Hydrogen Double-Decker Buses Arrive in Europe’s Top Oil City

Aberdeen have taken delivery of 15 hydrogen double-decker buses made by Wrightbus Ltd., a Northern Irish firm bought by Jo Bamford, the son of JCB chairman Anthony Bamford.  The deliveries will give Aberdeen one of the world’s biggest fleets of hydrogen buses.

Britain wants to be at the forefront of the hydrogen industry, and the government says it will outline its strategy for the sector next year as well as present a plan to create a hydrogen transport hub.  The fuel is seen as key to slashing harmful emissions in everything from industry to transport and heating homes.
