At the beginning of August, a cornerstone was laid in Vienna for the construction of a hydrogen filling station, which will supply buses with environmentally friendly fuel, and the first hydrogen bus can be expected on the streets of Vienna in December.

More environmentally friendly public transport is one of the important goals of the Austrian capital. That is why Vienna is investing in “green” hydrogen, ie hydrogen produced from renewable energy sources, which is considered the climate-friendly fuel of the future. In the garage of the city public transport company Wiener Linien, a cornerstone was laid which marked the beginning of the construction of the first hydrogen filling station in the Austrian capital, where buses and trucks of the Vienna city concern Stadtwerke will be filled with hydrogen.

The first hydrogen-powered bus will be found on the streets of Vienna in December this year, and it is expected that the filling station will be completed by then. In addition, in the 11th district of Simmering, preparatory works are underway for the construction of a 2.5 MW plant that will produce hydrogen by water electrolysis. The Solaris hydrogen bus was put into the testing phase last year, when the residents of Vienna had the opportunity to use the bus line for free for nine days. According to the announcements of the city’s public transport company, by 2024, ten hydrogen-powered buses should operate on that line.
