OrangeGas, a Netherlandic gas station company, has been awarded €2m from the German Climate Technology Initiative (DKTI) to develop hydrogen refuelling stations in Amsterdam and Utrecht.
Paired with a previous grant, the company has now been awarded a total of €2.6m for the station project.
The hydrogen stations are planned to be located at current OrangeGas facilities where alternative clean fuels are also available. The plans for Amsterdam are in the western port area and for Utrecht in the Large Weide business park.
“We want to realise another five to ten hydrogen filling stations in the coming five years, including in Leeuwarden, Zwolle and a second location in Amsterdam,” said Marcel Borger, Director and Founder of OrangeGas.
“In collaboration with AC Advisors, we have been awarded the subsidies and can take the first steps.”
This announcement is not the first hydrogen project OrangeGas will be involved in. The company is already in collaboration with Jan Paul Kerkhof from BP Kerkhof in The Hague, where a hydrogen filling station will be operational in October (2019).
