HONG KONG: Hong Kong launched its first-ever double-decker hydrogen bus on Thursday (Nov 30), marking yet another significant step towards the city’s 2050 net-zero goal.
Chief Executive John Lee officiated the launching ceremony of the hydrogen bus and a refuelling station at Citybus West Kowloon Depot in Sham Shui Po.
Expected to be in service as early as next January, the hydrogen bus produces only water during its energy transformation process, according to its operator, Citybus.
The prototype can be refuelled in merely 10 minutes, the company said, adding that the production model will double the hydrogen storage capacity, enabling a 400km range. - China Daily/ANN
