Tata Motors in collaboration with Indian Oil Corporation has flagged off trials of India’s very first Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus. IndianOil R&D is celebrating its 47th foundation day, marked by the beginning of the hydrogen fuel cell bus’ testing in the real world. The project has partial financial support from the Department of Science & Industrial Research, Ministry for Science & Technology and the Ministry for New and Renewable Energy. Another landmark for the hydrogen fuel cell tech is the fact that the bus was fuelled at the country’s first hydrogen dispensing facility at R&D Centre of IndianOil.
Tata Motors and IndianOil will carry out prolonged testing of the hydrogen fuel cell bus in order to better understand the efficiency and durability of the new and clean mobility solution in the long run.
Such projects reflect positively on the Indian government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative with Tata Motors being on the forefront of introducing clean vehicles for mass transportation. While we’ve seen luxury buses from Volvo and Mercedes-Benz, Tata Motors’ new buses also offer a promise for a clean environment. Buses that run on hydrogen fuel cell tech are already in use in many countries. Over 100 fuel cell buses are a part of London’s transport system. Read More…
