An independent specialist in stored electrical energy registered in Dundee has taken over the operation of Aberdeen City Hydrogen Energy Storage project (ACHES).
ACHES, which supplies hydrogen to a fleet of 18 cars and vans, was built by Belgian company Hydrogenics and completed in November 2016. It began operation in February 2017 and after six-months of being run by Hydrogenics,
It has now been passed to NORCO Group on a one-year operations contract after Hydrogenics trained five Norco staff on the operation and maintenance of the facility.
ACHES is Aberdeen’s second hydrogen refuelling station, along with Kittybrewster which serves 10 buses.
Finbar Kelly, Norco’s Commercial and Contracts Manager said “This contract award recognises our commitment to be at the forefront of technological advancements in energy innovation and we look forward to working closely with ACC managing the operation of ACHES and being part of developing the region’s energy infrastructure.”
