High V.LO City: Antwerp, Belgium

The High V.LO City program includes deployment of 14 buses in three European countries: Italy, Belgium and Scotland. The program aims to create a network of successful fuel cell bus operation sites, so called Clean Hydrogen Bus Centres of Excellence (CHBCE), linking High V.LO City sites with similar fuel cell bus demonstrations in Europe. 5 buses will be demonstrated in the northern region of Antwerp, Belgium. The project kicked-off in 2012.
