Adnoc opens region’s first green hydrogen refuelling station

Adnoc
The 'H2GO' station will be located in Masdar City and operated by Adnoc Distribution

UAE’s oil major Adnoc has opened the region’s first high-speed green hydrogen pilot refuelling station to test a fleet of zero-emission hydrogen-powered vehicles.

The “H2GO” station in Masdar City, operated by Adnoc Distribution, will generate green hydrogen from water using an electrolyser powered by clean grid electricity, the company said in a statement.

The hydrogen supplied at the pilot station will be certified as “green” from solar sources by the International REC Standard, a global certification organisation.

The pilot will collect data to understand the long-term viability of hydrogen vehicles in the UAE.

Throughout the pilot, the fleet of hydrogen vehicles will be provided by Toyota, Al Futtaim Motors and BMW and will be tested by taxi companies, including Tawasul.

The H2GO station is the latest mobility development of Adnoc Distribution following the launch of E2GO to build and operate electric vehicle infrastructure in Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE.

Abdulla Balalaa, chairman of Masdar City, said: “Currently, transportation accounts for approximately 20 percent of the total global carbon output, and we need to work across every technology possible on our journey to net zero.”

Adnoc has allocated AED55 billion ($15 billion) to advance lower-carbon solutions and develop decarbonisation technologies to reduce carbon intensity by 25 percent by 2030 and reach its net zero targets by 2045.
