First hydrogen refuelling station in the region of Lucerne, Switzerland, planned for early 2021

LANDI Sempach-Emmen, operator of four AGROLA refuelling stations in the Lucerne region in Switzerland, will open a hydrogen refuelling station in Rothenburg at the beginning of 2021. Hydrogen mobility offers all the prerequisites for sustainably reducing CO2 emissions and supporting the energy turnaround. Construction work will start on Monday, 05 October.

LANDI Sempach-Emmen in cooperation with H2 Energy AG is opening an AGROLA hydrogen refuelling station in Rothenburg (LU), directly next to the Rothenburg motorway exit. This is a response to the growing demand for renewable energies. Directly next to the refuelling station is the ‘Auto AG Truck’, which will put the new Hyundai hydrogen trucks into circulation and service them. The hydrogen offered in Rothenburg is 100% CO2 neutral and is produced from hydroelectric power in Switzerland. The refuelling station is scheduled to open in January 2021. Refuelling a vehicle with hydrogen can be compared to a classic combustion engine in terms of process and range.

Sustainably produced hydrogen without emissions

The joint project of LANDI Sempach-Emmen and H2 Energy AG is supported by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) within the framework of the H2Haul project. AGROLA is one of the founding members of the ‘H2 Mobility Switzerland’ support association, which was founded in 2018. It aims to promote hydrogen mobility in the private sector. All members of the association have committed themselves to the use of sustainably produced and therefore CO2-free, green hydrogen. Together the members operate more than 2,000 refuelling stations and have a total of 5,000 commercial vehicles. They are investing in the refuelling station infrastructure and will use the first Hyundai hydrogen trucks on Swiss roads. The refuelling station in Rothenburg will be the second hydrogen refuelling station under the AGROLA brand.
