Air Liquide Korea will provide two high-capacity hydrogen chargers and supply hydrogen gas to a new hydrogen station at Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea.

The industrial gas giant is joining forces with Hyundai, Incheon International Airport Corporation (IIAC) and Hydrogen Energy Network (HyNet) to accelerate the airport’s efforts to become a low-carbon eco-friendly airport.

The four parties have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish the station and fleet of fuel cell electric buses at Incheon Airport’s Terminal 2 by March 2021.

Hyundai will support the construction cost of the hydrogen station while providing fuel cell electric buses as well as their maintenance and service; Incheon International Airport will provide a site for the station; HyNet will handle its construction and operation; and Air Liquide Korea will provide two high-capacity hydrogen chargers and supply hydrogen gas.
