    Luxembourg : Development of the first public hydrogen station in Luxembourg

    September 28, 2022 - Al Bawaba Business


      Francois Bausch, Minister of Mobility and Public Works and Claude Turmes, Minister of Energy, in the presence of representatives of TotalEnergies Marketing Luxembourg, Nicolas Leblond and Eric Bleyer, made a presentation on the development of the first public hydrogen station in Luxembourg.

      The first public hydrogen station in Luxembourg will be commissioned towards the end of 2022/beginning of 2023 by TotalEnergies. This first station in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg provides for the supply of hydrogen to light vehicles, commercial vehicles and heavy goods vehicles and will be created in the ZAE Wolser A in Bettembourg, at the secure road center ("CRS") of the CFL's Eurohub Sud, as part of the European "H2Benelux" project.

      This project, launched by the European Commission, aims to create eight hydrogen refueling stations in the Benelux, including one in Luxembourg. A consortium of eight companies has been established, including TotalEnergies, which has undertaken to implement the hydrogen refueling station in Luxembourg. Beyond this commitment, TotalEnergies plans to build a new multi-energy station in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in the coming years, which will offer, among other things, electrical terminals and the distribution of hydrogen. Given the innovative nature of the multi-energy site, the government welcomes the initiative and supports TotalEnergies as much as possible.

      climate infrastructure and the environment. "Hydrogen refueling stations and in particular those ready to supply hydrogen fuel cell trucks will play an important role in the future in the decarbonisation of the transport sector. In the "Fit for 55" package proposed by the European Commission in order to reduce the EU's CO? emissions by at least 55% compared to 1990 until 2030, obligations with regard to the equipment of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) and in particular multimodal hubs are formulated. I am therefore delighted that the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is already ensuring today that the infrastructure required for alternative fuels is deployed in order to facilitate the transition to these technologies" specifies Franois Bausch,

      Hydrogen is a promising alternative in certain sectors that are difficult to decarbonize by direct electrification, such as the heavy-duty sector, for example: it makes it possible to store energy and release it without a carbon footprint. Renewable hydrogen, produced from renewable energies, does not cause greenhouse gas emissions", explains Claude Turmes, Minister of Energy. The PNEC provides that the certification and supply of "green hydrogen" are essential conditions for the commissioning of hydrogen stations.

      "Reinventing energy production and consumption to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 together with society and solving the climate challenge. This is the ambition of TotalEnergies, a major player in the energy transition. It is therefore with great pride that we announce the opening of the first hydrogen station in Luxembourg for the end of 2022/beginning of 2023", Eric Bleyer, Mobility & New Energies Director of TotalEnergies in Luxembourg.

      "Hydrogen is one of the constituent elements of TotalEnergies Marketing Services' strategy to decarbonise mobility, particularly in European long-haul transport," says Antoine Tournand, Hydrogen Director for H2 Mobility. "The realization of the first H? station in Luxembourg is an integral part of our objective to directly or indirectly operate a European network of hydrogen filling stations of more than 100 stations in Europe over the next decade. We are proud to contribute to the European effort and in particular that of Luxembourg to ensure the energy transition in mobility".
