Air Liquide Japan has opened hydrogen stations in Kasugai Katsugawa and Kita-Nagoya Yamanokoshi over the last month.

The openings are part of a government plan which aims to have 200,000 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) on the roads and 320 stations by 2025.

The station is located in the Aichi Prefecture, an area which has 1,100 hydrogen vehicles and 25 station, one of the largest numbers in the country along with Tokyo.  

Air Liquide sees growing demand in the area. The stations have also been conceived with expandability in mind, so that it can refuel commercial vehicles, such as taxis, buses and trucks in the future.

The Kasugai Katsugawa station has been created as a joint project between Air Liquide Japan and Japan H2 Mobility, LLC (JHyM). It will be the fifth station jointly operated by these two companies.
