Linde AG, Air Liquide SA, Daimler AG, OMW AG, Total SA's Total Deutschland GmbH and Royal Dutch Shell PLC's German Shell Holding Agree on Construction of Hydrogen Refuelling Network in Germany

Monday, 30 Sep 2013 07:06am EDT 

Linde AG (Linde) announced that the six partners in the 'H2 Mobility' initiative, Air Liquide SA, Daimler AG, Linde, OMV AG, Royal Dutch Shell PLC's German Shell Holding and Total SA's Total Deutschland GmbH, have set up upon a specific action plan for the construction of a nationwide hydrogen refuelling network for fuel cell-powered electric vehicles. By the year 2023 the current network of 15 filling stations in Germany's public hydrogen infrastructure shall be expanded to about 400 H2 filling stations. As a first step the deployment of 100 hydrogen stations in Germany over the next four years is intended. This would ensure a need-related supply for fuel cell-powered electric vehicles to be introduced into the market in the next years. An agreement in principle has been signed by representatives of all the partners involved. In addition to plans for a nationwide filling station network, the agreement includes the principles for the procurement and distribution of the necessary hydrogen and a request for support to the German Federal Government. Following the foundation of a joint venture (subject to necessary regulatory approvals), gradual expansion of the national filling station network will commence next year. The 'H2 Mobility' initiative expects that a total investment of around EUR 350 million will be required for this project. The launch of fuel cell-powered production vehicles on the German market has been announced by first manufacturers for 2015.
