Herning, Denmark and Trelleborg, Sweden–In cooperation with Trelleborg Municipality, Everfuel will start hydrogen refueling in Sweden.
The agreement with Trelleborg Municipality and Trelleborg Energy AB is the first signed contract in Everfuel’s ambitious plan of rolling out hydrogen refueling stations in Sweden. The agreement is the first of eight potential stations in the Nordic Hydrogen Corridor project, which is co-financed by the European Union’s CEF-program.
Trelleborg Municipality plans for green future, with a city in continuous growth, fueled by hydrogen. Through an implementation of a fleet of hydrogen vehicles, Trelleborg Municipality paves the way for establishing a hydrogen station in the city. With Trelleborg’s strategic position in Sweden, there is a promising market potential, as an expected 750 000 heavy duty vehicles will be passing through the city per year.
The Municipality has made a firm commitment to a daily off take increasing to 120 kg per day. The partners have a joint ambition to make Everfuel’s hydrogen the preferred zero-emission solution in Trelleborg, and together grow the market to 500 kg per day within five years of operation.
”We consider Sweden as one of our home markets, and we are proud to assist Trelleborg in their ambitious plans to become a greener city, and do our part to make them reach zero-emission. We are now moving from the drawing board to action, and the structure of the station in Trelleborg will be easily applicable to other stations. Trelleborg is a starting point for the scale-up, and we are committed to lead the role-out of solutions at scale for hydrogen production, distribution, and fueling to end-customers” says Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO at Everfuel.
“I am trilled and very proud that Trelleborg Municipality is the first one out in this project. This is one of the steps that Trelleborg takes in the total shift of technology and new solutions that we all have to be part of to meet the future in a sustainable way” says Mikael Rubin Mayor/ Municipality chairman of the municipal board of Trelleborg
“It feels wonderful to go from power-point into action when taking the first step to implement hydrogen as an enabler towards a greener Trelleborg” says Magnus Sahlin CEO, Trelleborgs Energi AB.
“This is a very important milestone in the Nordic Hydrogen Corridor project as well as in the Swedish roll-out of hydrogen refueling stations. It’s the first new station in our second phase of hydrogen infrastructure for transport and it’s in perfect timing for the updated EU-directives for clean vehicles and alternative fuels. It’s great to see how cities like Trelleborg put hydrogen as one important brick in the creation of a more sustainable society” says Björn Aronsson CEO Hydrogen Sweden.
The station in Trelleborg is a part of Everfuel’s ramp-up phase of the announced plan to invest EUR 1.5 billion in developing the green hydrogen value chain in Europe and reach EUR 1 billion of revenue from sale of hydrogen fuel to buses, trucks, and cars before 2030.
