Grenoble– HRS , European designer and manufacturer of hydrogen refueling stations, announces the first order for an HRS14[1] hydrogen station outside Europe, from a Saudi Arabian developer.

With considerable renewable energy production potential in both wind and solar power, and a strong desire to position themselves as leaders in the energy transition, through a number of ambitious national development plans, the countries of the Middle East demonstrated their commitment at COP28 by investing massively in the deployment of green hydrogen production infrastructures.

Hydrogen mobility will play a significant role in the decarbonization trajectory of this region of the world, in both public and private transport, presenting significant economic opportunities for HRS.

The HRS14 station, ordered by this national energy company, a major player in the region, will supply a planned fleet of 20 buses and light vehicles from July 2024. The companies intend to communicate further once the station has been installed in the second half of 2024.

This first station to be sold outside Europe marks a decisive step in HRS‘s strategy of international development in high-potential zones, particularly in the Middle East, where numerous commercial opportunities have been identified. HRS aims to play a major role in this fast-growing market, using its technological and industrial expertise to meet the growing needs of players in the region.


Hassen Rachedi, CEO and founder of HRS, commented: “This first sale outside Europe is a crucial step in our international growth strategy. The order for our HRS station from a major Middle Eastern energy company demonstrates our ability to deploy our hydrogen refueling solutions in just a few weeks, even outside Europe. The considerable commercial opportunities in this region mean we can look forward to potential future sales of larger capacity stations to support the deployment of hydrogen mobility, in fostering of the energy transition.”
