Nel Hydrogen receives first H2Station order for Canada
Nel Hydrogen A/S, a subsidiary of Norway-headed Nel ASA has announced that it has received an order for the delivery of an H2Station fueling station from Hydrogen Technology & Energy Corporation (HTEC). The H2Station will be installed in Vancouver, British Columbia (BC) and will help expand the growing hydrogen fueling network for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in Canada.
HTEC is designing and building hydrogen fuel supply solutions to support the deployment of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). Partnering with government, industrial gas companies, key equipment suppliers, automotive companies, and energy companies, HTEC is delivering safe, reliable, convenient, sustainable and low-cost hydrogen (H2).
Nel looks forward to collaborating with HTEC on expanding the fueling coverage in Canada by providing our H2Station equipment for an HTEC hydrogen fueling station in Vancouver. Canada is increasing the efforts on hydrogen, both with regards to policies and infrastructure and vehicle deployments. We are therefore excited to deliver our first H2Station® for this important and growing market, said Jens Egholt Rasmussen, Global Sales Director, Nel Hydrogen Fueling.
In 2018, HTEC opened the first retail hydrogen refueling station in Canada and is now actively planning and building additional stations in Vancouver and Quebec, in collaboration with key retail operators. These efforts support initiatives by international car manufacturers to deploy FCEVs in the regions, backed by governmental policies.
The H2Station, the value of which has not been disclosed, will be installed during 2020 at a conventional retail fueling station in the Vancouver area.
Infrastructure must be in place to support FCEV rollouts. HTEC is excited to integrate Nel’s H2Station fueling equipment into a station in our BC refueling network. Nel has extensive experience deploying their technology in other markets and we are looking forward to collaborating again in the future as we build the first wave of hydrogen refueling stations in Canada, said Colin Armstrong, CEO, HTEC.
