German city Landshut is building its first hydrogen station.
Located at the new OMV petrol station on Ludwig-Erhard-Straße in the Münchnerau business park, the new hydrogen station is expected to open in the first quarter of 2020.
H2 Mobility Deutschland, which aims to build a nationwide hydrogen infrastructure in Germany, will operate the station.
The announcement of the Landshut station moves Germany one step closer to its goal of 100 hydrogen stations – which would be the world’s largest network of hydrogen stations.
Florian Oßner, member of the German Bundestag, representing the Bundestag constituency Landshut-Kelheim, said the city has fought for six years to get a hydrogen station.
“Sustainable climate protection and the effective implementation of the energy transition are possible with the nationwide development of a hydrogen infrastructure. That’s why we fought for six years for the H2 region Landshut to compete in the competition for a petrol station,” he said.
“I am very pleased that our project has succeeded in putting the Landshut region at the forefront of the hydrogen infrastructure development.”
