On Friday 11 March a hydrogen refulelling station (HRS) was inaugurated in Rotterdam (The Netherlands), as part of the CEF Transport funded MEHRLIN project.
This project aims to demostrate a new demand-led commercial model for the deployment of hydrogen refueling stations by carrying out a test of the economies and practicalities of operating large hydrogen refueling stations.
It has deployed 7 large hydrogen refuelling stations in Hürth, Wermelskirchen-Koln, Wuppertal (Germany), Bolzano (Italy), Rotterdam (the Netherlands) and London and Birmingham (the UK).
More than 70 hydrogen fuel cell buses operate in these locations and use the refuelling stations. The zero-emission buses have been funded by three different EU projects supported by the Clean Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (3Emotion, JIVE and JIVE 2).
Daily operations are currently being monitored to gather technical and economic feedback to improve operations and financing options in light of a further roll out across Europe of zero emission buses.
