HTEC and Shell open Canada’s first hydrogen station in Vancouver


HTEC (Hydrogen Technology & Energy Corporation) today opened Canada’s first retail hydrogen (H2) refuelling station in partnership with Shell.

The station, located at 8686 Granville Street in Vancouver, is the first in a six-station network HTEC is building in Greater Vancouver and Victoria. This network will enable the deployment of the first 1,000 zero-emission H2 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in British Columbia (BC), and HTEC will partner with Shell on three of the six stations.

“How fitting Canada’s first retail H2 station opens in Vancouver when the country’s first gas station also opened here, 111 years ago. Back then, even with only a few cars on the road, demand for gasoline was increasing and it made sense to build a fuelling station to support a growing network of automobiles.”

“The same is true today: infrastructure must be in place to support FCEV rollouts, and HTEC is proud to be working with our partners to build the first wave of H2 refuelling stations in Canada, starting here in BC.” HTEC’s President and CEO Colin Armstrong enthused.
