New hydrogen refueling stations link north and south Germany

FRANKFURT, Wiesbaden — The JV H2 Mobility Deutschland and its partners Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde and Shell officially opened two new hydrogen refueling stations today in Frankfurt and Wiesbaden. The German federal state of Hesse now has a total of five H2 filling stations for emission-free fuel cell vehicles.

The new sites are both conveniently located directly on the A661 and A66 motorways at key points of intersection for people driving from north to south through Germany.

H2 Mobility commissioned the new hydrogen station in Frankfurt's Hanauer Landstrasse 334 while Daimler AG is the owner of the filling station in Wiesbaden’s Borsigstrasse 1. The H2 handling technology hails from two of the big names in this sector: Air Liquide respectively Linde. Both stations are located on Shell premises.

Overall, the German government has invested some EUR 1.6 MM in the two new stations. By 2018, there should already be 100 stations. The cornerstone for the expansion of Germany’s hydrogen infrastructure was laid by the demonstration project Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) which set out joint standards and norms.

It takes between three to five minutes to fill up a fuel cell vehicle. Both stations have the capacity to serve 40 FCEVs every day.

At present, Germany has another 27 hydrogen stations in the pipeline or under construction. This year, for example, H2 Mobility and its partner companies are due to unveil filling stations in Kassel, Bremen and Wendlingen. And more are planned for the Stuttgart, Karlsruhe and Munich areas.
