HyER member Aberdeen City Council wins two major awards for hydrogen activities

HyER member Aberdeen City Council has won two LowCVP (Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership) Awards in Milton Keynes (United Kingdom) last Wednesday 13th of September.

The Aberdeen Bus Project, which deployed the biggest fuel cell bus fleet in Europe and delivered the UK’s largest hydrogen production and bus refuelling station, won the Low Carbon Road Transport Initiative of the Year award. The EU funded projects High V.LO-City and HyTransit are part of the Aberdeen Bus Project.

Aberdeen City Council also won the ‘Grand Prix Award’: Outstanding Achievement in Low Carbon Transport (Winner of winners) awards for its H2 Aberdeen initiative. The H2 Aberdeen initiative incorporates all the hydrogen activities developed in Aberdeen.

HyER would like to warmly congratulate the HyER President Councillor Barney Crockett, the Aberdeen City Council staff and all their collaborators for all the hard work undertaken in the hydrogen sector in the last few years, making the Aberdeen Bus Project a success story and making Aberdeen a pioneer city in Europe. These awards are a due recognition of the Council’s work and HyER is hoping that more successful projects will be launched in the coming years in the city.
