12.03: R-GDS inaugurates Europe's 47th hydrogen station in Strasbourg (FR)

On Tuesday 12 March 2024, R-GDS inaugurated the first public hydrogen fuelling station for light vehicles, vans and HGVs in Strasbourg-Meinau, the first of its kind in the Grand Est region. 

Strasbourg's first hydrogen fuelling station is located at 78 rue de la Plaine des Bouchers, in Strasbourg-Meinau. It has a dual-pressure 350 bar and 700 bar station for light vehicles and a large-capacity station for buses and HGVs.

The station is designed to deliver up to 700 kg of hydrogen per day, equivalent to the daily refuelling of 30 buses, or 70 light commercial vehicles, or 150 light vehicles. It also has a refuelling point for pressurised hydrogen cylinders, known as "tube trailers", for transporting hydrogen to remote points of use.

Initially supplied with hydrogen from conventional sources, the station will soon be connected to a local green hydrogen production unit, offering users a 100% carbon-free fuel.

Supported by R-Hynoca, a subsidiary of local gas distributor R-GDS, the project is receiving €500,000 in funding from the European Union through the H2ME2 programme, a consortium dedicated to the development of hydrogen mobility in EU member states.

R-GDS is participating in the Green SKHy project as an associated organisation.
