SEOUL, Oct. 28 (Korea Bizwire) — Hyundai Motor Co. on Friday opened up South Korea’s first moving hydrogen charging station in Seoul’s Gwangjin District.
The mobile station is set up on top of a 25-ton Xcient hydrogen fuel-cell electric truck. It comes with all of the core facilities of a hydrogen fueling station — a hydrogen compressor, storage container and charger.
The station is capable of charging up to 2.5 kilograms of hydrogen, and up to 50 cars per day.
For charging efficiency, the maximum charge will be limited to 50 percent.
Hyundai plans to introduce an improved, high-pressure mobile hydrogen fueling station by 2024, providing hydrogen to urban areas with less hydrogen infrastructure.
Hyundai also plans to continue setting up efficient hydrogen charging systems in metropolitan cities that lack enough space for permanent charging stations despite the concentrated demand.
