Oil India completes beta demo for hydrogen-powered bus


Oil India, a state-owned oil and gas producer, has completed a beta demonstration of a hydrogen-powered bus it developed under its “Sneh” startup incubation program.

Ohm Cleantech, a part of Pune-base electrolyzer specialist H2e Power Systems, developed the bus. It is purportedly the first hydrogen-operated bus to be made in India.

The bus is powered by a 60 kW PEM fuel cell. It provides a minimum range of 450 km on a single refill. The bus will welcome tourists to the Kaziranga Nation Park in Assam in the months aheads. 

Oil India’s green hydrogen plant at its Jorhat oilfield in Assam will supply the green hydrogen required for the bus. H2e Power Systems commissioned the plant for Oil India. The hydrogen will be blended with natural gas to run the hydrogen bus.
