HyTransit (2012-2018)

HyTransit funds 6 hydrogen buses in the citie of Aberdeen. The Aberdeen Hydrogen Bus Project is made up of two separate European funded projects, High Vlo City, which funds 4 buses and HyTransit which funds 6 buses, both of which are supported by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU).

The project, which has backing from public and private sector organisations from the UK and Europe, delivered a hydrogen infrastructure in Aberdeen, including:

  • Production of hydrogen from a 1MW electrolyser - supplied by Hydrogenics
  • Establishing a state-of-the-art hydrogen refuelling station, Scotland's first commercial-scale hydrogen production and bus refuelling station that will include hydrogen production through electrolysis
  • Deployment of a fleet of 10 hydrogen buses, to be operated by First Group and Stagecoach.
  • The development of a hydrogen safe maintenance facility, within an operational fleet maintenance depot
