Ballard’s stacks are expected to power zero-emission buses planned for demonstration in various Indian cities.

The company is expected to deliver its stacks to Tata Motors in 2012 and 2013.

Tata Motors’ plan to supply fuel cell buses for testing and demonstration in revenue service is supported by the Government of India’s Department of Scientific and Industrial Research under the Technology Development & Demonstration Program.

Ballard president and CEO said John Sheridan said this is additional validation of the mature state of our products and of the growing global market for clean energy transit buses.

Ballard FCvelocity-1100 fuel cell stacks are based on a design that is ideal for use in heavy duty vehicles.

FCvelocity-1100 fuel cell stack technology is at the heart of the company’s FCvelocity-HD6 fuel cell module, a plug and play power solution used by bus OEM’s around the world.
