UTC Power, which has been operating a hydrogen fuel cell in Connecticut for about a month, has brought the European country of Belgium its first fuel cell bus, in partnership with bus manufacturer Van Hool. The bus is a 43-foot hybrid electric transit bus that can carry over 100 passengers. It has a UTC Power fuel cell system and will go into service in early June, first for six months in Belgium and then other European countries. UTC has similar buses operating in Oakland and Palm Springs, California.
UTC Power president Jan van Dokkum said in a release that the bus is being given to Belgium for the half-year trial period. "There is growing momentum worldwide for cleaner transit solutions, and we believe this 'try-before-you- buy' arrangement will only help accelerate that momentum," he said.
