Air Liquide Partners For Hydrogen Network
Air Liquide and TotalEnergies will create an equally-owned joint venture to develop a network of hydrogen stations geared towards heavy-duty vehicles on major European road corridors. This initiative will facilitate access to hydrogen, enabling the development of its use for goods transportation and contributing to the decarbonization of road transportation in Europe.
The partners aim to deploy more than 100 hydrogen stations on major European roads - in France, Benelux and Germany - in the coming years. These stations will be known under the TotalEnergies brand and will be located on major strategic corridors.
Air Liquide will contribute with its expertise in technologies and the entire hydrogen value chain while TotalEnergies will bring its expertise in the operation and management of station networks and the distribution of energies to BtoB customers.
The joint venture, which will be jointly managed by Air Liquide and TotalEnergies, will invest, build and operate these stations, as well as procure hydrogen from the market and dispense it to its transport customers.
"Hydrogen offers clear benefits for heavy-duty mobility,” Matthieu Giard, Vice President and Executive Committee Member of the Air Liquide Group, supervising the Hydrogen activities, said in a statement. “To promote its widespread use, it is imperative to accelerate the development of refueling infrastructures and to offer vehicle manufacturers and transport operators a sufficiently dense network of stations. It is precisely the ambition of this joint venture, which will benefit from the complementary expertise of Air Liquide and TotalEnergies."
