SEOUL, Jul. 17 (Korea Bizwire) — Overcrowded hydrogen fueling stations in downtown Seoul are pushing the city to come up with emergency measures.
The two hydrogen fueling stations in Seoul, located in Sangam and Yangjae, are being overcrowded as Incheon, Gyeonggi Province, and other satellite regions are expanding supply of hydrogen cars despite a lack of infrastructure.
The problem has led Seoul to place a limit on the refueling amount for each car.
Starting on July 22, the Yangjae fueling station will limit hydrogen pressure to 350 bar, which is half the pressure needed for a full fill, until the new fueling station at the National Assembly opens.
Many drivers, however, argue that the new measure does not fundamentally solve the problem at hand.
“Many office workers like us refuel our cars once on the weekend to use them for the next seven days,” said one driver. “350 bar is just not enough.”
Others supported the new measure, saying that it will reduce waiting times to use the stations.
