Opening of Hydrogen Refuelling Station at Gatwick Airport
ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce the opening of its eighth UK public access hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) located at the Shell services, Gatwick Airport on the M23 corridor south of London.
About the new M23 Gatwick Airport Hydrogen Refuelling Station: The new Gatwick Airport HRS is ITM Power’s eighth UK public access HRS and joins Cobham on the M25, Beaconsfield on the M40, Rainham in Essex on the A13, Teddington in London, Rotherham on the M1, Kirkwall in Orkney and Swindon on the M4 corridor. The new HRS lies just off the M23 linking the M25 with the South of England. The station uses electricity via a renewable energy contract and water to generate hydrogen on-site with no need for deliveries.
Gatwick Airport, also known as London Gatwick (IATA: LGW), is a major international airport near Crawley in West Sussex, southeast England, 29.5 miles (47.5 km) south of Central London. It is the second-busiest airport by total passenger traffic in the UK, after Heathrow Airport and is the ninth busiest airport in Europe.
The Pan European H2ME2 project: The new HRS is the second of two stations in the UK to be deployed as part of the pan European H2ME2 project, which was funded by the European Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU) and the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
