Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL

Stuttgart/Hamburg The bus of the future is up and running in ultra-quiet and with zero Hamburger Hochbahn AG has acquired Mercedes-Benz Citaro FuelCELL under the German NaBuZ scheme to promote sustainable bus for the future. Three more are to follow next year. Schick, head of Daimler handed over the first two of this new generation to Günter CEO of Hamburger Hochbahn AG, in the presence of Scholz, First Mayor of the and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, and Bomba, undersecretary at the German of transport. With the new FuelCELL vehicles, Hamburg is once assuming a pioneering role in field. This transport has already made a name for and acquired good experience its trials in Europe of fuel buses from the previous Passengers and drivers were delighted with the new technology, Hartmut Schick at the handover

Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid

The FuelCELL Hybrid features a of key innovations in comparison to the fuel buses which went trial operation in Hamburg in hybridisation with energy and storage in lithium-ion batteries, electric motors in the wheel offering a continuous output of 120 kW, auxiliary units and more fuel cells. The latter are for an extended service life of at six years or 12,000 operating The fuel cell stacks of the new FuelCELL Hybrid are identical to of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class FCELL fuel cell drive, is also being put to the test by in Hamburg. As on the earlier fuel buses, the two stacks are already on the vehicle’s roof. They are now by the lithium-ion batteries which energy that is recovered braking, for example. With the power from this accumulator, the new Citaro FuelCELL is able to run for several kilometres on power alone. The concept the new FuelCELL bus essentially corresponds to of the Mercedes-Benz BlueTec Hybrid which are in

service in Hamburg. A key difference is the latter derive their power from a diesel while in the new FuelCELL buses the cells generate the electricity for the motors, without producing any whatsoever.

The improved fuel cell and the hybridisation with lithium-ion result in a reduction of almost 50 in hydrogen consumption for the new Citaro Hybrid in comparison to the previous As a result, it has been possible to the number of tanks from the of nine on board the fuel buses deployed in earlier in Hamburg to seven on the current holding 35 kg of hydrogen in all. The cell bus has a range of around 250 The drive system with the cells is furthermore virtually and has a very long service These diverse technical bring buses running on power alone with cells as energy generators a step closer.

Günter Elste, CEO of Hamburger AG observed: According to all the forecasts, 20 to 25 from now mineral oil and, in diesel will be in short and too expensive to be a viable fuel for From the coming decade on, thus aims to purchase electrically driven zero-emission Commissioning this new generation of represents an important step on the to electric mobility.

Hartmut head of Daimler Buses, Hamburger Hochbahn AG is a company displays a great commitment to in all areas, from the generation of to its sustainable use. We at Daimler have similarly defined as a leading corporate objective.

The NaBuZ demo project

of the Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid as part of the NaBuZ demo is to take place on HOCHBAHN’s services. The project is integrated the Clean Energy Partnership

The NaBuZ project receives through the federal transport National Innovation Programme NIP is coordinated by NOW GmbH. There also be close cooperation the European CHIC project, in 26 fuel cell buses are run in five European cities.

Buses’ involvement in the NaBuZ project and the CHIC project on from the European Union’s CUTE and HyFLEET:CUTE projects were staged from to 2009. In the course of these 36 Mercedes-Benz Citaros fitted second-generation fuel cell put in an excellent showing in operation twelve transport companies on continents. Mercedes-Benz buses the practical viability of the environmentally fuel cell drive more than 140,000 hours covering more 2.2 million kilometres.
