Shell Partners with GM for Hydrogen Station

July 17, 2009

NEW YORK CITY - Shell opened its second hydrogen filling station in the greater New York City area July 14 at JFK international airport. Shell partnered with General Motors, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the U.S. Department of Energy to open this latest station.

A third station in the Bronx, due to open late in July, has been developed with the New York City Department of Sanitation. A station has been operating in the City of White Plains, N.Y., since April 2008.

The cluster of stations will provide New York drivers of hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles with greater flexibility and convenience, and is a significant step on from stand-alone, demonstration stations and is part of Shell's strategy to build expertise in the distribution and dispensing of hydrogen.

"The prospects for hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles are strong in the longer-term", said Duncan Macleod, Shell vice president of Hydrogen. "This first cluster is an important step as we continue to build capability in retailing hydrogen fuel, in line with the auto makers' plans to develop hydrogen vehicles."

The three hydrogen stations in New York are within approximately 30 miles of each other, according to Shell.
