ITM Power introduced its first access hydrogen refuelling station in London at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington. Opened by the Transport Minister, Andrew Jones MP, the station is supported by Toyota and fellow automotive manufacturer members of the European HyFive consortium. The station is the first out of three to be opened in the UK as part of the pan-European HyFive project.
Andre Jones MP said: We are committed to making all cars and vans zero-emission by 2050, and hydrogen vehicles have a huge role to play in delivering cleaner, greener journeys. The new refuelling station at Teddington is just one of 12 stations opening up this year, backed by £5 million of government funding that will make it easier for more people to switch to this exciting new technology.”
Toyota PLC President and Managing Director, Paul Van der Burgh said: “The opening of ITM Power’s new filling station is an excellent example of how a coordinated hydrogen fuel infrastructure is successfully being developed in the UK with backing from the HyFive consortium. We are pleased to continue our support for the wider provision of hydrogen fuel outlets, which will encourage increased customer uptake of zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cell vehicles such as the Toyota Mirai saloon.”
The group at ITM Power and BOC Linde are to commission and open a further four electrolyser-based refuelling stations in and around London before the end of 2016.
