A total of 20 new hydrogen-fuelled double-decker buses will soon hit the streets of London, as part of the capital’s commitment to becoming a carbon-neutral city by 2050.

The logistics services company Suttons Tankers has won a three-year contract with the hydrogen production and refuelling company Ryse Hydrogen to transport bulk hydrogen gas from the North West to the capital for Transport for London (TfL).

Michael Cundy, Managing Director of Suttons Tankers, said: “We are thrilled to be awarded this contract with Ryse Hydrogen which represents a significant move in TfL’s pledge to offer more sustainable modes of transport. This will demonstrate to the wider public transport sector the practical and environmental benefits of hydrogen-fuelled technology.”

Jo Bamford, Chief Executive of Ryse Hydrogen, commented: “We look forward to working with Suttons on this contract and are proud to be supporting the capital in its efforts to reduce its emissions.”

The partners say the contract will go live at the end of September with a phased transport solution leading to a day and night time operation once the capital’s fleet is fully operational.
