Marking a major milestone for the city’s zero-emissions vehicle fleet, Nel Hydrogen Fuelling said it has received an order for several of its H2Station™ modules from HysetCo to support light-duty vehicles in the region.

A hydrogen mobility pioneer, HysetCo already owns what is believed to be the world’s largest fleet of hydrogen-powered taxis in the capital city, operated by Hype.

Now, focused on the infrastructure side of things, the company has confirmed plans to operate approximately 20 hydrogen stations by 2024 – and today’s announcement is a key aspect of this.

Martin Pfandl, Sales and Business Development Director EMEA at Nel Hydrogen Fuelling, said, “We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen as supplier for hydrogen fuelling station equipment by HysetCo and are looking forward to support HysetCo’s efforts in developing the hydrogen mobility infrastructure in France.”

The installation of the H2Station™ modules are partly funded with the support of the public-private partnership the Clean Hydrogen Partnership, formally the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).

Nel believes the stations will be operational by 2022.
