Hydrogen technology specialist, Logan Energy, has been chosen as the preferred partner to supply two of the first publicly-accessible hydrogen refuelling stations in Teesside, United Kingdom, in a £2.25 million project that will allow cars and vans to be powered by this fuel.

In a company-first, Edinburgh-based Logan Energy will supply fuel-cell hydrogen for vehicles in addition to delivering and operating two new hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS) designed to meet increasing local demand.

The initial four-year contract is part of an UK Government project, funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles’ (OLEV) Hydrogen for Transport Fund, which aims to deliver five new hydrogen refuelling stations across the UK.

Of the five refuelling stations funded by OLEV, a joint proposal from the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority, the Materials Processing Institute, and Northern Gas Networks successfully bid £1.3 million to have two located across Teesside.

“Tees Valley has a long and successful relationship with hydrogen energy that is unparalleled across the UK. It is an ideal location to demonstrate a viable, renewable hydrogen supply-and-demand scenario that has the potential to be replicated not just regionally but in towns and cities throughout the UK, Europe and further afield,” said CEO of Logan Energy, Bill Ireland.

Earlier in 2020, Logan Energy opened the first public hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) for vehicles in Scotland’s Central Belt. The company hopes to extend its work further as both the network of HRS and number of hydrogen-fuelled vehicles increases across the Tees Valley and the UK.
