H2 View understands the stations will be located along major motorways, offering a vital component to expand hydrogen mobility for trucks, while promoting the use of emissions-free transport in Sweden.

As part of the cooperation, Swedish service station chain for truck, Rasta will build 23 of the 24 hydrogen stations at its locations.

The cooperation is being financed by investments from Qarlbo and Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Leap programme which looks to support local and regional initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Maximator has said it has already started production of the 24 stations, with plans to deliver the first system in the autumn of 2023, with all remaining stations expected to be delivered by the end of 2025.

The company has said the systems will be equipped with the latest and highest efficiency compressor generation technology, dubbed, MAX Compression 2.0, which it says can offer fuelling to fuel cell or hydrogen combustion vehicles at high pressure.

Commenting on the contract, Mathias Kurras, Managing Director of Maximator Hydrogen, said, “Our top priority is to actively shape the mobility revolution by providing the necessary infrastructure. So, we are excited to have REH2 as a partner. Together, we intend to promote and further expand sustainable and low-emission transport routes in Sweden.”
