Isle of Wight hydrogen refuelling sites given green light

The firm has been granted planning permission for an 80kg/day hydrogen refuelling station at four locations and at one for a 15kg/day marine refuelling station. Two of these sites will also see the installation of hydrogen refuellers ready for operation in November 2014, as part of the EcoIsland Hydrogen Vehicle Refueller project on the Isle of Wight, supported by funding from the UK’s innovation agency, the Technology Strategy Board.

Dr Graham Cooley, chief executive of ITM Power, said: ‘The expertise required to achieve planning permission and satisfy compliance bodies is often underestimated. I am delighted that ITM has been successful in gaining approval to commence the build of two hydrogen refuelling stations on the Isle of Wight. Furthermore, the continued support from the Isle of Wight council and their determination to become a prime location for hydrogen fuel cell vehicle deployment provides a fantastic backdrop to this exciting project.’
