HRS & Plug Power Collaboration Bolstered: 5th Hydrogen Station Ordered in 2023
Grenoble – HRS, a leading European designer and manufacturer of hydrogen refueling stations, today announces a further milestone in its collaboration with Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG). HRS has received a firm order for a specific HRS14 hydrogen refueling station, bringing the number of stations ordered by Plug since the start of 2023 to five.
To support Plug’s ambitious European development plan, including the opening of new material handling customer sites over the coming months, HRS signed an agreement in January 2023 to supply hydrogen fueling stations over the next 12-24 months. In this regard, HRS has developed a specific and competitive refueling station to supply hydrogen to fleets of forklifts fitted with Plug’s fuel cell solution.
Plug placed an initial firm order for four specific stations (see press release dated February 1, 2023), two of which are set to be installed in the United Kingdom, one in the Netherlands and one in Spain.
Recently, HRS has received a firm order for a fifth specific hydrogen refueling station which will supply hydrogen to a site in France.
This fifth order reflects the companies’ active collaboration towards promoting hydrogen mobility in Europe and paves the way for further commercial opportunities with Plug with a view to meeting its considerable hydrogen refueling station needs.
Hassen Rachedi, HRS Founding Chairman and CEO, said: “We are delighted to continue working with Plug Power to promote hydrogen mobility by installing our solutions in a number of European countries. We share a common vision for the future of sustainable mobility by committing to reducing companies’ carbon footprints.”
