The Scandinavian Hydrogen Highway Partnership (SHHP) along with the European Lighthouse Project (LHP), has created H2moves Scandinavia (part of ) which will be rolling out 10 Daimler Mercedes-Benz B-class F-CELL autos two Fiat Alfa Romeo MiTo fuel cell vehicles (a first for this company).
The vehicles will serve as shuttles and demonstration autos around the Oslo, Norway region. Oslo will also be having a hydrogen fueling station built by 2011, which will use renewable energy, namely hydropower and the electrolysis of water to create H2.
In addition, will add five hydrogen fuel cell city autos to the mix in Oslo. The FCV city autos will have a range of around 155 miles. H2 Logic will also create a mobile hydrogen refuelling concept with the goal of identifying certification gaps that remain in Scandinavia that need to be addressed before a more robust hydrogen highway system can be built.
In the past I’ve talked about the Scandinavian Hydrogen Highway and the Norway Hynor Project which starts in Oslo and runs to Stavanger with five hydrogen fueling station stops in-between. The development of Oslo as a focal point for a hydrogen vehicle and fueling station cluster will serve the EU as a beacon of H2 development much the same was Los Angeles is serving in the U. S.
