Everfuel Sweden and OKQ8 have joined forces to develop a hydrogen station network spanning some of Sweden’s prime locations – and the duo hope to have up to 15 of the strategically located sites open by 2024.
Formalising the agreement today (July 13), having entered into a cooperation agreement for joint development of the facilities, the partnership said the network will initially cover the larger cities and transport corridors between Stockholm, Malmoe and Gothenburg.
Commenting on the plans, Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, said, “We need strong partners like OKQ8 to drive transition to zero-emission mobility. Their leading position in Sweden and extensive service station network is highly complementary to our expertise in safe and efficient production, distribution and filling of green hydrogen to end-users.
“Our cooperation will increase the availability of green hydrogen as a fuel for mobility, which is a prerequisite for a decarbonised society.”
Everfuel will be responsible for operating the developed hydrogen stations and supply the green hydrogen to the sites. Together, the parties will jointly develop lead customers to enable establishment of each stations.
The parties are at an advanced stage at several locations and will provide further information as the roll-out progresses.
Karin Hellgren, Head of Communications of OKQ8, added, “We want to help all our customers transition and hydrogen represents an exciting future alternative and is an important step for Sweden to reach its climate objectives.
“A strong partnership is required to enable development of the hydrogen market in Sweden and Everfuel has extensive knowledge and experience within this area.”
