Edinburgh-based hydrogen technology company Logan Energy announced the opening of the first public hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) for vehicles in Scotland’s Central Belt on 4 March.
The HRS is based at Logan Energy’s Wallyford facility and is the only refuelling stop between Aberdeen and Sheffield. Logan Energy, which financed the HRS, said it will offer “safe, supervised fuelling by trained personnel during working hours”. It also hopes to encourage people to consider hydrogen vehicles as viable green transport options.
Bill Ireland, CEO of Logan Energy, said: “While hydrogen-powered electric vehicles offer real reductions in carbon dioxide and other harmful emissions, the widespread uptake of these vehicles is restricted by the lack of investment in the deployment of refuelling stations.”
