Buy America Fuel Cell Bus

Ballard Power Systems has signed a supply agreement with the US Center for Transportation and the Environment for the integration of a 150 kW FCvelocity-HD6 fuel cell module into a bus for deployment with CTTransit in Hartford, Connecticut in 2015.

The new hybrid bus will be built in the same ‘Buy America’ all-American configuration that was jointly developed by Ballard, BAE Systems and ElDorado National and that is currently exemplified in a SunLine Transit bus delivered in late 2011. The same configuration will be used for two more SunLine Transit buses and one bus to be deployed in Boston, Massachusetts. All are to be delivered by 2015, bringing the total number of ‘Buy America’ fuel cell buses by that time to five.
