Shell and H2 MOBILITY Germany commissioned another hydrogen filling station at the Wesseling Shell station at Ahrstrasse 99.
Partners Shell and H2 MOBILITY Germany commissioned the filling station at the Wesseling Shell station at Ahrstrasse 99. Drivers of zero-emission fuel-cell passenger cars now have another refuelling option in the Cologne area.
The station is conveniently located on the A555 in the Wesseling industrial zone on the direct route from Cologne-Bonn. It complements the focus region, where hydrogen (H2) refuelling options already exist in Cologne-Frechen and at the Cologne-Bonn Airport.
The company responsible for building and operating the hydrogen filling station is H2 MOBILITY Deutschland, a key player in driving forward the expansion of the hydrogen infrastructure in Germany.
The filling station technology at the new H2 filling station comes from the technology and gas company Linde and is state of the art.
Hydrogen offers the possibility of expanding the fuel supply in the transport sector in a climate-friendly way, because hydrogen – especially if it is produced using renewable sources – can help to significantly reduce climate-damaging CO2 emissions.
Operating a hydrogen-powered fuel-cell vehicle causes neither local pollutants nor carbon dioxide emissions. The advantage of hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles: short refuelling times for long ranges.
The additional station reaffirms Shell’s commitment to the hydrogen business. The company intends to become a leading provider of green H2 for industrial and transport customers.
Among other things, Shell operates a 10 MW PEM electrolysis for the production of green hydrogen plant at the Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Rheinland in the immediate vicinity of the filling station.
For the construction of the hydrogen station in Wesseling, H2 MOBILITY Germany received funding of at least €950,000 under the National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Innovation Programme (NIP) of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Digital and Transport (BMDV).
