Nel ASA: Awarded contract with H2 Frontier Inc. for hydrogen fueling station in California

(Oslo, 6 March 2017) Nel Hydrogen Solutions, a division of Nel ASA (Nel, OSE:NEL) has been awarded a contract by H2 Frontier Inc. for a H2Station® hydrogen fueling station to be installed in Los Angeles, California.

“It is great to be trusted with equipment delivery from yet another leading hydrogen fueling company in California. The increasing need for higher capacity stations also underlines the ongoing successful rollout of hydrogen vehicles in this important state”, says Jacob Krogsgaard, Senior Vice President of Nel Hydrogen Solutions.

The H2Station® will replace existing equipment at a hydrogen fueling station in Los Angeles, operated by H2 Frontier Inc. with the aim of providing more fueling capacity and improved performance. The effort is supported by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

This contract expands Nel’s market entry into California by adding a station into the Los Angeles area, south in the state, shortly after being awarded the contract to deliver a network of hydrogen fueling stations in Northern California by Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

“We are now moving forward at full speed to finalize the pre-certification of our H2Stations to the US market. As we have seen in Europe, this enables a significantly more streamlined permitting and installation process, and contributes in setting a new industrial norm and benchmark for safety level and legal compliance for hydrogen fueling stations. Being the first in the market to offer such a certification has given us a competitive advantage in the US market”, Krogsgaard concludes.

The contract has a total value of more than USD 1 million with expected installation of equipment during early 2018 with shipment towards the end of 2017.
