Saudi Aramco and Air Products have announced the signing of an agreement to jointly build the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle fuelling station in Saudi Arabia.
The collaboration between the two companies will combine Air Products’ experience in the field of hydrogen with Saudi Aramco’s industrial experience, facilities and R&D capabilities.
Saudi Aramco and Air Products will establish a pilot fleet of fuel cell vehicles for which high-purity compressed hydrogen will be dispensed at the new fuelling station.
Air Products’ proprietary SmartFuel® hydrogen fuelling technology will be incorporated into the new station to supply the vehicles with compressed hydrogen.
The collected data during this pilot phase of the project will provide information for the assessment of future applications of this emerging transport technology in the local environment.
The hydrogen refuelling station is expected to be operational in the 2Q19, and will be located within the grounds of Air Products’ Technology Center in the Dhahran Techno Valley Science Park.
