Growing H2 Infrastructure But Not All Stations Operational

After one hydrogen filling station had each been installed in Wuppertal and Ulm in summer 2016, another three went into operation last fall. As reported previously (see Three New Hydrogen Filling Stations), the H2 pump at the Metzingen gas station south of Stuttgart came online on Sept. 23. Five days later, however, it had to be shut down again when a truck hit it. Its trailer had been caught in the pump, resulting in at least EUR 60,000 in damage.

Offenbach am Main had better luck: On Nov. 10, Air Liquide and Hyundai jointly inaugurated the first public H2 filling station there. Installed on the local premises of the South Korean carmaker, the station has a daily capacity of 200 kilograms of hydrogen, which can be used to fill up the tanks of around 30 vehicles per day. It is French business’s second installation set up under the auspices of the CEP in Germany. Its construction and operation have been subsidized by the German federal transportation ministry with more than EUR 1 million. Other filling stations are planned to be operational within the next months, for example, in Bad Rappenau at the A6/A81 freeway, in Limburg at the A3, in Wolfsburg, in Düsseldorf and in Cologne.

Based on current planning, Germany should have around 100 H2 filling stations up and running between 2018 and 2019. In mid-December 2016, however, only 14 of the 25 existing locations were operational, with some of them having been shut down for maintenance. Asked about the situation, CEP replied: “The systems in Offenbach and Münster are operational and they have been approved by the TUV, but not by all carmakers yet. This process is sometimes more time-consuming than the construction of the refueling station itself.”

H2 Mobility plans until 2018

Nikolas Iwan, managing director of H2 Mobility Germany, announced during the World of Energy Solutions that at the end of 2016, he would present a plan on H2 Mobility’s activities over the next two years. He and his team, which has meanwhile grown to 14 staff, intend to guarantee the reliable planning and operation of additional filling stations and remove existing market hurdles. He did not want to continue the long history of unfulfilled expectations and be held to his two-year schedule instead.

    We will be coming back to this statement:
    Quote:
    “…Nikolas Iwan, managing director of H2 Mobility Germany, announced during the World of Energy Solutions that at the end of 2016, he would present a plan on H2 Mobility’s activities over the next two years. He and his team, which has meanwhile grown to 14 staff, intend to guarantee the reliable planning and operation of additional filling stations and remove existing market hurdles…!”
    End of quote…

    That leaves Nikolas and his team with just 330 days.
