Propulsion Systems (C-ALPS) technology will help support a €7m ($8.47m) hydrogen-powered mass passenger coaches project ‘CoacHyfied’ it has been revealed today (June 4).

The ‘CoacHyfied’ project, consisting of 14 higher education and engineering partners will develop a new technology that could help eliminate up to 1.4 million tonnes of carbon emissions generated by diesel-fuelled coaches in the UK.

The project will aim to present solutions for challenges in the medium range regional and long-distance public and commercial transport sector by developing and operating six fuel cell coaches at two regions in Latvia and France in two to three-year demo phases.

Two types of hydrogen-powered coaches will be investigated; one will be dedicated to OEM-based fuel cell coaches whereas the other will consist of retrofitting existing coaches in order to provide answers for a second life use of outdated coach chassis.
