As part of the 20 refuelling station initiative of Linde and Daimler, TOTAL will upgrade and its existing liquid hydrogen refuelling station located in Holzmarktstrasse in Berlin to 700 bar high pressure technology (CGH2) and continue operations at the site.

With this move, TOTAL continues its activities for the development of hydrogen infrastructure in Germany. During the construction and operational phases, refuelling station technologies as well as start-up procedures will be specifically tested, developed further and optimised. The main research objectives of the project encompass the areas of network development, technology development and the development of operational and supply concepts along with sustainability and customer acceptance. From the operator perspective, necessary know-how for the successful expansion of hydrogen infrastructure will be built up.

The HyUWE project is a part of the 50 refuelling station programme commitment from June 2012 of the BMVBS and various industry partners for the development, operation, testing and comprehensive evaluation of a supply network comprising at least 50 hydrogen refuelling stations by 2015 to ensure the prerequisites are met for the successful market introduction of hydrogen vehicles.
