Drivers of fuel-cell vehicles can now also refuel in Leipzig. Today, the partners H2 MOBILITY, Linde and TOTAL inaugurated the region’s first hydrogen service station at the TOTAL truck stop in Poststraße. This closes another major gap in the H2 network along German highways.
The development of the H2 infrastructure in Germany is making good headway: Today, the first hydrogen filling station in Saxony was inaugurated at the TOTAL service station in Dresden on Wiener Straße. Dresden is one of the first 50 hydrogen (H2) service stations in Germany and an important contribution to enable eco-friendly electromobility for fuel cell vehicles. The new hydrogen facility was built by H2 MOBILITY with support from the European Union. Stefan Brangs, State Secretary in the Saxon State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labor and Transport, was able to announce a further step in the expansion of the hydrogen network during the ceremonial first filling of a fuel cell vehicle: In Leipzig, the next hydrogen service station has already been completed at the TOTAL truck stop in Poststraße.
With the launch of the 50th public hydrogen service station, partners H2 MOBILITY, Linde and TOTAL celebrated an important stage in the development of hydrogen mobility in Germany. In the presence of representatives of the European Union’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), the German federal government, the government of the federal state of Brandenburg and the city of Potsdam, the station in Horstweg in the southeast of Potsdam was ceremoniously inaugurated. Alongside a 700-bar pump for cars, a facility for an optional 350-bar pump for filling up buses has been preliminarily installed at the station.
