Nel Hydrogen Fueling, a subsidiary of Nel ASA, has received a purchase order from Everfuel A/S (EFUEL) for the delivery of a H2Station® fuelling station for a fleet of taxis in Aarhus, Denmark.

“We are very happy to continue our collaboration with Everfuel and to take part in building out further infrastructure for hydrogen in Denmark. There is a huge potential in using hydrogen as fuel for fleets of both light- and heavy-duty vehicles and we are excited to work with Everfuel to extract learning from the installation of the station in Aarhus” says Jens Egholt Rasmussen, Senior Director Global Sales, Nel Hydrogen Fueling.

The H2Station®will be installed in Aarhus during 2022 and will be used as a prototype for a movable station solution to serve light duty vehicles and as a demo for fuelling of heavy-duty vehicles. The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the contract.

“We are excited to further expand the hydrogen infrastructure in Denmark based on fuelling technology from Nel. The station will be a prototype of a moveable station, which is an important step to reduce installation time and costs to make hydrogen commercially competitive. This prototype of the Everfuel moveable station will take us in the right direction by reducing both installation time and costs for civil works. The location in Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus, will support the city’s fuel cell taxi fleet, and we look forward taking yet another step in decarbonising transportation” says Jeppe Mikkelsen, the COO of Everfuel.
