Ballard Power Systems signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Tata Motors (India) for 12 FCvelocity-1100 fuel cell stacks. These stacks are expected to power zero-emission buses planned for demonstration in various Indian cities. Delivery to Tata Motors is planned for 2012 and 2013, in-line with Tata’s plans.
Tata Motors, one of the world’s largest bus OEMs, displayed the first fuel cell bus built in India at Auto Expo 2012 in New Delhi earlier this month. The bus is powered with a Ballard FCvelocity-1100 fuel cell stack, previously delivered to Tata Motors in 2011.
Ballard FCvelocity-1100 fuel cell stacks are based on a design suited for use in heavy duty vehicles.
