Air Liquide will supply leading Canadian hydrogen infrastructure company, HTEC, with four additional hydrogen refueling stations in Canada. These contracts will help meet the growing demand for hydrogen mobility infrastructure and will expand Air Liquide’s offerings in the country.

Three of the stations will each have the ability to supply up to 1 tonne per day of hydrogen to both light- and heavy-duty vehicles. The fourth station will meet the emerging needs for hydrogen heavy-duty mobility with a capacity of over 100 kg a day, paving the way for further demand. Air Liquide will provide the complete solution of compression, high-pressure storage, and cooling all within a single skid as well as standalone dispensers. All stations are projected to be delivered by the first semester of 2023 and will be owned and operated by Vancouver based HTEC. 

Air Liquide is a recognized expert in the design of hydrogen refueling stations and has been providing standardized and customized solutions that meet customers' demands for over 20 years, from design, integration, manufacturing and installation to commissioning and maintenance of the stations.

By working with key customers, and expanding on strategic relationships, Air Liquide will continue to develop hydrogen fueling and deploy hydrogen infrastructure in Canada. 

Air Liquide’s commitment to hydrogen energy

In full support of the 2015 Paris agreement, the Air Liquide commitments address the urgency of climate change and energy transition, targeting carbon neutrality by 2050. As a pioneer in hydrogen, the Group is convinced that hydrogen is a cornerstone of the energy transition. In the past 50 years, the Group has developed unique expertise enabling it to master the entire supply chain, from production and storage to distribution, contributing to the widespread use of hydrogen as a clean energy carrier for a wide range of applications such as industrial usages and clean mobility.Air Liquide is committed to reaching several goals, investing approximately 8 billion Euro in the low-carbon hydrogen full value chain by 2035, and a total of 3 GW electrolysis capacity by 2030.
