Everfuel receives grant for hydrogen stations in Sweden

The funding is provided by Energimyndigheten and covers the costs of constructing the stations.

Everfuel to announce that its subsidiary Everfuel Sweden AB has received SEK 79 million for building three hydrogen refuelling stations in Sweden.

All stations will support fuelling for passenger vehicles as well as heavy-duty vehicles. The stations will be built around the cities Helsingborg, Luleå and Sundsvall, which offers an extensive infrastructure network along the main Swedish traffic corridors, supporting initial fuel cell fleets and strategic roll-out of hydrogen infrastructure.

“With this amount of funding, our roll-out plan in Sweden has taken a great leap forward. It shows that Sweden is ready to work towards establishing and supporting a hydrogen infrastructure that can offer more zero-emission opportunities for vehicle owners,” says Jacob Krogsgaard, the CEO of Everfuel.

The sites will be a part of Everfuel’s hydrogen station roll-out plan. The Swedish network will comprise of sites developed by Everfuel and sites developed in cooperation with partners such as OKQ8.

Public funding programmes and customer commitments are key elements for realising 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.

The stations supported by Energimyndigheten must be commissioned in 2023. The short timeframe for implementation is set to secure an infrastructure that is ready to support hydrogen-powered vehicles as they grow in numbers over the coming years.
