Aberdeen leads way in Hydrogen-based transport



Aberdeen’s second hydrogen refuelling station opened on Tuesday. The city now has a station in the north and in the south of the city which can now refuel buses, vans and cars despite the differing pressure required for each.

Aberdeen already has Europe’s largest hydrogen bus fleet with 20 vehicles.

    Fantastic news John, thanks for doing the nomedia’s job for them. Makes me wonder now at the debate I’m having about replacing my deisel car with the supposedly less poluting petrol engine, I wonder if there are any hydrogen cars being built?

    Keep up the good work, very much appreciated.

      Petrol cars can run on Hydrogen with minimal modification.

      Thought we might go electric two years ago but still not cheap enough for me. Maybe next time in 2 or 3 years.? Hyundai have a hydrogen SUV coming.
