Logan Energy has announced ambitions to create up to 100 new skilled jobs in Scotland through a strategic relationship with sustainable fuel specialist Element 2.
Logan Energy will design, build, and operate hydrogen refueling stations on sites established by Element 2, which plans to deploy over 800 pumps across the UK by 2027 and 2,000 by 2030.
The top national provider of design and development services for hydrogen refuelling infrastructure, the company based in Scotland was picked for its track record of success.
Logan Energy’s present workforce will be tripled as a result of the agreement, with up to 70 new employment created over the following two years and further posts added by 2025.
Bill Ireland, CEO of Logan Energy, said: “This collaboration offers Logan Energy the opportunity to use its industry experience to deliver the widespread hydrogen infrastructure sorely needed across Scotland and the rest of the UK. Scotland has a long and successful relationship with hydrogen energy that is unparalleled. We have the expertise to deliver renewable technologies at pace and this programme will help create dozens more skilled opportunities for those looking to work in the hydrogen sector. Our partnership with Element 2 underlines our growth plans in the UK for the coming decade and will provide confidence for potential investors looking to support the drive to net zero.”
Tim Harper, CEO of Element 2, said: ”This collaborative partnership with Logan Energy is another step toward our goal of building the UK’s hydrogen refuelling infrastructure. We are a pure-play retailer of hydrogen, so harnessing Logan’s expertise and experience of refuelling systems supports our growth plan. Collaborations like this, ensure we remain ahead of schedule and ready to supply hydrogen as soon as demand arises. We are proud to support the UK’s net zero targets. More partnerships and further collaborations will follow in the coming weeks and months; this is an incredibly exciting time for the growth of hydrogen in the UK.”
