Nel Hydrogen A/S, a subsidiary of Nel ASA, has received purchase orders from Shell Nederland Verkoopmaatschappij B.V. for the installation of two H2Station® units in the Netherlands.

The two H2Station units in the Netherlands will be manufactured and installed during 2019, with a total contract value of approximately €2.5m ($2.85m).

The orders follow the signing of a new framework agreement between Nel and Shell Global Solutions International B.V. to continue a partnership in the global roll-out of hydrogen (H2) stations.

“We are excited to announce a new framework agreement with Shell, which is not only a great honour but also proves the strength of our state-of-the-art technology,” said Jon André Løkke, CEO of Nel.

“We look forward to continuing our strong partnership and will make the necessary investments to support Shell’s roll-out of a H2 fuelling network, both in California, as well as other key markets.”

Nel Hydrogen has delivered several H2Station solutions for Shell since 2014, both in Europe and in the US.
