A new hydrogen station was officially inauguarted today in Bad Homburg, bringing the total number of stations in Germany to 76.
Located at the Hessol filling station, Ober-Eschbacher-Strasse 142, the hydrogen station was opened by H2 Mobility Deutschland and Air Liquide.
Bad Homburg was awarded funding for the construction of the station in 2018 during H2 Mobility’s second call for locations.
Many citizens and companies had expressed their support for hydrogen as a fuel and made this clear with more than 70 statements of intent to purchase fuel cell electric vehicles, H2 Mobility said.
Today, Alexander W. Hetjes, the Lord Mayor of Bad Homburg v. d. Höhe; Andreas Fischer, Head of Hessol filling stations; Nikolas Iwan, Managing Director of H2 Mobility Deutschland; and Mirko Joppich, Project Manager Air Liquide Advanced Technologies, officially inaugurated the facility.
Founded in 2015 by partners Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde, OMV, Shell and Total, H2 Mobility has a vision of building the filling station network of the future.
It is responsible for establishing a nationwide hydrogen infrastructure to supply cars with fuel cell drives in Germany.
The joint venture is now just 24 stations away from its goal of 100 hydrogen stations by 2020.
