Hexagon Purus to supply hydrogen cylinders for next-gen fuel cell electric transit bus

Hexagon Purus will provide its hydrogen storage cylinders for New Flyer’s zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric transit bus.

Hexagon Purus has been selected as a supplier of hydrogen cylinders for the fourth year in a row by New Flyer, a subsidiary of NFI Group (NFI). Hexagon Purus said it will continue to provide its Type 4 hydrogen storage cylinders for New Flyer’s next generation, zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric transit bus, the Xcelsior Charge FC, which enables a driving range of 370+ miles on a single refueling. The total value of this contract is estimated to be approximately $4 million.

Production of the Type 4 hydrogen storage cylinders will be out of Hexagon Purus’ facility in Westminster, Maryland. Since 2020, Hexagon Purus said it has delivered hydrogen cylinders for well over 100 New Flyer hydrogen fuel cell electric transit buses.

The cylinders will be delivered throughout 2024, Hexagon Purus said.
