ix35 fuel cell gets new Hydrogen fuel station

OWNERS of Hyundai’s ix35 Fuel Cell, the only hydrogen fuel cell car on sale in the UK, can now fuel at a new hydrogen station, one of the world’s greenest gas stations.

It's the latest new station to be opened as part of the government’s £6.6m hydrogen infrastructure investment strategy,

The ultra-green site is located in the North of England just off the M1 motorway near Sheffield, it uses a wind turbine and water supply to create hydrogen fuel, is completely self-sufficient and is advanced in terms of construction.

The site which will serve a large area, is open to the public and is capable of producing enough hydrocarbon for 16 fuel cell cars in one 24-hour period.

Situated on The Advanced Manufacturing Park within easy reach of Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster, the site consists of a 225kW wind turbine coupled directly to an electrolyser, 220kg of hydrogen storage, a hydrogen dispensing unit and the site is even capable of providing backup power for nearby buildings.

Other high-tech facilities are located in Hendon, Heathrow and Swindon and plans will also see two new stations in the Greater London area, a new mobile refuelling station for the south of England and upgrades to existing stations in Swindon, Wales and London.
