Sainsbury’s has announced the UK’s first supermarket forecourt hydrogen dispenser will be located at its Hendon (London) store by the end of the year (2014).
Working with Air Products, the new dispenser will join a network of existing stations helping to bring a breath of fresh air to residents and visitors in London and the South East.
The SmartFuel® station will be able to fuel a growing number of hydrogen-powered fleets driving around the capital. From hydrogen-powered buses running between Covent Garden and Tower Gateway, to hybrid delivery vans operated by Commercial Group and hydrogen powered taxis already driving on London’s roads; it is clear hydrogen isn’t a fuel of the future, it’s a fuel for today.
Avishai Moor, Fuel & Kiosk Category Manager from Sainsbury’s, commented, “Hydrogen vehicles are both environmentally friendly as well as efficient so we are really excited about being the first UK supermarket to trial this new technology and make it accessible to our customers.”
