Loop Energy records > 75k km of operation for fuel cell municipal bus fleet in Nanjing, China after 45 days
29 June 2021
Loop Energy, a developer and manufacturer of hydrogen fuel cell-based solutions, reports that the pilot transit bus fleet of Skywell New Energy Vehicles Group (Skywell) in Nanjing, China has now been fully operational for 45 days and has already accumulated 75,000 kilometers of in-service operations.
Loop Energy announced in April the fulfillment of a ten-unit order of the company’s proprietary eFlow fuel cell modules from Beijing IN-Power for integration by Skywell. This marked the second phase milestone of a memorandum of understanding between the Lishui Economic Development Zone of Nanjing and Beijing IN-Power—Loop Energy’s China-based joint venture partner supplying the fuel cell engines.
As we progress toward large-scale commercial deployment of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in China, these impressive operational results demonstrate Skywell’s expertise, Loop’s product maturity, and the market’s accelerating adoption of hydrogen fuel cell technology. We are very pleased to see the strong results of our eFlow technology on the road, which continues to validate Loop’s unique value proposition of greater fuel efficiency, higher power, and extended range.—Ben Nyland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Loop Energy
