HONG KONG, May 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hong Kong's first-ever double-decker electric bus was officially unveiled at the launching ceremony of the #MissionZero campaign organized by Bravo Transport Services Limited ("Bravo Transport") today. Important government officials of the Hong Kong SAR officiated at the ceremony and delivered congratulatory speeches. The electric bus was manufactured by Wisdom (Fujian) Motor Co Ltd. in mainland China and arrived in Hong Kong last year and has gone through the testing and inspection procedures. The launch of the double-decker electric buses is another milestone in the century-old history of public bus services in Hong Kong.

At the launching ceremony, Bravo Transport made a commitment to fully adopt zero-emission buses in 2045."

We are more looking forward to the hydrogen fuel cell bus which will arrive in Hong Kong in two months. Compared with rechargeable electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are more suitable for Hong Kong's double-decker buses because in Hong Kong because of their long endurance mileage and short fueling time. Meanwhile, there is a need for the hydrogen energy supply chain and infrastructure in Hong Kong to be deployed and constructed from scratch. As such, it will definitely bring investment opportunities and economic growth in various emerging businesses. Hence, the hydrogen industrial chains business is one of the development strategies of Hans Energy in the future. The Group will strive to provide fuel supply solutions for the introduction and promotion of the use of hydrogen fuel cell buses and other hydrogen fuel vehicles in Hong Kong, strive to screen out hydrogen energy supply and storage projects that can be used in Hong Kong, and increase its research and investment in the hydrogen energy supply chain field."
