Tsuruga City in Fukui Prefecture, Japan and Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS) announced that the H2One Station Unit has started opening in Tsuruga City, which is the first launched hydrogen station in the Hokuriku region.
The H2One Station Unit made by Toshiba ESS is a system which produces hydrogen using electric power generated by renewable energy and supplies hydrogen to fuel cell vehicles. The system is capable of producing enough hydrogen for eight hydrogen fuel cell vehicles per day in three minutes at the fastest speed.
Tsuruga City and Toshiba ESS have been studying about the construction of a supply chain in the city. Following H2One—a one-container model—the H2One Multi Station will start operation for supplying green electricity to electric vehicles and to Tsuruga City’s public wholesale market.
