Hydrogen fuel is part of the environmental target of fossil fuel-free truck operations by 2025, and, to be able to refuel the work vehicles at Stockholm's Norvik Port, the company is beginning a procurement process for a new hydrogen fuelling station.
The procurement will feature delivery/bringing into operation a station for refueling vehicles with hydrogen, and a distribution agreement for hydrogen.
Johan Wallen, CCO Ports of Stockholm said “hydrogen would play "a crucial role in converting to fossil fuel-free transport, both on land and at sea."
"This hydrogen fuelling station is part of converting our work vehicles to run on hydrogen and is the first step towards achieving Ports of Stockholm’s goal for our work vehicles to operate fossil fuel-free by 2025.”
The agreement is due to be in place no later than January 2023.
Investment in hydrogen is a major part of achieving the environmental goal of the Port of entirely fossil fuel-free operations by 2030.
