H2 Mobility Deutschland, along with its shareholders OMV and Air Liquide, has opened a new hydrogen filling station in Schnelldorf in the Ansbach district.
The opening of the new station marks the 16th facility in Bavaria and takes Germany one step closer to its goal of 100 hydrogen stations by the end of the year.
“Filling stations are central points of contact and supply for mobility change. They provide the necessary infrastructure and thus make an important contribution to the ecologically and economically sustainable mobility of the future,” said Michael Sattler, Head of OMV Future Energy.
“New technologies and innovation are important to us – which is why we also concern ourselves with future energies such as hydrogen.”
“We believe in the long-term success of this technology, especially in the field of heavy transport, and are committed to expanding the hydrogen infrastructure network.”
The new OMV filling station at Rudolf-Diesel-Strasse 1 in Schnelldorf, is located just off the Feuchtwangen/Crailsheim motorway junction, near the A6 and A7 motorways.
“Germany is on its way to becoming a trailblazer in hydrogen-powered electromobility,” said Nikolas Iwan, Managing Director of H2 Mobility Deutschland GmbH.
“We are currently building the backbone of the hydrogen infrastructure with the first 100 stations in metropolitan areas, as well as along trunk roads and motorways. Our further expansion is demand-driven.”
The new hydrogen station is funded by the European Commission through the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU) in the Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) project.
