Hydrogen buses trial in Neath Port Talbot and Swansea

The project utilises locally produced ‘green hydrogen’ to provide more sustainable transport options for the communities

Bus operator South Wales Transport and private hire operator Hyppo Hydrogen Solutions have initiated a trial of hydrogen buses in Neath Port Talbot and Swansea.

The buses use locally produced ‘green hydrogen‘ derived from renewable energy and local water sources.

The project, driven by a private sector consortium, aims to provide sustainable transport services.

Caetano Bus UK is supplying the hydrogen-fueled H2 City Gold electric bus, while Fuel Cell Systems is providing the HyQube refueller.

The hydrogen fuel used in the trial is produced and supplied by Protium, a green hydrogen developer, from its recently commissioned installation at the University of South Wales Hydrogen Centre located in the Baglan Energy Park.
