Today, a new hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) opened in Heinenoord, the Netherlands. The HRS started dispensing green hydrogen to a fleet of 20 hydrogen fuel cell buses that are co-funded by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership as part of the JIVE 2 project.
The station was made possible thanks to a close collaboration between the province of South Holland, the municipality of Hoeksche Waard, Connexxion who operates the buses and Everfuel who built and operates the station.
The station has the capacity to accommodate 50+ fuel cell buses in a redundant set-up. It can also be scaled up to accommodate fuelling of other fuel cell vehicles such as trucks in the future. This is a major step in the energy transition in the province of South Holland, where the aim is to provide zero-emission public transport by 2030. Everfuel will be supplying the station with green hydrogen produced at sites in the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark for a minimum of 12 years.
