Giantleap’s key deliverable, the hydrogen-fuelled range extender for battery buses, has recently been assembled at VDL’s workshop in the Netherlands.
The first tests and demonstration are expected in the first week of July, with the support of Bosch Engineering and ElringKlinger.
The Giantleap project organised last week a booth at the Hanover Fair‘s section for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells. Many visitors were very interested, to the point we started running out of brochures already on Wednesday.

Giantleap partner FESB has recently completed a public report on their progress towards the development of techniques to recover fuel-cell degradation that was previously thought to be irreversible. This may have profound impact on the lifetime of fuel cells and their commercialisation.

The Giantleap project will deliver a plenary keynote presentation at the 8th conference on Fundamentals and Development of Fuel Cells in Nantes, France, 12-14 February 2019.
[UPDATE] The presentation is available at this link.
Giantleap’s workshop took place on December 12th in Belfort, France as an invited session of the IEEE VPPC 2017 conference.
The aim of the workshop was to provide a forum for researchers and industrials around topics such as fuel cell degradation mechanisms, prognostics and control related to fuel cell systems for transport applications.
Giantleap’s Workshop Presentations are now on-line:
GIANTLEAP -“Diagnostics of PEMFC Degradation“, FESB, Gojmir Radica
GIANTLEAP -“Model-based approach for Prognostic in Public Transport Systems“, UFC, Raffaele Petrone
GIANTLEAP -“Diagnostics, Prognostics and Control Models for Bus Fuel Cell Systems“, SINTEF, Ivar Halvorsen
GIANTLEAP -“Fuel Cell Systems for FCE buses“, Bosch Enegineering, Harald Fischer
GIANTLEAP – “Range Extender for Electrical Citybus“, VDL, Ruud Bouwman
High V.Lo City – “Towards zero emission public transports with fuel cell electric buses“, Valentine Willmann
NewBusFuel, “Hydrogen fuel production and dispensation costs for fuel cell bus operators“, Edward Boyd
