Hydrogen Link West Denmark is a public private partnership project between
more than 20 various actors on development and pilot testing of hydrogen
filling stations and fuel cell hybrid vehicles in a number of West Danish cities
with a total budget of more than $2.5 million (€1.8)
The project was initiated in April 2006 through a number of pre-studies in the
cities of Hvide Sande, Holstebro and Ringkøbing around the possibilities for
establishing hydrogen filling stations and using fuel cell hybrid vehicles in the
cities. The Hydrogen Link West Denmark project was developed on basis of
the recommendations of the pre-studies in all of the cities thus securing
collaboration across the cities on the development and testing efforts.
In the Hydrogen Link West Denmark project a number of filling stations will be
established at fuel cell hybrid vehicle end-users in the various cities.
Hydrogen is produced centrally in the city of Holstebro and is distributed by
truck to each of the filling stations in the cities. The hydrogen production
based on wind power and the production plant is operated by a local
energy company. Seven various fuel cell hybrid vehicles will be put in
operation in the cities at the various end-users, among these the world’s
largest wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S.
The hydrogen and fuel cell technology in the project is developed and
supplied by H2 Logic A/S. The project is financed by all the participating
companies and organisations, among these, the Danish Energy Agency,
Vestas Wind Systems A/S and H2 Logic A/S.
