Air Products has announced the sale of a hydrogen fueling station to Hyundai Motor Company Australia (HMCA). The fueling station will initially be used to fuel a Hyundai ix35 hydrogen-powered zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle, the first hydrogen-powered car to be imported into Australia.
The hydrogen fueling station, which will be located at HMCA’s offices in New South Wales just outside of Sydney, is currently undergoing commissioning and is scheduled to begin to demonstrating the benefits of hydrogen-based, zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle technology in Australia.
“Since we work with Hyundai at other locations around the world by providing hydrogen mobile fuelers in the U.S. and are leasing a Hyundai FCEV Tucson in Europe, we are thrilled to be working with Hyundai in Australia so they can fuel and showcase their vehicle and its benefits first-hand. We continue to develop our relationships with Hyundai and other vehicle manufacturers to highlight the benefits of hydrogen as a clean fuel, and the benefits of fuel cell electric drive trains as a zero emission automotive propulsion system at locations around the world,” said Chris Kretz, business development manager for Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products.
