Uno-X Hydrogen AS has been awarded a grant of NOK 19.8 million (US$2.45 million) from the Norwegian public enterprise Enova SF for an expansion of the Norwegian hydrogen network with one hydrogen production facility and two hydrogen fueling stations in Bergen.
Enova SF is a Norwegian public enterprise responsible for the promotion of environmentally friendly production and consumption of energy. The awarded funds will be allocated towards establishing two centrally located hydrogen fueling stations at Danmarksplass and Åsane, two of the busiest areas in the Bergen region, as well as an electrolyzer for the production of renewable hydrogen for the two stations.
Uno-X Hydrogen AS is a joint venture, owned by Uno-X, Nel and Praxair with 41%, 39% and 20%, respectively. The joint venture is building a network of hydrogen refueling stations, where fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) can operate between all the major cities in Norway. The stations will be deployed in cities like Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Kristiansand, along with corresponding corridor locations. The target is that FCEVs can drive between the most populated cities in Norway within 2020.
