Safra to deploy 10 Hycity hydrogen buses in Dunkirk

Safra hydrogen buses

French manufacturer Safra has won Dunkirk’s tender to supply 10 hydrogen-powered buses. The order adds to an already strong portfolio in the run-up to 2024.

Dunkirk chose the Hycity, Safra’s next-generation hydrogen bus. These are 12 meters, 3-door buses that will operate on the DK’BUS public transport network. This network, operated by STDE (Société des transports de Dunkerque et extensions) is linked to Transdev.

This ten hydrogen-powered buses from Safra will join 162 buses by 2024, 98 of which will run on bio-NGV and 3 on electric power. They will contribute to the region’s strategy of turning its fleet of vehicles into a zero-emission one. Their purchase is partly funded by ADEME as part of the 2021 “H2 territorial ecosystems” call for proposals. The bargain is supplemented by a 3-year vehicle maintenance contract, followed by a shared maintenance contract allowing for a gradual and supported transfer of technical expertise.
