Sizewell C nuclear power plant to get four hydrogen buses from Ballymena
The Sizewell C nuclear power plant will get four hydrogen buses from Ballymena bus maker Wrightbus as part of a test program.
If successful, one of the biggest hydrogen bus fleets in the world might be built using up to 150 vehicles.
The plant’s construction is scheduled to start next year, and moving personnel to and from the site will require a number of vehicles. Four double-decker buses will undergo performance testing at Sizewell C.
