The station is expected to start operations in 2018
Air Liquide Japan proposes to unveil the first ever permanent hydrogen (H2) station in Kawasaki City, which is expected to conclude construction work in March 2018 and roll out in April 2018.
Apart from a mobile station, the H2 station is the first to be built in the city, which will be subsidized by METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan), in addition to the municipal government of Kanagawa Prefecture. It is anticipated that the new station would become one of the important places for development of H2 mobility, including fuel cell buses in the area.
As a model station for further development in installation of H2 stations, the proprietary solution will help reduce construction time and costs, allowing H2-powered electric vehicles to recharge in three minutes.
From production to storage and from distribution to the development of applications for end users, Air Liquide masters the entire H2 supply chain, contributing to the widespread use of hydrogen as a clean energy source, for mobility in particular.
The Group will have installed nearly 100 H2 stations around the world, by the end of 2017. Source : Gasworld PWKD09112017
