Everfuel receives grant for two hydrogen stations in Sweden
The first Everfuel station in Sweden is expected to open later this year in Trelleborg.
Everfuel Sweden AB has been awarded two grants totalling ~SEK 45 million for two hydrogen refuelling stations in the Värmland region, Sweden.
The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency awards the grant under the Climate Leap (Klimatklivet) investment program as partial financing for the stations.
The stations will be established in cooperation with the local unit of OKQ8 as part of Evefuel’s ongoing collaboration with the leading Scandinavian operator of service stations.
Some of the main traffic corridors in Sweden run across Värmland, connecting the cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Karlstad. The main road between Oslo in Norway and Stockholm also crosses the region, a major hub for the forest industry; and therefore relying on heavy trucking.
The two stations are part of the company plan of installing about 15 refuelling points by the end of 2023. The Swedish network will comprise sites developed by Everfuel in cooperation with partners such as OKQ8, and under the partially EU funded Nordic Hydrogen Corridor initiative developed in collaboration with the project partners Statkraft, Toyota, Hyundai and Hydrogen Sweden.
Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, said, “Everfuel and our Swedish partners share the same ambition of accelerating the transition to zero-emission transport.”
Meanwhile, Everfuel GmbH has been preliminary informed about the planned award of a contract by a German public organisation in North Rhine-Westphalia to provide a hydrogen refuelling station for heavy-duty vehicles. The agreement includes a refuelling station and associated services for a minimum contract period of 10 years. The station is planned to be operational in 2023. The parties have agreed not to disclose the contract value.
