In an opening ceremony attended by Climate and Environment Minister Vidar Helgesen and Colonial Major Odd Reitan the ribbon was cut on Uno-X's new hydrogen station in Sandvika, Bærum.
The new hydrogen station will have a capacity up to 200 kg of hydrogen per day. This is equivalent to "full tank" for 50 cars, also by the spring of 2017, a good proportion of the hydrogen will be produced using electricity from solar cells.
Uno-X aims to open an additional 19 hydrogen stations by 2020. Reitan Group's fuel company Uno-X will market and sell hydrogen from 20 of its outlets by 2020. The JV Uno-X Hydrogen AS build hydrogen stations for Uno-X. This company is owned by Uno-X (41%), Praxair (20%) and NEL Hydrogen (39%)
Uno-X Group's CEO, Vegar Kulset said "Once all of these stations are completed, we will be able to drive hydrogen cars between the country's major cities. Over the coming years, several hydrogen vehicles will come to market, and we want to contribute to the hydrogen car establishing itself as an alternative for Norwegian car buyers".
