H2 MOBILITY Deutschland and its shareholders Shell and Air Liquide have jointly opened the Hanseatic city’s fourth H2 filling station at the Großmoorbogen Shell Station in Hamburg-Harburg.

The new hydrogen station in Harburg features intuitive operation by the driver and a refuelling process similar to that of conventional vehicles. The facility holds around 200 kilograms of H2 – enough to refuel 50 vehicles a day.

There are now 79 H2 filling stations in Germany, and next year the network will grow to 100 stations, after which expansion will be continued in line with demand. At present, there are already 30 hydrogen filling stations in the Shell network in Germany.

The expansion’s focuses include the metropolitan regions of Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Rhine/Ruhr and Rhine/Main as well as the key connecting roads. Hamburg already has H2 filling stations in Hafen-City, on Schnackenburgallee and on Bramfelder Chaussee.

The new Großmoorbogen H2 station is funded by the European Commission in the trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T CEF) as part of the Connecting Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (COHRS) project.
