Denmark's first hydrogen tank stations to open in June  

2008.01.31
As part of a planned "Hydrogen Highway" stretching from Norway to Germany via Jutland, Denmark's first six hydrogen tank stations will open on 11 June
As a first step towards realising the Danish section of  a "Hydrogen Highway" stretching from Norway to Germany via Jutland, Denmark's first six hydrogen tank stations will open on 11 June this year, writes professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer). The new facility will be tested using a variety of hydrogen-powered vehicles, from cars and forklift trucks to golf buggies and vehicles for the disabled.
 
The hydrogen will be produced from the electrolysis of water using wind turbines to supply the power. The energy firm Vestforsyning in the town of Holstebro is providing this facility, while the technology for the hydrogen-powered cars is coming from H2Logic. The total cost is reported to be DKK 13m (USD 2.6m) which is partly being provided by the Danish Energy Authority and the world's leading supplier of wind turbines, Denmark's Vestas Wind Systems.
 
Norway is advancing well with its section of the hydrogen highway. In 2009, a 580 km stretch between Stavanger and Oslo will open, that will be tested using 30 hydrogen-powered sports cars from Mazda, 13 further cars from Toyota and four hydrogen-powered buses.
