Announced today (June 6), Loop Energy’s T600 60kW module will be integrated into Aluminium Revolutionary Chassis Company’s (ARCC) Viking Hydrologht city bus.
Loop Energy’s module uses its eFlow™ technology, which the company claims will increase fuel efficiency, combined with ARCC’s lightweight bus body, it is hoped fuel consumption will be reduced.
The trial, launched by the NSW Government, will take place on the Central Coast later this year, as the state strives to reach its hydrogen strategy goals.
Peter Murley, Managing Director of ARCC, said, “ARCC is proud to manufacture the only zero-emissions bus designed with a full-length aluminium chassis in Australia,”
“We are excited to have Loop Energy’s eFlow™ technology play an important role in powering the Viking Hydrolight bus.”
In March (2022), Loop Energy launched an eight-metre hydrogen-electric minibus in Slovakia, to showcase the potential of hydrogen in the mobility sector.
George Robin, Chief Commercial Officer at Loop Energy, said, “The electric bus market is quickly emerging as an important market segment for fuel cells. We are very proud that we have continued to grow our footprint in this sector in Europe, China, Asia and now in Australia.
“We view the partnership with ARCC as a positive step to continuing our inroads into the electric bus market and supporting the development of next-generation bus platforms globally.”
