Air Liquide Japan conducts opening of new hydrogen station

The Japanese arm of industrial gas giant Air Liquide last month announced the opening of a new hydrogen station located in Aichi Prefecture, according to The Gas Review.

The Handa Kamezaki Hydrogen Station becomes the 15th hydrogen refuelling station in Japan and the 10th in Aichi Prefecture.

An onsite hydrogen supply system will see the station supplied with a volume of hydrogen produced from city gas capable of filling 50 to 60 fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) per day.

Formally opened at a ceremony attended by Virginie Cavalli, CEO at Air Liquide Japan, the station also features a function to back up the supply of hydrogen to other off-site type hydrogen stations at nine locations in Aichi Prefecture.

Commenting on the opening, Cavalli said, “I am very pleased to see the inauguration of the Handa Kamezaki Hydrogen Station thanks to the efforts of all the people concerned.”
