H2 Logic to supply hydrogen refueling station for Hamburg

5 February 2014

H2 Logic has won a competitive tender exercise on the supply of a Hydrogen Refueling Station for Hamburg from a major infrastructure provider in Germany. The station will be based on the 70 MPa H2Station CAR-100 product from H2 Logic and will include onsite electrolysis production.

The customer will use the station to gain experiences on the use of hydrogen production for balancing and storage of renewable electricity in Germany.

The new hydrogen refueling station in Hamburg will be owned and operated by a major German infrastructure provider and is to be part of a planned 50 station network in the country by 2015. The network will be a first step in a planned continued roll-out of up to 400 stations in Germany onwards 2023, as part of the previously announced €350-million (US$473-million) H2Mobility Germany initiative.

Besides supporting the advanced market introduction plans of fuel cell electric vehicles from major car manufacturers, the station is also to expand experiences on use of hydrogen production at refueling stations for balancing of the increasing share of fluctuating renewable electricity in Germany.

The H2Station technology is used for hydrogen refueling of fuel cell electric vehicles from major car manufacturers with refueling stations already in daily operation in several European countries. The CAR-100 provides fast refueling of more than 500 km (311 miles) range in 3-4 minutes and is designed to enable both trucked-in and onsite electrolysis production of hydrogen from renewable electricity.

The hydrogen refueling station is supported by the German NOW Programme.

Hurry hydrogen cars and stations. This website is better than autobloggreen as there is less hydrogen naysayers here. I always said to do hydrogen by water electrolisis at the point of sale. This is the future and im interrested to buy. If they don't open hydrogen stations here in montreal canada then i might move in germany when my actual car will be worn-out.

It seems obvious that installing a network of H2 stations and using clean Wind an Solar energy is a lot less costly than fighting Oil Wars and using polluting ICEVs.

Germany, Norway, Denmark, Holland, and a few other EU countries may become clean H2 leaders.

FCEVs may have a bright future, specially for extended range personal vehicles and large long range buses, trucks, locomotives etc.

@Gorr:
Plenty of hydrogen stations being built here in the UK too, and you would avoid the inconvenience of learning German!

H2 and quick charger stations will be progressively installed worldwide and nobody will have to move to benefit.

Gorr lives in an area with plenty of clean Hydro/Wind low cost electricity. Stations will be installed as soon as electrified vehicles and FCEVs arrive. It will be a new 'golden' business opportunity for whoever has the vision and funds required.
