    HEP to build the first hydrogen station at the Port of Amsterdam

    Holthausen Energy Points (HEP) is to build the first hydrogen station at the Port of Amsterdam. Truck drivers and motorists will be able to refuel at the station 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Work on the construction of the hydrogen station on Australiëhavenweg at the Port of Amsterdam will start in spring 2020, the company said in its release.

    To promote sustainable production of hydrogen at the station, the municipality of Amsterdam has issued a one-off grant of € 0.5 million.

    The municipality is also planning to install hydrogen fuel cell engines in its refuse vehicles. The first six of these refuse vehicles will be on the streets in 2020.

    The hydrogen station will also refill hydrogen cylinders. This will enable local businesses to quickly and easily obtain hydrogen for their (construction) generators, and hoisting and lifting equipment such as forklifts.

    Port of Amsterdam sees hydrogen as having an important role to play as an energy carrier that will support the achievement of climate targets. The availability of hydrogen will enable companies in the port area of Amsterdam to improve the sustainability of their logistics and transport systems. It will also allow them to use hydrogen as a component in the production of chemicals and fuels, such as synthetic kerosene for aviation. Together with specialty chemicals company Nouryon and Tata Steel, the Port of Amsterdam is participating in H2ermes, a project that will enable large-scale production of green hydrogen with North Sea wind power. The port is also building a new vessel that will be powered by hydrogen fuel cells.

    The municipality of Amsterdam is a partner in REVIVE (REfuse Vehicle Innovation and Validation in Europe). One of the objectives of this European project is to demonstrate that trucks with a fuel cell range extender are an effective emission-free alternative to conventional heavy-duty vehicles. The project has received funding from the EU’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
