In 2014, the Municipality of Sandviken and Sandvik Materials Technology joined forces to build a hydrogen refueling station for fuel-cell vehicles in Sandviken, with the aim of promoting and enabling a greener Region. In autumn 2015, a partnership was established between AGA, the Municipality of Sandviken and Sandvik Materials Technology, in which the parties applied for, and were granted, funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU) for a refueling station in Sandviken. The hydrogen refueling station is a also a highly strategic symbol for Sandvik, promoting the unique large scale production plant for pre-coated plates used in fuel-cells.
“This refueling station is unique because the hydrogen doesn’t need to be transported anywhere. Moreover, the hydrogen in Sandviken comes from green electricity and water, which means that the environmental impact is minimal. That makes our partnership in Sandviken even more gratifying, because of the strong desire to create long-term sustainable solutions,” says Stefan Peterson, Marketing Director
of AGA Gas in Sweden.
