Air Liquide, Shenergy, SCIP unveil major hydrogen plans for Shanghai Chemical Industry Park

Air Liquide China, Shenergy and SCIP Investment are set to transform China’s Shanghai Chemical Industry Park into a hydrogen hotspot, that will showcase the city’s largest-scale hydrogen filling centre, with a capacity of 24-tonnes per day.

The trio on Thursday (3rd March) inked an investment agreement for the project, believed to be a ¥180m ($28.5m) investment, in an effort to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen energy for mobility application in both the city and the Yangtze River Delta.
