The renewable energy facility in Westbrook Lane, Herne Bay, was supposed to open by the end of the year, according to Ryse Hydrogen Ltd.
The project has been stalled due to pandemic-related delays, and diggers have yet to arrive on the three-acre site.
However, Ryse founder Jo Bamford has stated that the company plans to start construction on the multi-million-pound facility before the new year, despite the fact that it is more than a year behind schedule.
According to Ryse, the project could result in the creation of up to 20 jobs. The factory’s fuel will be tested on 20 London buses at first, but bosses believe it will be able to power up to 300.
According to the company, it is in talks with Kent councils about introducing zero-emission double-deckers across the county, which will be powered by the new plant and built by its sister company Wrightbus.
