ORLEN Launches Hydrogen Refuelling Station in the Czech Republic
ORLEN Group has announced the launch of a new hydrogen refuelling station at the ORLEN Benzina facility in Prague. Hydrogen Industry Leaders explores how the station will help the Czech Republic make a significant step towards zero-emission public transport.
The station will provide environmentally friendly fuel for cars, trucks, and buses in the Czech Republic.
It features two dispensers that come equipped with specially designed gun noses that offer a pressure of 700 bar for cars and 350 bar for larger vehicles.
ORLEN Unipetrol has set ambitious goals to provide up to 28 hydrogen filling stations across the Czech Republic by 2030, along with two hydrogen distribution terminals for rail transport in Litvinov and Neratovice.
Later this year, ORLEN Group will introduce hydrogen stations in Poznan and Katowice, allowing drivers in Poland to fill up their cars with eco-friendly fuel.
By mid-2025, further ORLEN hydrogen stations in Bielsko-Biala, Gorzow Wielkopolski, Walbrzych, Krakow, Pila, and Warsaw will be operational.
It is said that the expansion of traditional and alternative fuels to include hydrogen is a significant step towards low and zero-emission individual and public transport.
