Plug Power Inc. operated 13 hydrogen refueling stations over the last two years across Europe

Plug Power Inc., a global leader in comprehensive hydrogen solutions for the green hydrogen economy, has completed the deployment of 13 hydrogen refueling stations (HRS) over the last two years across Europe.

The company’s HRS installations support a range of material handling and mobility applications across the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and the Netherlands. All systems are currently in commissioning phase, with many already operational today. The remaining systems are expected to be fully operational by this summer.

The hydrogen refueling stations support Plug’s European material handling customer base, which includes Amazon, Stef, ASDA, Lidl, and more. Additionally, these stations serve Plug’s facilities and HYVIA locations, a joint venture between Plug and Renault to build hydrogen fuel cell electric commercial vehicles. The largest of these sites will consume close to half a ton of hydrogen per day.

Plug’s turnkey HRS solutions extend from the building of the stations to the delivery of the molecule from Plug-owned hydrogen generators. To date, Plug has built the most hydrogen refueling stations worldwide at more than 250. Previously, Plug assumed the operation of four other refueling stations in Europe.

Plug’s HRS solutions support its customers’ conversion of lead acid battery-powered to hydrogen fuel cell-powered material handling equipment. Many of these sites face grid constraints and achieve efficiency gains from the conversion. As the sites use or will use green hydrogen in many cases, Plug customers achieve these gains while simultaneously meeting corporate sustainability goals.

“The rapid uptake of our turnkey hydrogen refueling stations demonstrates growing demand in the European market,” said Andy Marsh. “This milestone underscores the importance of Plug’s experience with hydrogen refueling stations in delivering hydrogen supply to customers. Our team’s expertise has driven down time-to-market for a refueling station from 18 months to 6 months.”
