Hydrogen filling station opens

Car giant Honda has opened the UK’s first public hydrogen filling station in Swindon in a move aimed at boosting the development of hydrogen-powered vehicles.

The new station is located at the carmaker’s plant in the Wiltshire town and is operated by industrial gases company BOC.

Honda said it looks like a conventional filling station, with a similar time to fill a vehicle as with petrol.

Thomas Brachmann, of Honda, said: “Hydrogen fuel cell technology is the ultimate transport solution, meeting environmental demands but also delivering the range and performance that customers expect.”
