"We are very pleased to see the high level of interest shown by the Turkish government in hydrogen technology as a future fuel," said Daryl Wilson, Hydrogenics President and CEO. "This first hydrogen fueling station in Turkey demonstrates Hydrogenics' ability to respond to the increasing demand for hydrogen fueling stations across Europe. Our ability to deliver a complete offering addressing quality, safety and economic requirements further validates Hydrogenics as the company with the expertise to manufacture and install hydrogen fueling stations wherever needed."
The station was financed by the International Centre for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (ICHET), a project of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), founded in Istanbul in 2004 and supported by the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources. ICHET seeks to initiate projects in the developing world that establish or enhance hydrogen production from indigenous – and preferably renewable – energy resources so that hydrogen can take a far more important role in the satisfaction of local energy needs. Additional information about ICHET and UNIDO can be found at www.unido-ichet.org.
