Three new hydrogen refuelling stations for London

ITM Power has won a contract to supply three electrolyser-based refuelling stations under the HyFive project announced by the Mayor of London’s Office.

The contract is worth approximately £2.8 million to ITM Power and brings the total value of product build under contract to £6.6m.

The three CE marked rapid response grid balancing stations will be the first green hydrogen deployments in London and are expected to be operational in time to coincide with the roll out of fuel cell electric vehicles planned by the major vehicle manufacturers, likely to be in 2015.

Prof Roger Putnam CBE, non-executive chairman, of clean hydrogen fuel supplier ITM Power, said: "ITM Power is delighted to be part of this exciting pan-European project, delivering three new green hydrogen refuelling stations which will be deployed in London.

"These three new stations will form part of three European regions deploying six new 700bar hydrogen refuelling stations and incorporating 12 existing stations in the project.

"The fuelling station networks will offer hydrogen as a genuine fuelling choice for end users. Working with other partners in the project, Air Products, Linde, OMV and the Copenhagen Hydrogen Network, will stimulate the network density required for full commercial roll-out of hydrogen refuelling and FCEVs."
