Groundbreaking for New Hydrogen Fueling Facility
Serving ‘Largest Fuel Cell Fleet Outside of California’
SARTA, the Canton, Ohio-based Stark Area Regional Transit Authority, is hosting a groundbreaking on Tuesday, January 5 for what promises to be one of the nation’s largest hydrogen fueling facilities. Taking advantage of federal funding, SARTA expects to field seven hydrogen fuel cell buses next year for “the largest fuel cell fleet outside of California in the U.S.”
“This is a big step for SARTA and Ohio,” SARTA CEO Kirt Conrad says in an invitational bulletin.
SARTA is using fielding Axess model transit buses from ElDorado National with Ballard fuel cells and BAE Systems drivelines, with hydrogen fuel cylinders from Luxfer (F&F, February 10, 2015).
