CIMC-HEXAGON is a joint-venture company of CIMC Enric (Hong Kong: 3899) and Hexagon Purus (Oslo: HPUR), producing hydrogen cylinder and systems solutions for mobility applications in China and Southeast Asia. CIMC-HEXAGON has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Hong Kong-based bus operator Bravo Transport Services, serving more than 1 million passenger trips each day in Hong Kong with more than 1,700 transit, the majority of which are double-decker buses.
The initial scope of the MoU is for CIMC-HEXAGON to provide a Type 4 hydrogen storage cylinder system for the first fuel-cell double-decker bus in Hong Kong, with scheduled delivery in July 2022. In parallel, and subject to relevant approval from local authorities, Bravo and CIMC-HEXAGON will work together to develop more fuel-cell double-decker buses for trial in Hong Kong.
The final agreement to provide Type 4 hydrogen storage cylinder systems for further prototypes and serial production to Bravo’s development and subsequent replacement of the existing double-decker fleet in Hong Kong is subject to certain terms and conditions.
