Sweden’s hydrogen station network is set to expand, with plans today (Sep 30) being unveiled for a new facility in Borlänge to support heavy-duty vehicles.
Nel Hydrogen Fueling will supply the station, having received an order from Swedish haulier and construction MaserDrakt as part of the company’s decarbonisation goals.
To be operational by Q4 2022, the H2Station™ will be able to refuel vehicles in heavy-duty vehicles in in less than fifteen minutes. The station price was not disclosed.
On the order, Christian Vinther, Key Account Manager at Nel Hydrogen Fueling, said, “We are very happy to be chosen by MaserFrakt to be the supplier of their first hydrogen fuelling station.
“MaserFrakt, one of Sweden’s largest companies in the haulier and construction business, has taken an important decision by introducing hydrogen for mobility, supporting their aim of becoming climate neutral by 2035.
“We look forward to supporting MaserFrakt AB with the continued transition towards zero emission transport in Sweden.”
Per Bondemark, CEO at MaserFrakt, added, “We are pleased to announce the signature of a promising contract with our partner Nel, which will allow us to move forward on our way towards climate neutral transportation.
We are looking forward to using this equipment to power fuel cell heavy trucks that will be part of our fleet. Together with the recently announced agreement of hydrogen supply, this fits very well with our sustainability road map.”
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
