Fuel cells works, Shell Opens Its First Operational Hydrogen Filling Point in the World for Intercity Buses for Groningen Drenthe Public Transport Agency

This is Shell’s first operational hydrogen filling point for buses in the world. Shell built the subsidy-free hydrogen filling point for the Groningen Drenthe public transport agency. In addition, Shell supplies the green-certified hydrogen that can be refueled there. The hydrogen filling point is available for 20 Qbuzz hydrogen buses.

“Hydrogen is real pioneering. For example, we use certified green hydrogen here, until we can produce green hydrogen ourselves. We regularly test the filling point to ensure that it functions as optimally as possible,” says Lisa Montanari, Hydrogen Commercial Manager at Shell Netherlands. “We started building even though the market and infrastructure for hydrogen are still in their infancy.”

The hydrogen filling point was opened by Groningen deputy Fleur Gräper – van Koolwijk, Gerrit Spijksma, director QBuzz and Lisa Montanari, Hydrogen Commercial Manager Shell Nederland.

Hydrogen buses offer a solution for the longer distances of regional transport. Refueling takes about 10 minutes and with a full tank of 25 kilos of hydrogen, the buses can cover about 400 kilometers. The only emission coming from the exhaust of the bus is water vapor.
