Energy storage company Hydrogenics Corporation, along with Beijing SinoHytec Co, Ltd, hosted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he visited Beijing to promote trade and tourism between Canada and China.
Treudeau was greeted by Daryl Wilson, President and CEO of Hydrogenics, and Zhang Guoqiang, Chairman of SinoHytec, as he visited a Foton bus utilising a fuel cell system co-developed by the two companies.
SinoHytec and its partners, including Foton, are promoting a fleet of 150 fuel cell buses in Zhangjiakou, where China will be hosting the 2022 Winter Olympic Games. The completion and delivery of this fleet is expected in early 2018. Trudeau had the opportunity to learn more about how Hydrogenics and SinoHytec are working together to jointly address climate change by reducing the carbon footprint related to transportation in China.
“Hydrogenics has the leading technology for providing zero-emission transit solutions to the public. We are currently completing the largest operating hydrogen fuel cell bus fleet on the planet, and we look forward to a very successful and long-term collaboration with Hydrogenics,” explained Zhang.
Wilson added, “It is a great honour to meet with Prime Minister Trudeau and have the opportunity to showcase our fuel cell technology. The partnership between Hydrogenics and SinoHytec is an excellent example of Canadian and Chinese companies working together to bring clean energy transportation to China.”
