Nel Hydrogen A/S, a Danish subsidiary of Norway-headed hydrogen technology provider Nel ASA (Nel), has announced that it has received a purchase order from Netherlands-headed renewable fuel filling station operator OrangeGas BV for the delivery of multiple H2Station units for fueling of predominately light-duty fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) in the Netherlands.
Founded in 2009, OrangeGas was initially focused on developing a network of compressed biomethane (bioCNG) filling stations in the Netherlands. The company has currently 80 filling stations in the Netherlands and 52 in Germany. In addition, OrangeGas has also started preparations for building filling stations in Sweden and Belgium, alongside its plans for the continued growth of biogas filling locations.
The renewable fuel portfolio had been expanded to include renewable diesel (HVO 100), liquefied biomethane (LBG or bioLNG), and electric chargers while future plans include ED95 and hydrogen.
We are pleased to have signed this contract with Nel. These robust and state-of-the-art hydrogen stations allow us to refuel hydrogen vehicles in only five minutes in a safe, fast and reliable way. In OrangeGas we are committed to contributing towards a cleaner planet, and this is an important step on that journey. Nel has extensive experience within hydrogen fueling technologies, and we are looking forward to a good collaboration going forward, as we now build the first wave of hydrogen refueling stations, said Marcel Borger, CEO, and founder of OrangeGas.
The contract has a total value of approximately EUR 3 million and also includes service and maintenance contracts. The stations will be located in the Netherlands and will expand the fueling coverage for hydrogen-powered light-duty, and in the future also heavy-duty cell electric vehicles. The H2Station units will be delivered during 2020.
We are delighted to be chosen as supplier for OrangeGas for their first fueling stations which will predominately serve light-duty vehicles in the Netherlands. We look forward to assisting OrangeGas with the deployment of the hydrogen fueling coverage, helping the transition towards zero-emission transport in the Netherlands, said Jens Egholt Rasmussen, Global Sales Director for Nel Hydrogen Fueling.
