High V.LO-City: New EU Fuel Cell Bus Project Launches
28 Mar 2012
A new five year fuel cell bus project has launched with a budget of €31.5 million, co-financed by the FCH JU. The project, High V.LO-City, sees three European regions each deploying five fuel cell hybrid buses into daily service under the differing environmental and route conditions found in each region, below:
The project was inaugurated on the 23rd March by the president of the Provincia di Imperia, Luigi Sappa, who indicated how projects such as High V.LO-City demonstrate public transport authorities of all sizes beginning to recognise fuel cell technology as a mature technology for use in buses. Fuel Cell Today reported in January that Aberdeen City Council was backing a major hydrogen transport project.
