HyGear have signed a agreement with Rijngas in The Netherlands for the supply of hydrogen to a fuelling station in Amsterdam that is operated by Orangegas.
This hydrogen fueling station is one of the first in Amsterdam and the sixth station in the country. As the world is moving towards a cleaner environment, there have been a significant pick up in the automotive industry. More hydrogen fueling stations are being built to support the increasing number of hydrogen fuel cells vehicles on the road.
The hydrogen will be supplied by HyGear’s production site located in Arnhem by trailers where it will be transfiled into an on-site storage at the fueling station.
“HyGear is glad to be part of the growth of the hydrogen energy economy. This was the initial plan where the company was built on and will continue to move towards this direction of a greener environment.”Niels Lanser chief commercialofficer HyGear.
“Rijngas is a highly service-oriented company that knows how to create clear added value for its customers. The basic product of Rijngas is LPG and propane. Through a very constructive collaboration with HyGear, a transition to hydrogen is currently being implemented. The importance of hydrogen for Rijngas will only increase.
“The opening of this hydrogen station is in line with the ambition of OrangeGas to become one of the largest hydrogen providers. OrangeGas is currently working on ten projects including hydrogen filling stations in Leeuwarden, Utrecht, Zwolle, and several locations in Drenthe,”Norbert Romijn, director of Rijngas.
