- Everfuel receives $4.7M grant for two H2 stations in Sweden
- Everfuel’s H2 station roll-out plan targets up to 15 strategically positioned refueling points by the end of 2023
Everfuel A/S (Oslo: EFUEL) announced that its subsidiary Everfuel Sweden AB had been awarded two grants totaling approximately SEK 45 million ($4.7M) by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency as partial financing for two hydrogen refueling stations in the Värmland region.
The stations will be established in cooperation with the local unit of OKQ8 as part of Evefuel’s ongoing collaboration with the Scandinavian operator of service stations.
The two Värmland sites will be part of Everfuel’s H2 station roll-out plan targeting up to 15 strategically positioned refueling points by the end of 2023. The Swedish network will comprise sites developed by Everfuel in cooperation with partners such as OKQ8 and under the partially EU-funded Nordic Hydrogen Corridor initiative developed in collaboration with the project partners Statkraft, Toyota, Hyundai, and Hydrogen Sweden. Public funding programs and customer commitments are key elements for realizing the plan, which is part of Everfuel’s Scandinavian green hydrogen fuelling strategy for trucks, buses, and cars connecting the main traffic corridors in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. The first Everfuel station in Sweden is expected to open later this year in Trelleborg.
Everfuel A/S announced that the fully owned subsidiary Everfuel GmbH had been preliminary informed about the planned award of a contract by a German public organization in North Rhine-Westphalia for the provision of a hydrogen refueling station for heavy-duty vehicles.
The agreement includes a refueling station and associated services for a minimum contract period of 10 years.
The station is planned to be operational in 2023. The parties have agreed not to disclose the contract value.
