Two new hydrogen stations open in Germany


Joint venture H2 Mobility Deutschland has opened two new hydrogen stations in Germany with its shareholders Shell and Air Liquide.

North Rhine-Westphalia’s ninth and tenth stations were opened in Leverkusen and Essen. The new hydrogen station in Leverkusen was built using technology supplied by Air Liquide. Its location, the Shell filling station at Karl-Krekeler-Strasse 2, is conveniently located near the Leverkusen motorway junction, just 500 metres from the A3 slip road.
