HRS lays foundation for hydrogen refuelling station in Lorient

HRS has laid the first stone of a hydrogen refuelling station in Lorient, only a few months after the order was placed.

The stone was laid on the site of the bus depot on May 9, with Fabrice Loher, President of Lorient Agglomération, marking the launch of construction work for the bus depot’s distribution site. The station will be the second in the Morbihan department, complementing the one installed by HRS on the Michelin site in Vannes in 2022.

For several years, Lorient Agglomération, Brittany’s third largest urban conglomeration, has been pursuing a bold energy transition policy to address the global challenges of limiting climate change.

Lorient Agglomération is aiming to accelerate the decarbonisation of the surrounding area and to reduce transport-related greenhouse gas emissions by 78%. With the support of ADEME, the Brittany regional authority and Morbihan Energies, a project to roll out an ecosystem for the production and distribution of green energy in the region has accordingly been launched. By 2030, the entire thermal bus and boat-bus fleet is gradually to migrate to low-carbon alternative solutions, some of which will run on hydrogen.
