The Swedish Energy Agency is providing SEK61.4m ($5.8m) as a grant to Hynion for the stations, which will have a capacity of 1,500kg of hydrogen per day and will be built to facilitate the hydrogen-fuelled trucks that will now be phased in.

“This is an important step forward for hydrogen for the transport sector,” said Slavica Djuric, CEO of Hynion Sweden. “We now see clear actions from the Swedish authorities that they are serious about introducing hydrogen for heavy transport, which makes us very optimistic about the development.

“These two stations are located in central logistics hubs which mean a lot to the transport companies that now will convert to zero emissions. Cars will of course also be welcomed!”

Ulf Hafseld, CEO of Hynion AS, spoke of the growing network of hydrogen stations across Sweden as a whole, adding, “Together with our stations in Sandviken, Stockholm and Gothenburg, we are forming a network that will allow the roll-out of hydrogen to accelerate.

“Now, it will soon be possible to travel between large and important cities in Sweden on hydrogen, and we look forward to welcoming the trucks to our stations. It is also exciting to see that Sweden takes a leading role in paving the way for the use of hydrogen for heavy transport.”
