Fuel card provider Allstar Business Solutions has signed a contract with ITM Power to allow its fuel cards to be accepted at the company’s network of hydrogen refuelling stations.
ITM Power currently has four vehicle hydrogen stations in the UK, with another five planned. The global hydrogen generation market is set to grow nearly 6% by 2021.
Allstar's cards will also continue to be accepted at stations offering traditional vehicle fuels operated by other companies.
Rebecca Markillie, marketing manager and PA to the CEO at ITM Power, said:“We approached Allstar after we received a request from a large public-sector organisation.
"Its employees already used the fuel cards routinely, and wanted to be able to use them to refuel its growing fleet of hydrogen vehicles. We were more than happy to support our customers in this way.
“This new partnership with Allstar will go a long way towards helping us grow the ITM Power network, making our company even more attractive to the burgeoning number of fleet operators managing alternative fuel fleets.”
Paul Holland, chief operating officer at Fleetcor, the parent company of fuel card solutions provider Allstar, added: “By teaming up with alternative fuel providers like ITM Power, Allstar can ensure it is doing everything it can to continue to support fleet operators as they evolve their fleets to suit their changing business needs and, importantly, improve choice for customers.”
