Axpo’s hydrogen production plant in Wildegg-Brugg will use electrolysis to produce around 2,000 tons of renewable hydrogen per year. The project also includes a pipeline to deliver some of the hydrogen to the Voegtlin-Meyer filling station. Thus, it will contribute to the decarbonization of the mobility sector.
Renewable hydrogen production
The direct connection to the Wildegg-Brugg power plant promotes more climate-friendly production.
In addition, the installation of the hydrogen production unit and the pipeline to the nearby filling station is a cooperative project between Axpo, Voegtlin-Meyer, IBB and the city of Brugg. The parties signed a joint memorandum of understanding last November.
In addition, the 2,000 tons of renewable hydrogen are sufficient to fuel about 300 trucks or buses per year. Thus, the project will make an important contribution to the reduction ofCO2 in the mobility sector.
In addition, the nearby Voegtlin-Meyer filling station will receive some of this renewable hydrogen. This will then be made available to regional users.
For its part, IBB plans to use the waste heat produced to make this energy available to industries in the region.
