HRS in Spain
HRS in Spain”Spain offers many advantages for the installation of hydrogen refuelling stations. It has both a large capacity for producing green hydrogen at competitive costs and extensive technical knowledge of the local players. All this represents a major opportunity for HRS to expand its presence in Europe, in direct line with our internationalisation strategy,” says Hassen Rachedi, Founder and CEO of HRS.
According to the government’s green hydrogen roadmap of October 2020, Spain will need more than 150 hydrogen stations by 2030. The opening of this subsidiary is therefore a step in the right direction, both for Spain’s objectives and those of HRS. “One of our objectives is to refuel vehicles with 100% green hydrogen within three years, as soon as it becomes available in Spain,” adds Olivier Dhez, Managing Director of HRS.
In addition, HRS has just signed a partnership with the Spanish company H2 & Biogas Technology for the development of mobility projects and the supply of green hydrogen.
