English Español Bennett chosen for first hydrogen fuel site in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Aramco and Air Products have teamed-up to build the first retail hydrogen fuelling station in Saudi Arabia, which will use Bennett Hydrogen Fuel Dispensers.

Last update:

The station, set to open in the second quarter of 2019, will feature Air Products’ proprietary SmartFuel hydrogen fuelling technology to supply vehicles with compressed hydrogen through Bennett Dispensers. The site will collect information that will be used in future hydrogen fuel cell applications in the region. Toyota Motor Corporation will supply Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Vehicles for testing in this project.

“Hydrogen fuel cells offer an effective means for the electrification of transport while maintaining easy, 5 minute refueling and long driving ranges,” said Chief Technology Officer of Saudi Aramco, Ahmad O. Al Khowaiter.

“We are honored to work on another venture with Saudi Aramco to establish and develop a sustainable hydrocarbon-based hydrogen supply system,” said Executive Vice President at Air Products, Dr. Samir Serhan.

Saudi Aramco is the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a fully integrated, global petroleum and chemicals enterprise.
