With the commissioning of the 50th public hydrogen refueling station on Friday, the partners H2 MOBILITY, Linde and TOTAL celebrated an important stage in the development of hydrogen mobility in Germany. In the presence of Lord Mayor Jann Jakobs, representatives of the European Commission, the Federal Government and the Brandenburg state government, the station in southeastern Potsdam was inaugurated. In addition to a 700-bar dispenser for cars, a device for an optional 350-bar dispenser for bus refueling is also pre-installed at the station.
Jann Jakobs, Lord Mayor of Potsdam: "The state capital of Potsdam is part of the federal German map of hydrogen mobility - and thus takes a big step forward for an emissions-free mobility of the future."
The technology for the new hydrogen plant at the TOTAL petrol station in Potsdam comes from Linde and enables the refueling of around 40 vehicles per day. The owner and operator is the joint venture H2 MOBILITY, in which the companies Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde, OMV, Shell and TOTAL have joined forces. The first goal of the partners is the operation of 100 stations in seven German conurbations (Hamburg, Berlin, Rhine-Ruhr, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Stuttgart and Munich) and along highways until 2019. With the ramp-up of the number of fuel cell vehicles further 300 hydrogen filling stations will be added.
