On Saturday, construction began on the second phase of the Yanqing Hydrogen Industrial Park, which will be built in the Yanqing competition zone for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing.
At the 2022 Olympic Games, the mountainous Yanqing District in Beijing will host the Alpine skiing, skeleton, bobsleigh and luge competitions.
The first phase of the Park was the Yanqing Hydrogen Refueling Station, which was completed and placed into service last year after passing the safety production evaluation. It has a daily hydrogen fueling capability of 500 kilogrammes, enough to operate 30 to 50 hydrogen fuel buses on a daily basis.
The second phase of the project entails the construction of a hydrogen production facility as well as a R&D platform for the relevant technologies currently in operation. The facility would have a potential daily production capacity of 2,800 kg, which will enable 150 hydrogen fuel vehicles to be demonstrated during the Winter Olympics.
