Denmark’s Everfuel As, has announced today (29th March) that it commenced installation works on its green hydrogen fuelling station near the HC Orsted Power Station Denmark, Copenhagen, Demark.
The hydrogen fuelling station will be its second high capacity in Copenhagen. The capacity will be fully expanded from its initial medium level once demand rises. Everfuel also applied for permits to install the station. Once all goes according to the plan, the station is expected to come online in late Q2 2021.
Everfuel has signed a long-term land lease agreement with Orsted for the site. In January 2021, Everfuel inked a contract with Orsted for the offtake and distribution of green hydrogen from a production facility at Avedore. The agreement was signed as Orsted announced its final investment decision for the H2RES project’s electrolyser facility with a 2 MW capacity, producing up to around 1,000 kg/day of renewable hydrogen with the expected start-up in late 2021.
Last week Everfuel also started working on its first high capacity hydrogen fuelling station in Copenhagen, which is expected to be operational in July 2021. It is also looking for additional sites in the Copenhagen area for its high capacity H2 stations installation.
When the two new H2 stations are fully operational, Everfuel will have 800-1,000 kg/day of 350 and 700 bar pressurised hydrogen dispensing capacity in Copenhagen to supply hydrogen to heavy-duty vehicles such as trucks and buses.
Jacob Krogsgaard, the CEO and founder of Everfuel, said, “Demand for green hydrogen for zero-emission mobility is increasing, and our two existing H2 stations in Copenhagen have operated above 100% utilisation for most of the past month.”
Currently, Everfuel is serving hydrogen-powered taxis in Copenhagen with two older generation hydrogen filling stations with limited capacity on terminated land-leases which it plans to relocate.
