Oil refiner and petrol retailer PKN Orlen said it has commenced the process to select a contractor for its hydrogen refueling stations, with the first stations serving buses and passenger cars to be deployed in Poznań and Katowice, according to orlen.pl.
The Polish group is also set to start the construction of a hydrogen hub in Włocławek by the end of this year. Driving progress in production and distribution of alternative fuels is a cornerstone of the Orlen2030 strategy and deployment of the refueling stations is an element of the Orlen Group's comprehensive hydrogen program, which provides for the construction of high-purity hydrogen production sources in Trzebinia and Włocławek. "We strongly believe alternative fuels will play an increasingly important role in advancing the automotive industry," said Daniel Obajtek, CEO of PKN Orlen.
The hub in Trzebinia is under construction and will become operational by the end of 2021. The project to build a hydrogen hub in Włocł awek has entered the final stage of procurement, with construction due to start later this year.
