An explosion at a hydrogen filling station on Monday has left fuel cell vehicle drivers running dry in a part of Norway. Nel has closed down ten more stations until the causes of the explosion are identified.

Norwegian media reports that around 17:30 an explosion took place at a the Uno-X station in Sandvika near Oslo. Only minor injuries were reported, according to elective.com.

“It is too early to speculate about the cause. Our top priority is the safe operation of the stations we supply. As a precaution, we have temporarily closed ten more stations until further information is available,” said Nel boss Jon André Løkke.

They inaugurated the station in November 2016 as the first of a new generation of filling stations developed by Nel.
