Nel ASA: First hydrogen fueling station with Nel technology opens in Japan
(Oslo, 5 October 2017) Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha (MKK) today opened a hydrogen fueling station based on H2Station® technology from Nel ASA (Nel, OSE:NEL) in Kawasaki city, Japan.
“We are very pleased to see MKK reaching this milestone in our collaboration, and we hope to see many of these stations in Japan in the near future,” says Jon André Løkke, Chief Executive Officer of Nel.
MKK purchased the rights to manufacture hydrogen fueling stations based on Nel’s CAR-100 H2Station® in 2015. Following two years of development the Japanese version was launched for the domestic market.
“By gaining access to the world-leading hydrogen fueling station technology from Nel and combining it with our engineering- and hydrogen experience, we have designed a hydrogen fueling station especially adapted for the Japanese market,” says Toshikazu Takagi, President of MKK.
Japan is building a network of hydrogen fueling stations with a goal of having a network of 160 stations by 2020, of which more than 90 are in operation today.
