The first hydrogen fueling station in the Port of Amsterdam has become operational. The new OrangeGas facility, which only offers clean fuels, is located on the Australiëhavenweg, along the A5 motorway and is open 24/7. In addition to hydrogen, bio-CNG, electricity and liquid CO2, the filling station will also add later bio-LNG and HVO100.
“It’s incredibly cool that the hydrogen station in Amsterdam is now open. This filling station also offers other clean fuels. With this station we are perfectly in line with Amsterdam’s zero-emissions policy,” said Joyce van Os de Man, Director Benelux at OrangeGas.
The municipality of Amsterdam is one of the customers of the new hydrogen station. Together with seven other port companies, their ambition is to have 20 vehicles running on hydrogen within two years. There are also taxis and private individuals that are already running on hydrogen. In addition, there is a great deal of interest from the transport and construction sectors in switching to hydrogen-powered trucks. More hydrogen stations will follow soon in the port.
In order to achieve a climate-neutral society in 2050, “we will need not only sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind energy, but also bio- and synthetic fuels and hydrogen. This hydrogen station is one of the many initiatives in which Port of Amsterdam is playing a role by facilitating and/or investing,” says the port’s press release.
