Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL Bus Less Hydrogen

Hybridisation of the FuelCELL Hybrid with batteries (27 kW/h) saves 50 more hydrogen than the generation.

— A secured hydrogen is a prerequisite for the successful launch of and resource-friendly fuel-cell technology in use. The commissioning of the hydrogen station by the Karlsruhe Institute of (KIT) on its Campus North coincides with the start of for the shuttle service planned for and employees, in the form of two Mercedes-Benz FuelCELL Hybrid fuel-cell Ulrich Piotrowski, Head of Mercedes-Benz Buses Region was present at the inauguration of the filling on 11 June and officially sent the vehicles into regular-service

The KIT shuttle is a dedicated bus route for the and employees at the KIT Campus South, the University of Karlsruhe (TH) in the of Karlsruhe, and the KIT Campus North, the research centre in Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen. The service on the 15-kilometre route the Campus North, Campus and Campus East stops at intervals without any intermediate — mobility and innovation.

The FuelCELL concept in the Citaro

to the improved fuel-cell components the fuel-cell stacks are identical to in the Mercedes-Benz B-Class FCELL a fuel-cell drive system and hybridisation with lithium-ion (27 kW/h) the Citaro FuelCELL saves 50 percent more than the predecessor generation, which it benefits for the planned service. It has been possible to the number of tanks compared to the tried-and-tested fuel-cell buses nine to seven reservoirs for a of 35 kg of hydrogen. And where the FuelCELL drive system is concerned, the engineers have focused on As a power supplier the fuel is intelligently linked with components. Both the battery and wheel hub drive and also the braking energy recuperation are networked with one another. The bus has a range of over 300 kilometres and the time at the new filling station is a eight to ten minutes. This that the Citaro FuelCELL can be used in just as

uncomplicated a manner and as flexibly as diesel vehicles. In addition to the drive system with the cells is virtually maintenance-free and durable.

The award-winning Citaro FuelCELL

With these wide-ranging advancements purely electric with fuel cells as energy generators are coming a step closer to production The Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL facilitates permanent emission-free service between the campus and is thus an important element in mobility. The use of synergies and the Daimler transfer from the passenger car to the bus the fuel cell in the bus fit for the future.

It was this reasoning which year won the Citaro FuelCELL the ecology prize for local transport in the fuel-cell bus category, the Award. The Forum for Transport and e. V. awarded the prize under the of Dr Peter Ramsauer, the Federal of Transport, Building and Urban
