OrangeGas receives 2.6 million subsidy for Hydrogen Amsterdam and Utrecht
OrangeGas was awarded a DKTI subsidy worth 2 million last week for the realization of hydrogen filling stations in Amsterdam and Utrecht. Together with the previously granted Benefic grant, the total amount awarded amounts to 2.6 million.
In addition to exploiting the clean fuels Green gas, electricity, HVO100, and liquid Co2, green hydrogen will be added to the OrangeGas range. The hydrogen stations are planned at the existing OrangeGas locations where other clean fuels are currently available. The plans for Amsterdam are in the western port area and for Utrecht in the Lage Weide business park. Both locations are made suitable for large vehicles (350 bar) and passenger vehicles (700 bar).
OrangeGas has great ambitions in the further development of sustainable fuels. “We want to realize another 5 to 10 hydrogen filling stations in the coming 5 years, including in Leeuwarden, Zwolle and a second location in Amsterdam. In collaboration with AC Adviseurs, we have been awarded the subsidies and can take the first steps. ”Said Marcel Borger, director and founder of OrangeGas.
The announced locations are not the first hydrogen projects in which OrangeGas will be involved. There is already a collaboration with Jan Paul Kerkhof from BP Kerkhof in The Hague, where the hydrogen filling station will be opened in October. OrangeGas is the retail partner for this project and the initiative and investment is with Jan Paul Kerkhof.
