Hyundai Oilbank will open hybrid service station in June, which can fill a variety of vehicle fuels including gasoline, diesel, LPG, as well as alternative fuels such as hydrogen and electricity.
The hydrogen charging infrastructure is being built in the idle space between the existing fuel service station and the LPG charging station on the 5000-square-meter site in Yeonam-dong, Buk-gu, Ulsan, and negotiations for the installation of the electric charger are in the final stage.
So far, gasoline / diesel, LPG, LPG and hydrogen have been sold at fuel service stations at the same time, but this is the first time to sell all types of vehicle fuel in one place. Hyundai Oilbank's hybrid energy station will open the doors for automobile users who use alternative fuels, and hydrogen cars and electric cars will be popularized in the future. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced plans last year to supply 350,000 electric cars and 15,000 hydrogen cars to Korea by 2022.
Ulsan Metropolitan City is the local government that is most active in expanding the charging infrastructure in line with the government's policy of expanding electric cars and hydrogen cars. Currently, two hydrogen filling stations are in operation in Okdong and three hydrogen fuel service stations are scheduled to be completed this year, including the Hyundai Oilbank complex energy station. Ulsan will bring five of the nation's 19 hydrogen fuel service stations to be completed by this year.
A Hyundai Oilbank official said, "We plan to expand the construction of complex energy stations in consideration of demand and economy in the center of the nation's major cities." We will also actively promote related businesses with local governments and the automobile industry. " PWKD13042018
