Hydrogen bus stops at Baxi

The world’s first hydrogen-powered double decker bus has stopped off at Baxi’s factory in Bamber Bridge on its way to COP26 in Glasgow.

The Wrightbus StreetDeck Hydroliner visited Baxi at the midway point on its journey from London to 26th UN Climate Change Conference to show world leaders how green public transport can be.

The Hydroliner will go on to visit other companies working on hydrogen-related solutions on its journey. The 100 per cent green vehicle takes just eight minutes to refuel, has a range of up to 250 miles and can carry 86 passengers.

Wrightbus and Ryze CEO Buta Atwal says: “This tour is really highlighting the fantastic innovation happening up and down the country at firms such as Baxi as we move towards a zero-carbon future – and is highlighting the collaborations needed to make this a reality.”

Wrightbus is based in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, and plans to roll out 3,000 hydrogen-powered buses by year 2024.
