The Rhineland to get two new hydrogen stations next year


Contracts have been signed for the construction of two new hydrogen (H2) refuelling stations in the Rhineland, Germany.

The stations will be developed for Regionalverkehr Köln GmbH (RVK) in 2019. One on its premises in the Rhine-Sieg district (Meckenheim) and one in the Rhine-Bergisch district (Wermelskirchen).
