Everfuel opens hydrogen refuelling station for Frankfurt bus operator

Denmark’s Everfuel has opened a hydrogen refuelling station at a Frankfurt bus operator’s depot in Germany.

 

Opened at In-de-City-Bus’ (ICB) depot, the refuelling station will service 23 fuel cell buses for daily city and municipal public transportation.

 

With ICB owning the station, Everfuel developed and constructed the installation and will supply hydrogen to the firm on a minimum three-year contract with its hydrogen trailers.

 

In April, ICB ordered nine hydrogen fuel cell buses from Solaris to add to its existing fleet of 23 that had been running in the city since 2022 and 2024.

 

Lars Jakobsen, Sales Director at Everfuel, said the opening was an important step in the company’s ambition to make “hydrogen available for heavy-duty mobility fleets.”

 

The new station adds to two other bus station refuelling locations in Germany to which the firm supplies hydrogen.

 

Coming as Everfuel’s second dedicated bus station, it comes as part of the company’s realigned strategy to focus on hydrogen production and heavy-duty refuelling, after announcing it would back away from light-duty refuelling last year.

 

The company’s CEO, Jacob Krogsgaard, said the company could not continue to “subsidise public refuelling.”
