Aberdeen Hydrogen will open its doors to the public as part of Climate Week North East.
Located on Langdykes Road in Cove, the facility will open its doors to the public for 2 tours on 26th March 2020 as part of Climate Week North East (Friday 20th-Sunday 29th March 2020 – https://sustainablescotlandnetwork.org/events/climate-week-north-east )
The £2.6million station serves the city’s expanding fleet of cars, vans, waste trucks, and a road sweeper and is funded by Aberdeen City Council, ERDF, Transport Scotland and NESTRANS. It was built and is maintained and operated by Hydrogenics and local company NORCO. This is part of the Aberdeen City Council Hydrogen Strategy – H2 Aberdeen.
ACHES has four electric recharging points and the potential to produce 130kg of hydrogen per day. Enabling fast refueling, hydrogen is dispensed at 350 bar and 700 bar pressure. “There are plans around hydrogen for heating, fleet and infrastructure development, as well as training and supply chain engagement. Hydrogen provides an opportunity to diversify the local economy while contributing to greenhouse gas reduction targets and improving local air quality, as pure hydrogen vehicles emit only water, so the positive impact for the city is significant”.
You will receive a short presentation on arrival, followed by a tour of the facility by NORCO staff.
Tours are available on 26 March 2020 from: 5-6pm and 6-7pm. The tour is open to over-18s only. The maximum capacity is 10 people per tour.
