Trillium Transportation Fuels, LLC has ordered a 1 megawatt containerized Proton PEM electrolyzer from Nel Hydrogen US, a subsidiary of Nel ASA. The electrolyzer will be used to produce hydrogen for a fleet of fuel cell electric buses in Urbana, Illinois.
Trillium will produce green hydrogen for a fleet of up to 12 fuel cell electric buses at the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (MTD).
The contract for equipment and associated services has a value of approximately US$2.2 million, and the electrolyzer will be delivered late 2020. The project is supported by the Federal Transit Administration and the State of Illinois.
