NFI Subsidiary ADL's New British-Built H2.0 Double-Deck Hydrogen Bus to Deliver Up to 300 Zero-Emission Mile Range

Canada NewsWire

LARBERT, Scotland, Feb. 25, 2021

LARBERT, Scotland, Feb. 25, 2021 /CNW/ - (TSX: NFI) Alexander Dennis Limited ("ADL"), a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc. ("NFI"), one of the world's leading independent global bus manufacturers, today announced that its next generation double deck hydrogen bus ("H2.0") will deliver a zero-emission range of up to 300 miles. H2.0 will be powered by a Ballard fuel cell power module through the efficient Voith Electrical Drive System (VEDS).

Designed and fully built in Britain, H2.0 is ADL's second-generation hydrogen platform, incorporating learnings from nationwide trials and more than 25 years of hydrogen experience of New Flyer, another NFI Group subsidiary, to set new standards for range and efficiency. The H2.0 is expected to be on the road before the end of the year. It supports the development of skills in the growing clean vehicle technology sector and boosts the UK hydrogen economy. In addition, it will also assist in delivering governments' net-zero targets through the carbon-neutral electrification of high-mileage bus routes.

Integrating with a class-leading Ballard fuel cell power module, H2.0 continues ADL's philosophy of working with only the best in the field. Specified to just the right power output, the fuel cells minimise fuel consumption and maximise performance for lowest total cost of ownership. With fewer higher volume tanks, H2.0 reduces maintenance effort while increasing fuel capacity to deliver increased zero-emission range.

H2.0 uses the latest technology in the form of the Voith Electrical Drive System. This boosts energy regeneration during the braking phase and delivers increased efficiency that is further enhanced by advanced thermal management which uses excess heat from the fuel cells and driveline to heat the saloon, minimising additional power requirement.

ADL President & Managing Director, Paul Davies said, "H2.0 is going to be a milestone for zero-emission technology, with unrivalled efficiency that gives a class-leading range, perfect for high-mileage routes that battery technology alone doesn't cover. Designed and built in Britain, our next generation hydrogen bus will retain investment in our economy and boost skills in clean vehicle technology, a crucial sector for future development as the United Kingdom targets net zero by 2050."

NFI Group is a leader and innovator in zero-emission mobility. The Company's battery-electric and fuel-cell electric vehicles are in more than 80 cities in four countries and have completed over 20 million electric service miles.
