TotalEnergies and Air Liquide have announced their decision to create an equally owned joint venture to develop a network of hydrogen stations, geared towards heavy duty vehicles on major European road corridors. This initiative will help facilitate access to hydrogen, enabling the development of its use for goods transportation and further strengthening the hydrogen sector. The partners aim to deploy more than 100 hydrogen stations on major European roads, in France, Benelux and Germany, in the coming years. These stations, under the TotalEnergies brand, will be located on major strategic corridors. This agreement will lead to the creation of a major player in hydrogen refueling solutions and contribute to the decarbonization of road transportation in Europe. The two companies will combine their know-how and expertise in infrastructure, hydrogen distribution and mobility: TotalEnergies will bring its expertise in the operation and management of stations networks and the distribution of energies to BtoB customers;Air Liquide will contribute with its expertise in technologies and its mastery of the entire hydrogen value chain.The joint venture, which will be jointly managed by TotalEnergies and Air Liquide, will invest, build and operate these stations, as well as procure hydrogen from the market and dispense it to its transport customers.
