CaetanoBus has signed a contract with municipal transport company EMT Tarragona for the supply of three hydrogen-powered H2.City Gold buses.
Caetano launched the vehicle in 2020 and now has more than 80 units already sold and in operation in various European cities. The vehicle is the result of a partnership between Toyota and Caetano, which was the first company in Europe to use the Japanese manufacturer’s fuel cell technology.
The H2.City Gold is equipped with a Toyota fuel cell with a nominal power of 60kW, an LTO battery with a capacity of 44kWh from French supplier Forsee Power and a Siemens powertrain with a peak power of 180kW.
Jordi Fortuny, EMT president, says: “The municipal company is preparing new tenders for hydrogen buses for the coming months. This is the beginning of a change to achieve the desired goal: zero emissions of CO2. We are putting all efforts to make more sustainable mobility possible.”
Nuno Lago de Carvalho, chief commercial officer, CaetanoBus, adds: “Spain is a key market for CaetanoBus and we are very glad to supply three more units of our H2.City Gold to Tarragona. Our company has been working on sustainable mobility solutions for the cities and it is a pleasure to ensure a better quality of life in another one. The H2.City Gold is a reliable and tested bus, that will make a difference in the fleet.”
