PowerTap eyes heavy-duty transport for hydrogen station network

With a goal of building a 500+ hydrogen station network in the US, PowerTap Hydrogen Fueling Corp today said it’s looking to expand its stations to buses and trains.

The company said it’s in talks with various cities, states and provinces to deploy its third-generation onsite hydrogen production unit for commercial buses and trains, in addition to fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and trucks.
