Air Products has opened a new hydrogen fuelling station at its industrial gases facility in Ulsan City, South Korea - the first station built and operated by the private sector in the city under the South Korean Government’s subsidy programme.

Unveiled on Wednesday (7th April), the facility utilises Air Products’ state-of-the-art hydrogen fuelling technology and is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to Ulsan City, which houses the country’s hydrogen industry hub and is one of the three pilot cities in the national hydrogen economy roadmap.

“Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies are part of the solution to the energy and environmental challenges of today and tomorrow,” said Kim Kyo-Yung, President of Air Products Korea.

“As the world’s largest hydrogen producer and a global leader in hydrogen technology, Air Products is committed to supporting South Korea to realise a hydrogen-powered society through our expertise across every aspect of the hydrogen for mobility value chain.”

Ulsan, the country’s largest hydrogen production and distribution city, has been designated as a Free Trade Zone for hydrogen mobility development. It was the first city to operate hydrogen buses and taxis and has established itself as the centre of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
