Ten more hydrogen buses planned for the Netherlands

Ballard Power Systems’ fuel cell modules will power another ten Van Hool A330 model fuel cell electric buses in Emmen, the Netherlands, as part of the JIVE2 funding programme.

The Vancouver-based company today (17th Dec) said it will deliver the modules in 2021. The buses are planned for deployment in 2022, with the Groningen-Drenthe and Qbuzz, Emmen’s public transport agency.
