TotalEnergies and H2point open Dutch hydrogen refuelling station
In Roosendaal, the Netherlands, TotalEnergies and H2point opened a brand-new public hydrogen refueling station on Thursday, June 29.
The station, which is close to the A7, offers 350 bar of hydrogen for heavy-duty vehicles and 700 bar of hydrogen for passenger cars and other light vehicles. There are also four 330kW fast EV charging stations.
The station is a component of TotalEnergies’ planned network of hydrogen stations, which is now being expanded throughout Europe. It has received financial backing from the Dutch Government and the European Union.
Additionally, it is anticipated that the station will be included in the recently announced joint venture with Air Liquide, which seeks to build over 100 hydrogen refueling stations on major European thoroughfares, with a particular emphasis on France, Benelux, and Germany.
US corporation orders 16 hydrogen refueling stations from Nel Hydrogen
A definitive order for the provision of 16 hydrogen refueling stations from an unnamed US energy company has now been received by Nel Hydrogen Inc, a subsidiary of Nel ASA. The order comes after the capacity reservation agreement (CRA) from December 2022, which was previously disclosed.
Nel ASA estimates that the order will cost about $24 million in total, which includes the previously disclosed reserve agreement charge of about $7 million. The inclusion of installation support, commissioning services, and service and maintenance contracts has resulted in a rise in the total contract value since the CRA announcement in December 2022.
Hy24 adds managing director
Guillaume Lesueur, the former Head of EDF Pulse Ventures, has been chosen as the managing director of Hy24, a private investment company that specializes in the clean hydrogen industry, to oversee a new investment effort targeted at technology and equipment manufacturers.
By making investments along the whole clean hydrogen value chain, Hy24, a joint venture created in 2021 by FiveT Hydrogen and Ardian, is dedicated to the expansion of a worldwide hydrogen ecosystem. Clean Hydrogen Infrastructure, or the “Infra Fund,” is Hy24’s inaugural fund, and it aims to develop the hydrogen infrastructure sector. Four investments have already been made by the Infra Fund, which has so far raised €2 billion.
