New hydrogen fueling station, delivered by H2 Logic, was inaugurated in Esbjerg. With the new station hydrogen fueling is now also offered in the fifth largest city and the most western part of Denmark – further underlining the status as the world’s first countrywide hydrogen station network.
The station is placed at a conventional fueling station operated by OK and located in the city center right next to the highway connecting Esbjerg with the eastern part of Denmark.
The hydrogen station in Esbjerg will be used by Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles delivered to various local users, among others the City of Esbjerg.
The Esbjerg station is operated by Danish Hydrogen Fuel A/S (DHF), a joint-venture between the oil company OK, gas company Strandmøllen and H2 Logic. DHF now operates four hydrogen fueling stations in Denmark.
Hydrogen for the Esbjerg station is delivered from a central electrolyser plant operated by Strandmøllen and based on technology from the H2 Logic sister company NEL-Hydrogen. The entire Danish hydrogen station network is based entirely on hydrogen produced from electrolysis and electricity procured with CO2 certificates. This ensures a 100% sustainable and zero emission hydrogen supply – the highest share in the world for an entire station network.
The Esbjerg station, as well as the remainder of the Danish network is based on H2Station® technology from H2 Logic that provides 70MPa fast fueling in accordance with international standards. H2Station® technology has a long proven track-record of reliable operation and is used on a daily basis in several European countries.
The hydrogen station in Esbjerg is supported by the Danish Energy Agency in the H2DK project.
