Rampini has been awarded the supply of 2 eight-meter hydrogen buses for the Port of Civitavecchia (Italy) in the framework of the European Pilot Project Life 3H. Rampini fuel cell bus project has been announced in late 2020 and was supposed to be unveiled at Busworld 2021 (cancelled).

Fabio Magnoni, Rampini general manager, underlined that “Life 3h is an opportunity to make sustainable travel in the areas chosen as Hydrogen Valleys, in order to reduce the impact of mobility on the environment and on everyone’s health. This pilot project could only have taken shape in areas, which have already amply demonstrated their sensitivity towards eco-sustainability. For example, the Port of Civitavecchia – a symbol of the transition to zero-emission maritime mobility – hosted the world’s first LNG ship and the first zero-emission ferry in port. Or the Campo Felice area – which, like its own region, Abruzzo, is a mountain town deeply involved in achieving energy and climate targets.

At the same time, Life 3h for Rampini marks the actual birth of the hydrogen project, which will see us as the only Italian manufacturer of zero emission city buses.”
