NETHERLANDS Ballast Nedam is to build its first 700-bar hydrogen refuelling station, for the Flemish- Dutch WaterstofNet.

The installation will be built as part of the cross-border ‘Hydrogen Region Flanders-Netherlands’ Interreg IVA programme, and suitable for a wide range of hydrogen-fuelled vehicles introduced onto the market.

The facility will be Ballast Nedam’s first 700-bar hydrogen refuelling station in the Netherlands and the company will be responsible for its maintenance for two years. The current number of hydrogen refuelling stations in Europe is heading towards 25, mainly in Germany and Scandinavia. It meets with the latest hydrogen-fuelled passenger vehicle communication standards and cooling requirements for complete and safe refuelling.
