A hydrogen production complex capable of supplying fuel for 410,000 hydrogen vehicles per year opened in Pyeongtaek City in Gyeonggi Province of South Korea on 27 July 2022. It is the first of its kind in the Korean capital region and the second in the nation after the facility in Changwon City, the capital of South Gyeongsang Province, which has been operating since the end of last year.This complex will produce hydrogen by reforming natural gas (a process of pyrolyzing natural gas via steam) supplied from the Pyeongtaek LNG receiving base. From August, up to seven tons of hydrogen are slated for production per day (approximately 2,450 tons a year). This is the largest production amount in South Korea, capable of fully refueling 1,200 hydrogen cars a day (approximately 410,000 vehicles per year).Gyeonggi Province expects that the Pyeongtaek complex will become a bridgehead in the hydrogen energy era. Following the construction of the hydrogen production complex, Gyeonggi Province and Pyeongtaek City plan to build a hydrogen transportation complex connected to hydrogen refueling stations near Pyeongtaek Port and to create a hydrogen city that uses hydrogen as its main energy source.The Pyeongtaek complex was selected in December 2019 for the Hydrogen Production Complex Construction Project promoted by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, entailing a total project cost of KRW 23 billion (USD 17.5 million): KRW 4.85 billion from the central government, KRW 3 billion from the provincial government, KRW 7 billion from the city government, and KRW 8.15 billion from the private sector.Most of the 33 hydrogen refueling stations currently operating in the Korean capital region (20 in Gyeonggi Province, seven in Seoul, and six in Incheon) are supplied with hydrogen from remote locations such as Daesan, Ulsan, and Yeosu, which are more than 120 kilometers away on average. As the completion of this complex stands to substantially reduce hydrogen transportation costs, the provincial government expects the hydrogen supply price in the capital region area to drop as well.
