New video tour puts Aberdeen’s hydrogen innovation in the spotlight

Aberdeen’s role as a global innovation hub for hydrogen technology is being showcased in a new educational video.

The online tour of the Aberdeen City Hydrogen Energy Storage (ACHES) station is part of a drive to develop the supply chain and will be used as a resource for use in schools, colleges and universities as well as to support organisations and individuals with an interest in hydrogen production.

The ACHES facility in Cove is a key part of the infrastructure network which has been established in the city as part of the H2 Aberdeen initiative and the EU Interreg NSR funded Hydrogen Transport Economy (HyTrEc2) project. HyTrEc2 is a collaboration of partners in the North Sea Region working to develop a hydrogen transport economy through vehicle trials, production of green hydrogen and supply chain development.

Councillor Philip Bell, Aberdeen City Council’s hydrogen spokesperson, said: “Aberdeen has established an enviable reputation as an innovator in hydrogen technology and we have a very important story to tell as we build on the excellent work that has already been done.

“The new video tour is an excellent tool for building understanding not only of the ACHES station but of hydrogen production and the enormous possibilities there are in expanding the city’s role in the sector.”

ACHES is Aberdeen’s second hydrogen refuelling station and allows 350 and 700 bar refuelling for large vehicles, vans and cars. This is part of the Aberdeen Region Hydrogen Strategy and Action Plan 2015-2015 to develop a hydrogen economy in the region.
