Woikoski’s fueling site is already being tested with a company-owned Hyundai ix35, registered as WOI-1. Currently, trials showed that a tank filled to the brim with hydrogen translates into a range of roughly 600 km. Moreover, many car manufacturers are planning to introduce hydrogen fuel cell cars to the consumer market in 2015.
The car and the innovative fueling station are just a part of the investments for hydrogen. During summer 2014, a new hydrogen plant will be started up at Kokkola Industrial Park and, at the same time, Woikoski will take modern hydrogen transport units into service.
