ElDorado National-California (ENC), a subsidiary of REV Group, held an open house to present its zero-emission Axess FC, a fuel-cell electric bus and the first 12-year/500,000-mile Altoona-tested fuel-cell bus.

The latest Axess FC, a hydrogen fuel-cell bus, which is otherwise known as “Battery Dominant Fuel Cell Bus,” offers an innovative alternative-fuel solution relying on compressed hydrogen to power. Electric fuel cells produce electricity, and that energy is stored in Hydrogen tanks. The resulting energy storage is twice that of a battery-electric bus. It has increased range, extending beyond 300 miles, and a faster fueling time, which means no major disruption to the bus facility.

Each zero-emission bus, over a 12-year period, can eliminate 1,690 tons of carbon dioxide, 10 tons of nitrogen oxide, and 350 pounds of diesel particulate matter.

ElDorado National-California has been working with fuel-cell technology for over 10 years and delivered its first fuel-cell bus back in 2014.
