Indian Army to utilise hydrogen-powered bus

IndianOil has supplied a hydrogen-powered fuel cell bus to the Indian Army after a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between the two organisations.

The move has been made to pioneer the deployment of hydrogen fuel cell technology for heavy-duty mobility. Under the MOU, the performance of fuel cell electric buses for public transit will be assessed in the Delhi-NCR region.

The Indian Army and IndianOil will analyse the impact of local fuel and air quality on the performance of the fuel cell system and vehicles, along with the effectiveness, longevity and operational reliability of fuel cell buses for public use.
