H2 Mobility, along with its partners Shell and Air Liquide, has opened Germany’s 83rd hydrogen refuelling station in Dortmund in the North Rhine-Westphalia region.
With the new addition announced today, Dortmund now has 18 hydrogen stations in operation, with Bavaria running closely behind with 17 stations.
The new hydrogen station is funded by the European Commission through the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), as part of the Hydrogen Mobility Europe project.
H2 Mobility expects to reach its goal of 100 stations in Germany by mid-2020.
“Hydrogen has what it takes to revolutionise our mobility in a sustainable way in every respect, because hydrogen means emission-free driving for all size: cars, buses, trucks or trains,” said Nikolas Iwan, Managing Director H2 Mobility Deutschland GmbH.
“Hydrogen is one of the best solutions to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement,” says Markus Schewitza, Managing Director at Air Liquide Advanced Technologies.
“It has the potential to decarbonise the transportation sector, one of the major sources of pollution in our cities. Air Liquide is proud to be involved in building Europe’s largest hydrogen infrastructure.”
