Hydrogenics Provides Fuel Cell Bus Update

North American Traction Continues

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 4, 2009) - Hydrogenics Corporation (TSX:HYG)(NASDAQ:HYGS), a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and fuel cell products, today provided an order update related to its power module business for mobile applications.

In North America, the Company recently received an additional order from Proterra LLC for a zero-emission bus to be deployed in Fort Lewis, Washington, as part of a project led by the Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE), sponsored under the Defense Logistics Agency's (DLA) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research and Development Program. This is the third Proterra EcoRide transit bus that will utilize Hydrogenics' fuel cell power modules. Separately, Hydrogenics will soon begin building two HyPM HD 16 units for a zero-emission EVAmerica, LLC Ecobus transit bus project to be demonstrated in Birmingham, Alabama. This initiative, supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration to the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), is led by a UAB research team and also coordinated by CTE. The EVAmerica bus will be operated by the Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority (BJCTA) and service the UAB campus as well as metropolitan Birmingham.

"We are pleased to note further progress within the fuel cell bus market," said Daryl Wilson, President and CEO. "Our reputation is paving the way for more orders in North America, and we are truly becoming the power module vendor of choice for bus manufacturers such as Proterra. These awards strengthen our position for future contracts, as stimulus dollars across the globe continue to target clean energy solutions leveraging the power of hydrogen."
