Ballard Power receives LOI for 40 fuel cell engines to power Van Hool buses.
Ballard Power Systems announced it has received a Letter of Intent from Van Hool NV, a bus OEM partner in Belgium, for 40 FCveloCity-HD fuel cell engines to power buses under the Joint Initiative For Hydrogen Vehicles Across Europe funding program. These buses are expected to be the first fuel cell bus deployments supported under JIVE I. The 40 buses will be powered by Ballard FCveloCity-HD 85 kilowatt fuel cell engines, which Ballard expects to receive a purchase order for and to begin shipping in the second half of 2018. Van Hool plans to deploy 30 of these buses with the Regionalverkehr Koln GmbH transit agency in the city of Cologne, Germany, and plans to deploy the remaining 10 buses with WSW mobil GmbH transit agency in Wuppertal, Germany, with deliveries expected to begin in 2019.
