Fuel Cell Buses in the Netherlands
Hydrogen infrastructure for 24 FCEB’s
– including service and Hydrogen supply for a minimum 12 year contract. Fueling station and offtake in the Netherlands for initial 24 buses
The Provincie of Zuid Holland has a clear ambition towards Zero Emission Transport. Among first steps the Provincie initiated implementation of Fuel Cell Electric Buses. A first small fleet of 4 buses is to be followed by additional 20 FCEB’s from end 2021. Everfuel is the chosen supplier and will establish the refueling station in Heinenoord NL. The station can handle +50 buses in redundant set-up and the facility can also be expanded to accommodate fueling of other vehicles such as FC Trucks, Taxis and other LD FCEV’s. Everfuel will service and maintain the station as well as secure supply of Green Hydrogen for a minimum duration of 12 years. The FCEB’s in Heinenoord are operated by Public Transport Operator Connexxion, who is the leading ZE operator in NL and a global player within public transport. The Station is hopefully the first of many Everfuel station in the Netherlands.
