Air Products (AP) recently announced that it has been selected by Edmonton International Airport as the hydrogen and technology provider for Alberta’s first hydrogen fuel cell passenger vehicle fleet.
Under the agreement, AP will station a mobile hydrogen refueler at the airport to provide hydrogen for the fleet of Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The airport will begin with a fleet of five hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to be used by employees and plans to expand the fleet to as many as 100 cars to serve as a taxi service at the airport.
Earlier this year, AP announced plans to build the first commercial-scale hydrogen refueling station in Edmonton. The multi-modal station, which will serve heavy-duty and light duty vehicles will be located near AP’ net-zero hydrogen energy complex under construction in Edmonton.
