On April 24, 2020, Japan Air Liquide LLC opened its hydrogen hydrogen station for fuel cell vehicles (FCV) in Kitanagoya City, Aichi Prefecture.
The site area of ”Air Liquide Kitanagoya Yamanokoshi Hydrogen Station” is about 1,200 square meters, and it has a supply capacity of 300N cubic meters per hour hydrogen supply. The location is 300 meters east of the Itsukaichi intersection on Route 22, and it is conveniently located near the Ichinomiya Nishiharu entrance of the Nagoya Expressway Ichinomiya line, and will be used for commercial vehicles such as taxis, buses, and trucks in the future.
According to the action plan based on the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s “Hydrogen / Fuel Cell Strategy Roadmap”, the goal is to spread 200,000 FCVs and open 320 hydrogen stations by 2025. Among them, Aichi Prefecture is making various efforts toward the realization of a hydrogen society that utilizes hydrogen as energy in daily life and industry, and the opening of this time is positioned as part of that.
As of the end of February this year, 1,100 FCVs and 16 hydrogen stations have been installed in Aichi Prefecture, which is an important area where further spread is expected. We are investing in this area to improve customer convenience. The station is conveniently located near the Route 22 and Ichinomiya Nishiharu Ichinomiya exit of the Nagoya Expressway Ichinomiya Line, and in the future it may be possible to supply hydrogen fuel to commercial vehicles such as taxis, buses, and trucks. I put it in.
“Air Liquide Kitanagoya Yamanokoshi Hydrogen Station” is a hydrogen station jointly maintained by Japan Air Liquide and Japan Hydrogen Station Network GK (JHyM). The two companies will jointly operate the fourth location, and the third in Aichi Prefecture. Also, with JHyM, we plan to newly establish three stations in Aichi Prefecture this year.
The station uses a system that combines our standard compressor and accumulator in one package. By adopting this package system, it is possible to deliver in a short amount of time when constructing a new station.
When constructing the station, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s “hydrogen station maintenance subsidy to promote the spread of fuel cell vehicles” and the Aichi prefecture “hydrogen station maintenance subsidy” are used.
The “Air Liquide Kitanagoya Yamanokoshi Hydrogen Station” will be open on weekends, reflecting the feedback from FCV users, and will contribute to the improvement of customer convenience. We hope that it will be used by everyone in the surrounding area in filling hydrogen into FCVs, which is expected to become even more popular in the future.
