Everfuel starts hydrogen refuelling in Sweden
It is an important milestone in the Nordic Hydrogen Corridor project and in the Swedish roll-out of hydrogen refuelling stations.
Everfuel will start hydrogen refuelling in cooperation with Trelleborg Municipality Sweden.
Everfuel has signed a contract with Trelleborg Municipality and Trelleborg Energy AB, the first signed contract in Everfuel’s plan of rolling out hydrogen refuelling stations in Sweden. Everfuel plans to build eight potential stations in the Nordic Hydrogen Corridor project, co-financed by the European Union’s CEF program.
Trelleborg Municipality plans to support hydrogen refuelling infrastructure given its strategic position in Sweden, where there is a potential that around 750k heavy-duty vehicles will be passing through the city annually.
The Municipality has made a firm commitment to a daily off-take increasing to 120 kg/day. The partners have a joint ambition to make Everfuel’s hydrogen the preferred zero-emission solution in Trelleborg and together grow the market to 500 kg/day within five years of operation.
The station in Trelleborg is a part of Everfuel’s ramp-up phase of the announced plan to invest € 1.5 billion in developing the green hydrogen value chain in Europe and reach € 1 billion of revenue from the sale of hydrogen fuel to buses, trucks, and cars before 2030.
Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO at Everfuel, said, “Trelleborg is a starting point for the scale-up, and we are committed to lead the role-out of solutions at scale for hydrogen production, distribution, and fueling to end-customers.”
Mikael Rubin Mayor/ Municipality chairman of the municipal board of Trelleborg, said, “I am thrilled and very proud that Trelleborg Municipality is the first one out in this project.”
Magnus Sahlin, CEO of Trelleborgs Energi AB, said, “It feels wonderful to go from power-point into action when taking the first step to implement hydrogen as an enabler towards a greener Trelleborg.”
Björn Aronsson, CEO of Hydrogen Sweden, commented, “It’s the first new station in our second phase of hydrogen infrastructure for transport and it’s in perfect timing for the updated EU-directives for clean vehicles and alternative fuels.”
