ITM Power announced the extension of its UK hydrogen refueling collaboration agreement with Shell, which was originally announced on 10 September 2015. The new agreement will run until 2024, and covers the refueling of all types of hydrogen vehicles; from passenger cars to commercial vehicles, including buses, trucks, trains and ships.
Currently ITM Power operates two hydrogen refueling stations (HRS) at Shell service stations at both Shell Cobham on the M25 and Shell Beaconsfield on the M40. Four further HRS are funded.
The HRS at Shell Gatwick is under construction and will be opened later this year; Shell Derby will also follow in 2019, with two further London stations also planned. The UK hydrogen refueling station network has been jointly funded by the UK’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles and the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking.
