Poland's Solaris Bus & Coach company will deliver 12 hydrogen-powered city buses to Bolzano, Italy. Bolzano is the first city to try out hydrogen-run public transport vehicles. The contract also includes an eight-year service agreement.

Last year, the Polish manufacturer also delivered electric buses to Bolzano, regarded as one of the pioneer-cities in clean-energy public transportation.

The vehicles will be able to cover up to 350 kilometres on one full tank of hydrogen. Each bus will be equipped with a Solaris High Power battery and a 60 kW fuel cell.

Solaris Bus & Coach is a leading European bus producer. In September 2018, the company joined the Spanish-based CAF group.
