Ports of Stockholm steps up investment in hydrogen
Ports of Stockholm is investing in hydrogen and is beginning a hydrogen fuelling station procurement for Stockholm Norvik Port. Hydrogen fuel is part of achieving the environmental target of fossil fuel-free truck operations by 2025.
To be able to refuel the work vehicles at Stockholm Norvik Port, Ports of Stockholm is beginning a procurement process for a hydrogen fuelling station. The procurement will include delivery and bringing into operation a station for refuelling vehicles with hydrogen, as well as a distribution agreement for hydrogen.
“Hydrogen will play a crucial role in converting to fossil fuel-free transport, both on land and at sea. This hydrogen fuelling station is part of converting our work vehicles to run on hydrogen and is the first step towards achieving Ports of Stockholm’s goal for our work vehicles to operate fossil fuel-free by 2025,” says Johan Wallén, CCO Ports of Stockholm.
The agreement is expected to be in place no later than January 2023. Investment in hydrogen is part of achieving Ports of Stockholm’s environmental goal of entirely fossil fuel-free operations by 2030.
