Loop Energy to provide technology for transit buses in China

Loop Energy will provide fuel cell technology to a leading bus manufacturer in China as part of a new $15m deal to support the Nanjing municipal government’s objective of replacing its fleet with hydrogen buses.

Nanjing municipal government wants to replace its existing 7,000-unit battery-electric bus fleet with an improved battery-hydrogen hybrid alternative that offers all-season, long-range and higher passenger-capacity operation.

The multiple-unit range extender order, which represents the start of a long-term commercial agreement over a three-year period, follows the receipt of product certification for Loop’s 50kW Fuel Cell Range Extender Module series from the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC), a national independent testing and certification organisation for vehicular products in China.
