McGuigan welcomes plan to produce hydrogen buses at Wrightbus

Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has welcomed plans by Wrightbus to develop a major facility in Ballymena to power hydrogen buses. 

The North Antrim MLA asaid:

“Plans by Wrightbus to develop a new facility to power hydrogen buses in Ballymena is welcome news. 

“It’s projected that this facility will be able to power 300 hydrogen buses, with the ability to expand even further to meet demand.

“Not only will this help to cut carbon emissions produced from public transport, but it will also help to create jobs, bring money into the local economy and grow this local business.

“Wrightbus have just recently secured contracts to produce hydrogen and electric buses for the south and Germany as they reap the benefits of unique access to the EU single market.”

A huge thank you to all involved in the SAY (Social Action Youth) group who came to Stormont today to give us their ideas on how to make a difference and improve services for young people experiencing domestic abuse.

Their voices were extremely powerful and must be heard…

Sinn Féin in gov't will guarantee the right to retire at 65 with a pension if you choose to do so.

This should be funded, in the first instance, by an increase in employers' PSRI for those who pay their staff over €100k p/a. This would bring in €169m this year - @PearseDoherty
