Herning, Denmark – Everfuel A/S today assumed ownership and operation of the hydrogen fueling station at Hvam, northeast of Oslo, Norway, as the first of two fueling sites acquired in November 2020.
This is Everfuel’s first hydrogen station in Norway and an important step in realizing the company’s green hydrogen fueling strategy for trucks, buses, and cars connecting the main traffic corridors in Scandinavia.
The Hvam station has in recent weeks been tested and customers are now invited to take part in continued testing of various systems including payment solutions and data transfer the next few weeks. This means the station is open to supply green hydrogen, but with a potential for temporary reduced availability.
“We are very pleased to start supplying hydrogen for zero-emission mobility to our customers in Norway. The hydrogen stations at Hvam and Åsane are the first of several planned for the Norwegian market and confirmation our commitment to being at the forefront of the green transition and a leader in connecting safe hydrogen production, distribution, and fueling,” says Jacob Krogsgaard, the CEO of Everfuel.
Delivery of fully approved and certified stations by the seller has been delayed throughout 2021 due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. Everfuel and the seller is working to towards hand-over of the second station at Åsane, near Bergen, in the third quarter, subject to Covid-19 restrictions, final approvals and the seller delivering a fully functional station. The delivery of the Hvam station triggers the financial close of the acquisition of the two hydrogen fueling stations and associated distribution assets in Norway from H2CO AS, an Uno-X owned company.
