Under the High V.LO-City project (the FCH-JU bus project that precedes 3Emotion), PitPoint clean fuels and QBuzz launched the new hydrogen refuelling station for the Groningen site today (22nd February 2018).
The hydrogen refuelling station has been built and will be operated by PitPoint clean fuels. AkzoNobel will supply PitPoint with hydrogen by pipeline. The hydrogen is a by-product from AkzoNobel’s chlorine production, produced sustainably by electrolysis, using electricity produced from wind energy. The hydrogen is therefore renewable and green, which is unique for the Netherlands. The refuelling station is located at the Chemie Park in Delfzijl, right next to the Akzo Nobel production plant. The Delfzijl refuelling station is PitPoint’s second hydrogen refuelling station development in Europe.
The refuelling station will service the two fuel cell electric buses currently operated between Delfzijl and Assen by Dutch bus operator QBuzz.
The launch of the station is paving the way towards the deployment of more fuel cell electric buses in the north east of the Netherlands.
