Dynetek Industries Ltd. (Calgary, Canada) announced that it will deliver three on-board, hydrogen, fuel storage systems for fuel cell buses bound for Perth, Western Australia, in the first quarter of 2004. Dynetek is providing the fuel storage solution using its certified 350bar (5,000psi) hydrogen fuel storage system. Ballard Power Systems will provide its latest-generation, heavy-duty, fuel cell engines to EvoBus for integration into Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses.

"We are honored to be working again with both Ballard Power and DaimlerChrysler in helping lead the way in adoption of zero-emission fuel cell technology," said Dynetek President and CEO Robb Thompson. "In addition to these three fuel cell buses for demonstration in Perth, Dynetek also previously delivered the fuel storage systems for 30 Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses, which are part of a two-year demonstration program in 10 European cities."
