New hydrogen filling station in Limburg

  • More than 800,000 EUR funding from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) within the framework of the National Innovation Program for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NIP)
  • Further important milestone in the construction of hydrogen infrastructure
    in Germany

Berlin/Limburg an der Lahn, January 26, 2017 – Air Liquide, acting as part of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP), has taken a major step forward in the expansion of the nationwide hydrogen
(H2) infrastructure, and today completed the construction of a new public H2 filling station in Limburg an der Lahn, in the German state of Hesse. The construction and operation of the Air Liquide station on Brüsseler Strasse is being supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure with more than 800,000 EUR. The H2 station is currently undergoing final internal testing, and will start up regular operations in about six weeks.

With sites in Frankfurt-­Höchst, Offenbach am Main and Limburg, Hesse now has three public filling stations for hydrogen. The new station in Limburg, close to the A3 motorway, closes the busy corridor between the Rhine-­Ruhr and Rhine-­Main metropolitan regions. By 2018/19, about 100 hydrogen filling stations are to be built in Germany, to complement the market introduction of fuel-­cell vehicles. Air Liquide will be inaugurating further H2 filling stations in Baden-­Württemberg, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-­Westphalia and Rhineland-­Palatinate in the months ahead.

The new Air Liquide filling station in Limburg has a daily capacity of 200 kg of hydrogen and can fuel as many as 40 fuel-­cell vehicles per day. The refuelling process takes only three to five minutes, and the average range of the filled vehicles is 500 km.

Thorsten Herbert from Germany’s National Organisation for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology says: “The cooperation between industry and politics under the NIP has made it possible to set up and test a nationwide hydrogen infrastructure. More than 25 hydrogen filling stations are already completed as of today. This means that we have achieved significant growth within the past year.”

The existing filling stations already ensure supply in the metropolitan regions of Berlin, Hamburg, Rhine / Ruhr, Stuttgart and Munich: more than 6 million people are already reached with the service stations currently in operation.
