Shell harnesses Linde hydrogen technology


Linde plays an invaluable role in Shell’s journey towards a ‘hydrogen society’.

Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH, has just opened its first demonstration hydrogen station in Germany. Located on the premises of Shell’s Sachsendamm service station in Berlin, the installation is equipped with innovative refuelling technology from Linde. The hydrogen dispensed comes from a linde pilot plant in Leuna which uses crude glycerol as feedstock.

Olaf Reckenhofer, responsible for Linde’s gases business in Germany, Austria and Switzerland remarked, “The highly efficient cryo-pump system developed by Linde makes this installation the top performing hydrogen refueling station in the world. Together with the certified green hydrogen supplied by us, this is a trail-blazing fuelling concept that will bring us forward on the road to sustainable transportation.$quot;

The demonstration facility constitutes part of Shell’s research and development programme for hydrogen technology and was created within the parameters of the Clean Energy Partnership. The partnership was designed to evaluate technology and learn lessons about costs, consumer behaviour, safe hydrogen as well as its dispensing.
