Chinese hydrogen bus fleet a success; records over 75,000 kilometres of operation

A pilot transit hydrogen-powered bus fleet operating in Nanjing, China has accumulated 75,000 kilometres of in-service operations in just 45 days.

Powered by Loop Energy’s eFlow® fuel cell modules, the Skywell New Energy Vehicles Group’s fleet marks an important step in decarbonising China’s transportation sector.

Loop Energy announced in April the fulfillment of a ten-unit order of the company’s proprietary eFlow® fuel cell modules from Beijing IN-Power for integration by Skywell.

“We are very pleased to see the strong results of our eFlow technology on the road, which continues to validate Loop’s unique value proposition of greater fuel efficiency, higher power, and extended range.”

Ms. Zou Ran (Joanna), Director of External Affairs & Brand of Skywell New Energy Vehicles Group, added, “The Loop fuel cell systems are performing very well, and we are impressed with the quality of the product.

“The support of the IN-Power and Loop teams has been critical in achieving the rapid deployment of this pilot fleet and represents a major step towards reaching the objective of implementing similar fuel cell solutions across a wide range of our specialty and commercial vehicles.”

Loop Energy today (June 28) announced the news ahead of its upcoming Investor Day.
