After a long period of rebuilding and scrutiny by the certification body and the Rescue Service in Gothenburg, Hynion has finally been given the green light to operate the hydrogen station in Gothenburg. On Monday, 12/12, the station in Ruskvädersgatan opens for trial refuelling, and the official opening is on 20 December. Hynion's station in Gothenburg will significantly contribute to better mobility for hydrogen vehicles in Scandinavia.
"With this, Hynion follows its strategy of opening hydrogen stations in and around the largest cities in Scandinavia," says Ulf Hafseld, CEO of Hynion. "When this station opens, mobility for hydrogen motorists will be greatly boosted not only in southern Sweden but also in Scandinavia. With Hynion's stations in Oslo, Stockholm and Sandviken, cars with a range of 600 km+ will immediately have a much larger radius of action. Furthermore, driving to the continent through Denmark will be significantly easier for cars based in the Oslo region," continues Hafseld
This is a happy day for the people of Gothenburg who can now use hydrogen as a zero-emissions alternative, both as private drivers, but also for commercial transport," says Slavica Djuric, CEO of Hynion Sweden AB. "Hynion has for a period assisted Renova with hydrogen for testing their hydrogen-powered waste disposal vehicles, but from next week they can be refuelled regularly at the station," continues Djuric.
To ensure good development for the hydrogen users in Gothenburg, Hynion will establish station no. 2 in the city in the GREATER4H project, which is part-financed by the EU. The station is expected to be ready during the first half of 2024, making it possible to use hydrogen in heavier vehicles. It is being built to serve the expected increase in truck traffic on the Hamburg - Oslo route, but it will also supply local and domestic traffic.
"Together with Hynion's upcoming stations in Västerås, Jönkøping and Malmö, as well as the imminent reopening of the station in Porsgrunn in Norway, the mobility of those who want to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by driving on hydrogen fuel will increase significantly. With this network of stations, hydrogen can become a relevant choice for more and more people. And with Hynion's plans to establish up to 30 stations over the next few years, hydrogen users can look forward to improved zero-emission mobility," concludes Ulf Hafseld.
