The Quebec government is continuing its hydrogen program by investing in the construction of a second hydrogen refueling station in the Montreal-Quebec city corridor.
A call for proposals for the construction of a new supply station was recently published by Transition l’énergie Québec (TEQ).
The very first public hydrogen refueling station, installed in a service station on Wilfrid-Hamel Boulevard, in Quebec, cost $ 5.2 million, more than half of which was funded by TEQ ($ 2.9 million) and Natural Resources Canada ($ 1 million).
The cost of the new station has not been made public.
For this pilot project, the Quebec government has leased a new Nexo fuel cell vehicle made by Hyundai. This vehicle will join the other 50 Toyota Mirai’s that the government leased in July of 2019.
TEQ, Mathieu Payeur said, “At this time, I would not see the opportunity to have more vehicles, but it is not excluded either.”
