First German hydrogen network station opens in Bremen
Together, Daimler, Shell and Linde have inaugurated the city of Bremen’s first hydrogen filling station.
The new hydrogen filling station has been developed by Daimler and installed at a Shell forecourt, with technology provided by Linde, and offers a refuelling option to travellers between Hamburg and North Rhine-Westphalia.
The site is located at Osterholzer Heerstraße 222 directly off the Sebaldsbrück motorway exit and the Bremen interchange, and is also near the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen, the company said, where the new generation of Mercedes-Benz fuel-cell vehicles will be produced including the GLC F-CELL – that combines fuel-cell and battery technology to form a purely electric plug-in hybrid.
The three companies plan to build a hydrogen infrastructure across Germany, where they foresee hydrogen playing an important role in the country achieving its climate goals – thanks to emissions at a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle being only water and emissions producing the gas significantly reducing CO2, thanks to the use of renewable energy.
