Udo Winkens, Managing Director of West Verkehr, said:

“With the purchase of the 12 hydrogen-powered vehicles, we are taking an important step towards converting the west's bus fleet to emission-free drives.”

These 12 units will be manufactured at Wrightbus’s headquarters in Ballymena, Northern Ireland.

Notably, the order advances Wrightbus’ ambition to break into the global sustainable transport market. It builds on its ongoing contract with Regionalverkehr Köln GmbH (RVK) to supply up to 60 Kite Hydroliner single-deck buses in Cologne.

Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Wrightbus, said:

“We are delighted to be partnering with West Verkehr to put more zero-emission hydrogen buses on the streets of Germany. For Wrightbus, hydrogen represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get ahead in the large-scale manufacturing of a technology that will be in demand across the world.

“This is another significant deal for us and is further evidence of the leading role we are playing on the global stage in tackling climate change through sustainable transport.”
