ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce that it has signed a fuel contract with Anglo American, selling hydrogen at £10/kg. The contract covers fuel dispensed across ITM Power’s hydrogen refuelling network. The refuelling network has been financially supported by Innovate UK, Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
This is the seventh fuel supply contract for refuelling fuel cell electric vehicles ITM has signed. Anglo American joins Europcar, Hyundai, Toyota, Commercial Group, Arcola Energy and Arval as a fuel customer.
ITM Power is currently rolling out a network of 10 hydrogen refuelling stations in the UK of which 3 are now open for public access.
Each station produces hydrogen on site via ITM Power’s rapid response electrolyser system, and can refuel a fuel cell electric car in three minutes, providing 300 to 350miles of clean emission driving, without compromise to drivers’ normal refuelling routine.
Dr Graham Cooley, CEO, ITM Power, commented: “Anglo American is a most welcome customer for ITM Power and we look forward to further supporting their refuelling requirements as our hydrogen refuelling station network expands throughout the UK.”
Andrew Hinkly, Executive Head of Marketing, Anglo American Platinum commented: “To meet the ever more challenging emissions targets being set around the world, the use of zero emissions Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles will increase. Rapid refuelling and the use of a renewable clean fuel offers a significant advantage. We are excited to support the expansion of the hydrogen refuelling network and refuel at ITM Power’s hydrogen stations. We look forward to further expansion of the hydrogen refuelling network in the UK over the coming months.”
