Toyota Motor Poland and Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) signed an settlement on cooperation in advancing hydrogen expertise in Poland. A pilot hydrogen refuelling station will probably be constructed underneath the settlement.
‘The launch of a pilot hydrogen refuelling station will probably be PGNiG’s first step within the implementation of the Group’s hydrogen programme. In testing the station we’ll work with Toyota, a accomplice with a robust popularity within the automotive business and a number one producer of hydrogen-powered automobiles. I’m assured this partnership will contribute to profitable development of the hydrogen gas market in Poland,’ mentioned Jerzy Kwieci?ski, President of the PGNiG Management Board.
PGNiG’s hydrogen analysis programme unveiled in May offers for the manufacturing of hydrogen, together with inexperienced hydrogen utilizing renewable vitality sources, hydrogen storage and distribution, and industrial functions.

PGNiG has already signed a contract with a consortium of Poland- and UK-based firms for the design and building of the station.
“Operation of the pilot station will assist PGNiG to accumulate hydrogen competencies related to such tasks.
