Hysetco operates the largest hydrogen station in Europe

largest hydrogen station Europe

The largest hydrogen refuelling station in Europe (for light vehicles) is now operational in Paris. It was inaugurated in the presence of Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-France region.

HysetCo reaches a new milestone with this opening. The company already has three other operational stations at Orly, Roissy and Porte de La Chapelle (all in Paris). This opening also represents a move to industrial scale for the project. Indeed, the station can deliver four times as much hydrogen as each of the stations already in operation, i.e. a capacity of 1 tonne per day.

These volumes will make it possible to keep pace with the sharp increase in the use of hydrogen for mobility applications in the Paris region where HysetCo already distributes more than 16 tonnes of hydrogen a month. This amounts to nearly 6,000 full tanks of hydrogen for more than 1.3 million kilometres travelled every month. This station also has an electrolyser, which makes it possible for HysetCo to produce and distribute low-carbon hydrogen locally.

The largest hydrogen station in Europe to be used for the 2024 Olympic Games

The new station at Porte de Saint-Cloud is in line with the environmental objectives set by Europe, the French Government, the City of Paris and the Île-de-France Region to rapidly reduce air pollution. It is also in line with the climate ambitions of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The station will be used to power taxis, commercial vehicles and other hydrogen-powered vehicles such as coaches, lorries and boats.
