Ryse Hydrogen-Suttons Tankers partnership to supply hydrogen to Transport for London

A significant step has been made in fuelling hydrogen buses on the streets of the UK with Ryse Hydrogen signing a three-year contract with Suttons Tankers to transport bulk hydrogen gas to different locations in the UK, starting with London.

Suttons will move the hydrogen, produced by Ryse Hydrogen in Runcorn, to the capital where Transport for London (TfL) will be operating 20 hydrogen-powered double-decker buses later this year.

The contract will be going live at the end of September with a phased transport solution leading to a day and night time operation once the capital’s fleet is fully operational.
