A new hydrogen station will be constructed in Copenhagen this year to support the country’s growing fleet of hydrogen fuelled taxis.
The new H2Station®, which was ordered by green energy supplier Everfuel last month, will be supplied by Nel ASA, a Norwegian hydrogen solutions provider.
“We are excited to enter into this first contract with Everfuel on providing our H2Station® fuelling solution to help support the deployment and use of hydrogen powered zero emissions taxis in Copenhagen,” said Jens Egholt Rasmussen, Global Sales Director for Nel Hydrogen Fuelling.
“For Everfuel this initiative marks the start in offering competitive zero emission hydrogen fuel for vehicle fleets operators throughout Europe, without compromising cost and performance compared to conventional vehicles,” said Jacob Krogsgaarf, CEO of Everfuel.
“This will also be one of the first high capacity, dual fill 700bar stations in Europe, ready for the planned scale up of green taxis in Copenhagen.”
The new station is supported by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking under the Hydrogen Mobility Europe project.
The value of the contract has not been disclosed.
