Drivers of electric cars with fuel cells can soon refuel in Bremerhaven. H2 MOBILITY Germany has now announced the location of a hydrogen filling station for Bremerhaven: the station will be integrated into the Shell petrol station at the Bremerhaven-Wulsdorf motorway exit, Frederikshavner Str. 97; the technology comes from the company.

“For us, it is a great success that our flagship project of bringing a hydrogen refueling station to Bremerhaven for our region is becoming a reality,” says a delighted Claas Schott, chairman of the “Hydrogen for the Bremerhaven – H2BX” association. The involvement of H2BX also convinced H2 MOBILITY Germany. Within just four weeks, members were able to collect more than 40 written declarations of intent and support from the city and region. Individuals, institutions, businesses, cities and towns officially declared their intention to purchase hydrogen vehicles.

Ideal location for hydrogen technology

The association H2BX has engaged in information events and talks at all levels for a hydrogen infrastructure for the region of Bremerhaven. “For many years, the city has been at the forefront of renewable energies and on course to become a city of the climate,” says Claas Schott. “The hydrogen refueling station fits exactly into the timetable.” Bremerhaven is the regional center for the region between Bremen, Cuxhaven, Oldenburg and Hamburg. In addition, Bremerhaven is a logistics location of national importance, which is excellently connected to the supraregional transport network via the motorway 27 and the future coastal motorway 20. An ideal prerequisite for the future location of the hydrogen refueling station at Shell Autohof Wulsdorf, in whose selection H2 MOBILITY Germany and the association H2BX have worked together. “If you want to fill up on hydrogen, you benefit from the fast connection to the motorway,” explains Claas Schott. In addition, the Autohof is in close proximity to the business park Bohmsiel, the fishing port and the planned sustainable business park for the Green Economy.

Other hydrogen stations are already available in Bremen, Stuhr, Hanover and Hamburg and soon in Oldenburg (all stations on www.h2.live).

Hydrogen as fuel

“Hydrogen and fuel cell technology is an ideal solution for pollution-free mobility,” says Claas Schott. Hydrogen vehicles come to ranges of 500-800 kilometers with virtually no noise and pollutants and can be refueled within just three minutes. “Likewise, the technology can be integrated into numerous other systems across sectors, from building services to industrial applications,” adds Claas Schott. With the upcoming gas station, there is no reason not to invest in the new technology now, says the H2BX chairman. “The way for the hydrogen in Bremerhaven is free.”

H2BX – Hydrogen for the region Bremerhaven eV

The association H2BX – Hydrogen for the Bremerhaven region is committed to the promotion of hydrogen fuel cell technology and would like to anchor this future technology in Bremerhaven and the Weser Elbe triangle. The more than 60 members, from private individuals to companies and research institutions to municipalities, are committed to this goal.

To locate a hydrogen refueling station in Bremerhaven was the first major lighthouse project of the association, which is now approaching a successful realization. In addition to further information events, H2BX is now aiming for further research projects around the energy source hydrogen. In close cooperation with Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences and various partners, research into renewable energy production, on-site storage as well as concrete practical application of hydrogen and fuel cell technology, eg in logistics and shipping, is to be researched.
