Under the azure skies of the Italian Riviera, the latest EU Fuel Cell Hydrogen bus project, High V.LO-City, Cities speeding up the integration of hydrogen buses in public fleets, in European bus operations, was inaugurated by the president of the Provice of Imperia on March 23, 2012. The five year project, with a total budget of 31,5 mln co-financed by the Fuel Cell Hydrogen Joint Undertaking Program (FCH JU) involves three regions such as Flanders (V), Liguria (L) and Scotland (O) who will put each five fuel cell hybrid (FCH) buses in daily service under different climate and busroute conditions. The president of the Province of Imperia, Luigi Sappa, indicated that the involvement of provinces liek the Provincia di Imperia in these large scale EU projects demonstrated that public transport authorities of all sizes start to recognize fuel cell hydrogen bus technology as a mature technology offering not only environmentnal but also economic advantages. Imperia will have Italy’s largest fuel cell hydrogen bus fleet next to Milan where as of this July three FCH buses will circle the city centre in daily service as part of the CHIC project.
