English Español Sinopec, Air Liquide open two hydrogen stations in Shanghai

Shanghai gets its first combined commercial petrol and hydrogen fuel station.

Last update:

China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation and French company Air Liquide opened two hydrogen stations on November 18 in Shanghai. They are the first stations in China to provide combined commercial gas and hydrogen fuel services.

The two hydrogen stations are part of the first project jointly signed by Sinopec and Air Liquide, which will make Shanghai a leader in hydrogen energy and further support the development of the 'Hydrogen Corridor'.

Each site is equipped with two gasoline tanks, two diesel tanks and four hydrogen tanks, as well as two 12-pump fuel dispensers, two four-pump 35MPa hydrogen dispensers and a reserved 70MPa hydrogen dispenser.

Equipped with the world's most advanced technologies, the two combined gas and hydrogen fuelling stations have a daily capacity of 1,000 kilograms to serve public transportation, logistics and passenger vehicles. Each station can fuel 100 cars a day. A full tank can be provided in 4-6 minutes per vehicle, providing a driving distance of 300 to 400 kilometres.

According to the midterm goal of "Shanghai Fuel Cell Vehicle Development Plan," the city will complete 50 hydrogen stations by 2025. To achieve this, Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical will utilize the land from 580 existing gas stations to fast-track the introduction of a new generation national network of stations covering urban roads and highways.
