Hyundai joins (HyTEC) consortium as project expands


The Hydrogen Transport in European Cities (HyTEC) consortium has announced that it will create a third hydrogen passenger vehicle deployment centre in Oslo, Norway, with Hyundai Motor Europe becoming a new partner to the project.

Hyundai Motor will deliver eight of its flagship hydrogen fuel cell electric passenger vehicles – the ix35 Fuel Cell – to Oslo during 2015, where they will make use of the hydrogen fuelling network in the city.

The vehicles will complement the consortium’s activities in Copenhagen (Denmark) and London (UK), where fuelling stations and fleets of passenger cars and taxis have been deployed to demonstrate the viability of hydrogen technology as a low carbon transport solution.

Under the project, which is part-funded by the European Commission’s Fuel Cell Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, the consortium will continue to gather operational data from these fleets and stations. This data is being disseminated to other European cities interested in implementing hydrogen transport for urban mobility.
