Joint venture H2 Mobility Deutschland and its shareholders Shell and Air Liquide have opened a new hydrogen filling station in Passau, Germany.
The new station in Passau marks Germany’s 77th hydrogen refilling station. There are currently stations spread across 16 cities in the country including in Munich, Nuremberg and Augsburg,
“I am very pleased that the first Lower Bavarian hydrogen filling station has been located is Passau. At the same time, the expansion of climate-friendly fuel offers will create new opportunities for future mobility in our city,” said Jürgen Dupper, Passau City Mayor.
Located at the Shell service station at Regensburger Straße 68, the new facility is positioned in the immediate vicinity of Passau city centre as well as the A3 federal motorway and the B8 and B12 federal roads.
“Hydrogen is one of the best possible solutions for achieving the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. It has the potential to decarbonise the transport sector, one of the main sources of pollution in our cities,” said Markus Schewitza, Manging Director of Air Liquide Advanced Technologies.
“Zero emissions passenger cars and commercial vehicles powered by fuel cells will command a significant market share worldwide and will make a major contribution to reducing transport-related emissions,” said Nikolas Iwan, Managing Director of H2 Mobility Deutschland.
“This is why H2 Mobility is further expanding the hydrogen filling station network in Germany. By doing so, we ensure that more and more people and companies can switch to hydrogen.”
