Hynion, Hyundai and Toyota have signed an agreement to expand the capacity at Hynion’s hydrogen station located in Høvik, Norway.
Since its opening in November, the station has fuelled many hydrogen cars in the Oslo region, but capacity has been limited. Now with the planned expansion, the station will have the capability to fuel 25-30 cars per day.
“Now it will be expanded with a new processing line and dispenser,” said Ulf Hafself, Head of Hynion.
“This provides improved capacity and will provide motorists with a better supply of hydrogen fuel. In addition, the lines will be independent and thus act as back-up stations for each other, providing greater security for refuelling their car.”
“We are pleased that we have reached such a collaboration that clearly shows that the hydrogen car has a place in the process of converting the vehicle park to zero emissions.”
Espen Olsen, Information Manager at Toyota Norway, said, “We are soon ready for our second generation hydrogen car, and it is important to provide sufficient filling opportunities for new and existing customers. Therefore, we have today entered into a collaboration that will provide increased capacity from the station at Høvik.
“Hyundai has a goal of being one of the world’s three largest electric car manufacturers by 2025, and hydrogen electric cars represent a significant proportion of this,” Øyvind Knudsen, Product and Public Relations Manager at Hyundai Motor Norway.
“This makes it important for Hyundai Motor Norway to contribute to a functioning hydrogen filling infrastructure in Norway.”
