World first for Aberdeen, Scotland as city orders 15 double decker hydrogen electric buses



18/7/2019 The Press and Journal

The city already operates single- decker vehicles, fuelled by the emerging technology, which proponents say is cleaner than traditional fossil fuels.

A new contract was signed this month to deliver 15 city buses with the project funded by Aberdeen City Council, European Union (FCH JU) and the Scottish Government with an investment of about half a million pounds per vehicle.

The vehicles will be operated by First on the 19 (Culter to Tillydrone) route.

Cities that will follow in Aberdeen’s footsteps include London and Birmingham, with Dundee and Brighton and Hove being lead partners in the project.

Launching later this year, the buses are more efficient than electric equivalents, with refuelling taking less than 10 minutes and offering a greater range.

The buses have been produced by a UK-based company – Wrightbus based in Northern Ireland – and will complement the existing fleet in the city of 10 buses as well as a range of vans and cars.

Council hydrogen spokesman Philip Bell said: “Aberdeen appears to be pushing boundaries with an innovative approach when it comes to hydrogen and the entrepreneurial and technological leadership puts Aberdeen on the global map.... more: https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/aberdeen/1799344/world-first-for-aberdeen-as-city-orders-15-double-decker-hydrogen-buses/

1. Geeze don't the pensioners who ride the bus

have enough worries without adding a wheeled Hindenburg into it?

fortunately i guess for no reason at all, hydrogen is magically appearing without forced energy from fossil fuels

5. "for no reason at all, hydrogen is magically appearing without forced energy from fossil fuels"

you "guess" eh?

Take another "guess"?

Why not, doesn't cost you anything

Keep "guessing" - it's a great substitute for actually learning about renewable energy and how to store it

WTF Happened to what we used to call "THINKING"????

What a wasteland.

6. WOW

You're RIGHT!

They probably haven't thought about that....

(H2 needs 02 to ignite, but Hydrogen Scholars here on DI already know that of course, and a whole lot more)



Here's why hydrogen-fueled cars (and buses) aren't little Hindenburgs
