Fuel cell hydrogen buses offer longer vehicle range over battery powered alternatives
Hydrogen offers higher energy density compared to electrical storage systems such as batteries, this enables a longer vehicle range. Refuelling of a hydrogen bus typically takes around 10 to 15 minutes, offering a fast refill.
The fuel cell electric bus is an all electric zero emission solution that offers an operation close to that of a diesel bus and hence is marketed as the closest like for like zero emission option to replace diesel.
A fuel cell bus does not require any additional city infrastructure work or permits other than a centralized hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) at the bus depot.
The Pioneer Hydrogen Refuelling Solution
The Pioneer 145 is the ideal solution for small fleets of hydrogen buses. Pioneer 145 can service up to 10 buses. Individual bus refill times are similar to fixed HRS with the added benefit of no delay between vehicles.
- Combined storage, distribution and dispensing solution
- Low cost - capital cost significantly lower than a fixed HRS
- Reliable - mobile nature enables units to back each other up,
resulting in a more reliable hydrogen refuelling network.
- Mobile - rapid deployment, no fixed utilities
- Easily scalable
