Ballard announces largest order in company history: 1,000 fuel cell engines for Solaris

Ballard Power Systems has signed a Long Term Supply Agreement (LTSA) with its customer Solaris Bus & Coach for the supply of 1,000 hydrogen fuel cell engines through 2027 for the European transit bus market.

The LTSA consolidates existing orders for approximately 300 fuel cell engines, while adding after-market and extended warranty services to such existing orders, with a new supply commitment for an incremental approximately 700 fuel cell engines and related after-market extended warranty services.

This consolidated order represents the largest order of fuel cell engines in Ballard’s history and marks a significant step forward in the relationship with Solaris. The 1,000 units will be made up of approximately 80% FCmove-HD 70 kW and 20% FCmove-HD+ 100 kW engines to address both the 12-meter and 18-meter bus markets, with delivery starting in 2024 and running through the end of 2027.

These engines are expected to be deployed in buses across Europe where Solaris buses powered by Ballard fuel cell engines currently operate in more than 22 European cities. Supported by policy tailwinds and regulations to decarbonize public urban transport fleets, the transition to zero emission city buses has accelerated in recent years as the value proposition of hydrogen fuel cells are increasingly understood: zero emissions, quick refueling, and long range, without impact to performance or duty cycle.
