Fuel cell vehicle producer Hyliko, has signed its first hydrogen charging station rental contract with Atawey. The contract was signed at the Hyvolution exhibition, held in early February, and means fuelling supplier Atawey will provide a mobile hydrogen station in the Paris region in September 2023.
The mobile, temporary charging station will enable the refueling of heavy goods vehicles with hydrogen while the Villabé fixed station (Grand Paris Sud), is is readied for launch mid-2024. With a distribution capacity of 70 kilos per day and a pressure of 350 bar, the mobile station will allow the refueling of two trucks per day during the week.
“We chose Atawey, which offers a unique system for renting a relocatable hydrogen charging station. It is one of the most advanced and available products on the market, with a high level of service. ” says Denis Héchard, Director of Hyliko’s network of stations. ”The fact that Atawey is also a French company committed to sustainable mobility issues has reinforced our approach, which promotes national initiatives in our offer to decarbonise road freight transport.”
“We are proud to be able to support Hyliko in what is a national first: the implementation of a mobile hydrogen charging station for refueling heavy vehicles. The mobile charging station is a real specificity of the Atawey offer, because it makes it possible to serve as a station in transition with the same level of quality, safety and comfort for users as a fixed station. This partnership reinforces our ambition to accelerate the deployment ofcarbon-free mobility in France. ” says Jean-Michel Amaré, CEO and founder of Atawey.
