PitPoint invests in High V.LO-City hydrogen refuelling station in Antwerp

Antwerp is one of the demonstration sites in the FCH JU funded High V.LO-City project, which aims at facilitating the deployment of fuel cell electric buses and their related hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in four European cities. The refuelling station in Antwerp has been in operation since the 1st December 2014. It is a non-public fuelling station with Flemish public transport operator ‘De Lijn’ as its dedicated customer. The station is currently refuelling De Lijn’s five fuel cell electric buses on a daily basis. The hydrogen, an industrial by-product from chlorine production via electrolysis, is delivered to the refuelling station by Air Liquide through a pipeline. The refuelling station, which is currently located in the port of Antwerp, will eventually be moved to De Lijn’s bus depot in Antwerp to ensure a smoother daily operation of the buses. For PitPoint this investment is an important next step to realise its mission of clean transport by 2030.
