Four Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid Buses Begin Service in Hamburg29 Aug
Hamburg transit agency Hamburger Hochbahn AG has acquired four Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid buses under the German NaBuz demo scheme; with a further three buses to be delivered next year.
NaBuz demo is a subsidiary project of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP), funded by NOW GmbH’s National Innovation Programme (NIP) and closely linked to the wider Clean Hydrogen In European Cities (CHIC) fuel cell bus project. Hamburg is a phase 0 city in the CHIC project.
The Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid features battery hybridisation for energy recovery and storage and a continuous power output of 120 kW delivered by the same fuel cell stacks used in the company’s flagship fuel cell vehicle, the B-Class FCELL, which has also been trialled in Hamburg.
