Electrolyser manufacturer GreenHydrogen has been chosen to deliver Denmark’s first hydrogen fuelling station for fuel cel busses.
Located in Ålborg, Denmark, the station is expected to be fully operational by October (2019).
“The project is supported under the 3EMotion program and Region Nordjylland and Municipality of Ålborg have bought three hydrogen fuel cell busses from Van Hool for daily and long term testing of operating hydrogen fuel cell busses,” GreenHydrogen explained in a statement.
“The project will run for at a least a three-year period, but provided test results are positive, the region contemplates to acquire additional fuel cell busses to gradually replace their diesel busses.”
Region Nodjylland chose the modular hydrogen fuelling station concept from GreenHydrogen – Side-H – as this provides for a limited, initial investment matching the current requirement for production, storage and filling capacity of approximately 100 kg of hydrogen per day (30 kg/bus).
If more busses are acquired by the region, the modularity of GreenHydrogens’ Side-H fuelling station ensures it can be incrementally upgraded by adding modules to increase capacity as the fleet of fuel cell busses grow.
GreenHydrogen will deliver the station in cooperation with partner Clantech.
