Herning, Denmark, 18 February 2022 - In-der-City-Bus GmbH orders heavy-duty hydrogen station from Everfuel. In December 2021 it was announced that Everfuel had been awarded a contract by a public organisation in the Frankfurt area in Germany, and all parties have now signed the final contract.


In a Europe-wide tendering procedure, In-der-City-Bus GmbH (ICB) has awarded Everfuel GmbH the contract for the planning, construction and commissioning of a hydrogen refuelling station. The contract also includes maintenance and servicing. Additionally, Everfuel was awarded the contract for the supply of hydrogen for a minimum of three years.

This is the first order for Everfuel GmbH in Germany since the company was founded at the beginning of 2021 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Everfuel A/S from Denmark.

"We are pleased with the order from ICB and grateful for the confidence they have shown in us. This project positions us in the very exciting German market and enables us to show existing and new customers our innovative solutions for zero-emission transport," says Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO at Everfuel.

The planned hydrogen refuelling station has the capacity to refuel at least 22 fuel-cell buses per day. It is designed to be fully redundant and modular so that the station can easily be expanded to refuel a larger number of hydrogen buses.

The green hydrogen (H2) dispensed will be delivered in Everfuel's custom-build hydrogen trailers. The project will contribute to a significant reduction to emissions of climate-damaging greenhouse gases. 

With this project, ICB is launching the next phase of its electrification concept where battery buses have  been in use since 2018. With the fuel cell buses, the company is now integrating the second fossil-free technology into its fleet. In the future, the respective technological system advantages will thus be played out in Frankfurt's local transport.

ICB ordered their first 13 fuel cell buses from Solaris in mid-2021. These will be operated on the 22-kilometre Line 36 when delivered. The line runs almost exclusively through densely populated inner-city districts and areas close to the city center of Frankfurt.

"With the construction of our own hydrogen refuelling station and the implementation of the fuel cell buses, ICB has reached another milestone on the way to climate-neutral urban transport. Our goal is to complete the technology change from diesel to locally emission-free, low-noise fleets powered by hydrogen or electricity by 2030. An important prerequisite for this is an efficient and reliable infrastructure. We are convinced that with Everfuel we have found the right partner for our hydrogen refuelling station and the supply of hydrogen. And we are proud to support the climate targets set by the city of Frankfurt am Main," says Stephanie Schramm, Managing Director at IBC.
