Air Liquide reopens its Alma station in the centre of Paris

A few months ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, Air Liquide, partner* of the Olympics, reopens its historic Alma hydrogen station.

It was the first hydrogen station to open in the capital, in 2015 (at the same time as the COP21 and the birth of Hype for its hydrogen taxis). The station got a makeover and is now sporting the colours of the Olympic Games.

The group points out that the station has received a subsidy from the Clean Hydrogen Partnership as part of the H2ME2 project.

Armelle Levieux, member of Air Liquide’s Executive Committee overseeing Hydrogen activities commented: “Paris 2024 represents a fantastic opportunity to accelerate the development and the adoption of hydrogen, a key solution to reduce CO2 emissions, in particular for intensive transport. Located at the heart of the French capital, the Place de l’Alma station embodies the showcase of an exceptional network, which will leave its mark as a lasting legacy. “

The station will be able to fuel the Toyota Mirai, which will be over a thousand during the Games.
