Green Hydrogen Road Transport to be Boosted in Spain
Cepsa and Damas have signed an agreement to promote the development of green hydrogen in intercity road transport in Spain. How will this help to promote sustainable mobility?
The objective of the agreement is to incorporate buses powered by sustainable fuel into the Damas fleet of vehicles, which will run on several passenger transport lines in the provinces of Seville, Huelva, and Cadiz.
It has been said that the first green hydrogen-powered buses are scheduled to travel these routes in 2025 and that Cepsa will be providing refuelling facilities and the green hydrogen.
Damas will add up to 10 buses powered by hydrogen to its fleet in the initial phase. These vehicles will be used on several routes, close to the Andalusian Green Hydrogen Valley projects.
Some of these routes will be Huelva-Seville, Seville Chipiona, Seville-Camas, Seville-Tomares, Huelva-Punta Umbria, and Huelva-Puerto de Santa Maria.
Enrique Iglesias, Director of Commercial Structuring of Cepsa’s Hydrogen business, explained that promoting sustainable solutions is crucial: “This agreement is an important step in our goal to boost sustainable mobility, especially to promote the medium-distance transport sector in Andalusia and Spain.
“We will work with Damas to advance the energy transition together and seek sustainable solutions for our customers.”
