One of the main features of the Giantleap project is the idea of using fuel cells to extend the range of battery buses. To do so, battery buses and range extenders must be equipped with standardised electrical, mechanical and communication interfaces. Continue reading “Interfaces for Hydrogen Range Extenders”
ElringKlinger delivered several stack modules in the Giantleap project for integration in the fuel-cell system and for bench testing. These modules are actually more than a stack of fuel cells, and include multiple sensors and an innovative passive recirculation system.

Giantleap’s fourth project meeting was held on October 12 and 13 in Trondheim, Norway, at SINTEF’s premises. The focus of the meeting was on the realisation of the FC system and its subsequent integration into VDL’s prototype. Continue reading “Giantleap Meeting M18 held in Trondheim”
A workshop in the Giantleap project was held on September 21-22 in Abstatt, Germany, at Bosch Engineering’s premises, with the objective of accelerating work on the fuel-cell system’s control algorithms. Continue reading “Workshop on Control System”
The Giantleap project congratulates their partner FESB with a successful publication in the Journal of Power Sources on the presence of inductive phenomena in the low-frequency region of electrochemical impedance spectra in PEM fuel cells. Continue reading “Publication on Low-Frequency EIS Analysis”
The Giantleap project releases today its documentation on experimental protocols for stacks and balance-of-plant components. Continue reading “Giantleap experimental protocols”
The Giantleap project will hold a workshop in Belfort, France on December 12, 2017, in connection with VPPC 2017.
The workshop is open to anyone interested and free of charge; participation in VPPC 2017 is not required. For more information and to register for the workshop, please refer to the registration page.
The city of Aberdeen, Scotland, will host a series of events on March 15-17 focused on hydrogen buses. These are organised by the FCH JU projects NewBusFuel, HyTransit and High V.LO City. Continue reading “Aberdeen Hydrogen Transport Summit”
