Exploiting the results of the Giantleap project, Dutch operator Connexxion has put a hydrogen range extender in operation on line 436 between Rotterdam (Hoeksche Waard) to the island of Goeree Overflakkee.
You can check this site for timetables if you want to ride the bus. Congratulations to VDL!
The Giantleap project was included in the latest issue of Open Access Government. The article gives a bird’s eye view on the project.
Elodie Pahon, a young researcher working on Giantleap and previously on its predecessor project Sapphire at the University of Franche-Comté, was awarded the prize for best Young Scientist by Hydrogen Europe Research at a ceremony organised in connection with the FCH JU Programme Review Days on November 15, 2018.
Ms. Pahon won in the category associated to the Transport pillar (one out of only three categories) for her work in diagnostics and prognostics of fuel cells, the very core topic of projects Giantleap and Sapphire.
The Giantleap project congratulates Ms. Pahon and UFC on the award!
