Olectra Greentech to Launch Hydrogen Powered Buses in India.

Olectra will deploy Hydrogen buses with a range of 400 km and a seating capacity ranging from 32 to 49 within a year.

In a major development in the Indian transport sector, Olectra Greentech Limited, a subsidiary of Megha Engineering and Infrastructures Ltd (MEIL), has announced that it will launch its Hydrogen Bus, in technical partnership with Reliance.

The Hydrogen Bus, a 12-metre low-floor bus, is designed to offer a sustainable and eco-friendly mode of transport to the Indian public. It is equipped with a customisable seating capacity ranging from 32 to 49 seats for passengers, in addition to one driver seat. The bus is powered by hydrogen fuel cells, which generate electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen to produce water vapor and heat, emitting only water vapor as exhaust.

A single hydrogen fill allows the bus to travel up to 400 km, and it takes just about 15 minutes to refill. This impressive range and short refueling time make the Hydrogen Bus a practical option for long-distance travel. Olectra has announced plans to launch the Hydrogen Bus commercially within a year, providing a promising new option for sustainable public transportation in India.

Olectra will use the Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine technology that Reliance unveiled at the India Energy Week in Bangalore.

The Hydrogen Bus is a fully carbon-free alternative to traditional public transportation, and Olectra’s innovative approach is expected to contribute to the Indian government’s ambitious plans for a carbon-free future. OGL’s commitment to the development of hydrogen-powered buses is a significant step towards achieving the nation’s environmentally sustainable energy security goals.
