AMSTERDAM, June 29 (Reuters) – Anglo-Dutch oil giant Royal Dutch Shell Plc. (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research)(RDSb.L: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Thursday that it is working with Dutch public transport and MAN Truck & Bus Company (MANG.DE: Quote, Profile, Research) to create a fleet of hydrogen-fueled buses in Rotterdam.

“The project aims to have the largest hydrogen bus fleet operational in a single region before the end of the decade,” Shell said in a statement.

Under the plan, more than 20 buses with hydrogen combustion engines will be manufactured by the bus builder MAN and be operated by Connexxion, one of the main public transport companies in the Netherlands.

Buses will be fueled from a Shell combined gasoline-hydrogen service station, the first in the Netherlands, Shell said.
