Transdev Netherlands have broken ground on a new hydrogen fuelling station set to become one of the largest in Europe.
From 2022, passengers in the Hoeksche Waard-Goeree-Overflake region will be able to board one of twenty new hydrogen powered buses deployed by Transdev subsidiary, Connexxion.
Once construction is complete, Connexxion will be able to introduce a further 16 hydrogen buses, adding to 4 which began operating in June 2020.
The construction of the hydrogen fuelling station is part of an ambition to have all public transport in South Holland free of any harmful emissions by 2030, to better protect the health of passengers and residents.
When complete green hydrogen will be supplied to the fuelling station by emission-free trucks ensuring the operation is truly sustainable.
Transdev is a global leader in zero emissions transport, with the world’s largest fleet of zero emission buses.
Closer to home Transdev is currently trialling hydrogen technology in partnership with Auckland Transport, and will soon start a hydrogen bus trial in Wellington.
