The hydrogen storage cylinders will be incorporated into hydrogen fuel cell double decker buses that will be coming to Hong Kong in the near future.
Bravo Transport aims to provide a decarbonised basis for public transportation giving the 1 million passenger trips each day in the region ample options to reduce their carbon footprint.
The initial scope of the MoU is for CIMC-HEXAGON to provide a Type 4 hydrogen storage cylinder system for the first fuel-cell double decker bus in Hong Kong with scheduled delivery in July 2022.
In parallel, and subject to relevant approval from local authorities, Bravo and CIMC-HEXAGON will work together to develop more fuel-cell double decker buses for trial in Hong Kong.
Urs Laeuppi, CEO of Hexagon Purus China & Southeast Asia and CIMC-Hexagon Hydrogen Energy Technologies, said, “The agreement with Bravo to develop hydrogen fuel systems represents an important milestone for CIMC-HEXAGON and confirms our globally leading position as supplier of Type 4 hydrogen storage cylinder systems for transit buses.
“We see an increasing demand for hydrogen fuel-cell transit buses in Asia, and we are excited to collaborate with Bravo to support the rollout of zero-emission transit double decker buses in Hong Kong.”
Beverly Yang, General Manager of CIMC Hydrogen & Deputy General Manager of CIMC Enric, said, “Large fleet customers require solutions from the distribution and filling systems for hydrogen to safe, efficient and economic storage of this emission-free fuel for on road vehicles, trains and marine vessels.
“Our JV CIMC-Hexagon in cooperation with CIMC Hydrogen are in the unique position to provide the full solution.”
