Ballard Power Systems (BLDP) announced a purchase order from repeat customer Solaris Bus & Coach sp. z o.o. (“Solaris”; www.solarisbus.com), a leading European bus manufacturer, for 25 hydrogen fuel cell engines.

The 70kW fuel cells will be installed in Solaris’ Urbino 12 hydrogen buses for deployment to Polish public transport operator MPK Poznan and are expected to be delivered in the second half of 2023.

The buses are to be partially funded by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management’s Green Public Transport program. MPK Poznan requires 30% of its fleet to be zero-emission by 2028. These 25 hydrogen fuel cell buses will increase its zero-emission fleet from 18% to 25%.

“Poznan is investing in clean technologies, in innovation, and in the future. This huge order puts the carrier among the most modern public transport operators in Europe, those that are focused first and foremost on clean air in cities and improving the quality of life for the next generation of their residents. The hydrogen Urbino 12 hydrogen emits only water vapor. Soon, the advantages and comfort of traveling by hydrogen Solaris will be available to Poznan residents,” Javier Calleja said during the signing of the contract.

“We are excited for the opportunity to continue to support Solaris in providing zero-emission hydrogen solutions for its customers,” said David Mucciacciaro, Ballard Chief Commercial Officer. “We are seeing increased demand for hydrogen fuel cell buses in Europe, expanding across central and eastern Europe, and look forward to continued collaboration with Solaris to meet this growing demand.”
