HFC Bus Council launches; KBR to conduct engineering services for H2OK Project

HFC Bus Council aims to scale hydrogen fuel cell technology.

NFI Group Inc. has announced that the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus Council has formally launched, of which NFI is a founding member.

The newly formed Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus Council aims to promote and advance the deployment of hydrogen fuel cell electric buses

The HFC Bus Council is a first-of-its-kind national coalition of public transit agencies, manufacturers, and suppliers working together to advance the US hydrogen fuel cell-electric bus economy and its applications in public transit. The council’s mission is to educate policymakers, regulators, and transportation stakeholders on the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell electric buses and related infrastructure.

Paul Soubry, President and CEO of NFI, said, “Fuel cell technology is a proven path to extended-range zero-emission mobility, and we are on the cusp accelerating its deployment and delivering immediate greenhouse gas reduction, cleaner air, and quiet transportation.”

In addition to NFI, other founding members include:

  • Ballard
  • ENC
  • Foothill Transit
  • Hexagon Purus
  • Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation (IndyGo)
  • Intercity Transit
  • Interurban Transit Partnership (The Rapid)
  • Ivys Energy Solutions
  • MTD
  • Nel Hydrogen
  • Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada
  • Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County
  • Sangamon Mass Transit District
  • Stark Area Regional Transit Authority
  • SunLine Transit Agency
  • Trillium Energy Solutions
  • Utah Transit Authority

KBR and Woodside Energy’s H2OK Project

Woodside Energy (USA) Inc. has awarded KBR an engineering services contract for its proposed H2OK liquid hydrogen production facility project in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Under the contract terms, KBR will provide a front-end engineering design for Woodside’s H2OK liquid hydrogen facility. Cryogenic liquid hydrogen is used in the transportation industry as a fuel for fleets where the combustion of liquid hydrogen produces zero emissions.
