Germany’s 81st hydrogen station opens

Currently averaging a new hydrogen station every two weeks in Germany, H2 Mobility today opened its 81st in Biebelried, Bavaria.

Located at the TOTAL station at Würzburger Straße 55, the new station was built by H2 Mobility, a joint venture between Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde, OMV, Shell and TOTAL.

The station has the latest state-of-the-art technology provided by Linde and has a capacity of around 200kg of hydrogen – enough to refuel 40 to 50 vehicles a day.

H2 Mobility expects to reach its goal of 100 stations in Germany by mid-2020.

“In my view, hydrogen is a key raw material that is indispensable for achieving our climate targets. With a national hydrogen strategy, the Federal Government will therefore set the course for Germany to become the world’s number one player in this technology,” Dr. Anja Weisgerber, member of the German Bundestag, spokesperson for environmental and climate policy of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the German Bundestag, said.

“The time for hydrogen technology has come.”

Bruno Daude-Lagrave, Managing Director of TOTAL Deutschland, added, “Hydrogen mobility offers the opportunity for high-performance electromobility with considerable advantages for passenger cars over long distances, but especially for commercial vehicles.”

“However, the transformation of mobility towards more environmentally friendly solutions is not an easy task – therefore we highly appreciate the political support for more technological diversity in the electromobility sector, which we are proactively promoting with the network expansion in Germany.”
