US Hybrid to deploy its fuel cell bus in Costa Rica in support of Costa Rica vision to become fossil fuel energy independent with renewable energy and transportation

The Hydrogen Ecosystem Project is a public-private partnership (PPP) between Costa Rica’s Sistema de Banca para el Desarrollo (SBD), a public financial institution, promoting Costa Rica’s technological development and four other partners under the leadership of Ad Astra, including, Air Liquide, a world leader in gases, technologies, and services for industry and health; US Hybrid Corporation, specializing in hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles, Cummins Inc. a US global power leader in diesel and alternative fuel engines, and Relaxury S.A., a subsidiary of Costa Rica’s Purdy Motor S.A, who will operate the bus initially for the partnership as a not-for-profit demonstration for the Costa Rican people. All team members have contributed their own resources to the project. The partnership combines key logistics, expertise and technology to launch the bus as part of a carbon-free sustainable ecosystem and seeks operational experience with clean, domestically produced hydrogen as a viable transportation fuel for Costa Rica and other economies looking to achieve a carbon-free energy infrastructure. Fuel-cell electric vehicles could promote the profitable growth of a clean transportation alternative in regional markets.
