H2 Logic A/S, a leading manufacturer of hydrogen fueling stations and a subsidiary of Oslo Stock Exchange listed NEL ASA, has executed a binding technology transfer agreement with Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha, Ltd.

The agreement includes a technology transfer and adaption of the H2Station® CAR-100 product for the Japanese market with the aim to achieve the first station in operation during 2016.

 

MKK has been involved in the construction of 14 hydrogen fueling stations in Japan of which 10 uses the company’s own hydrogen production equipment HyGeia based on steam reforming technology. The collaboration with H2 Logic strengthens MKK’s market leader position in the supply and construction of hydrogen fueling stations in Japan. MKK expects to market launch a Japanese version of the H2Station® CAR-100 during 2016.

H2 Logic will license the CAR-100 technology to MKK and assist in adapting the design for use in Japan. The collaboration is to expand MKK’s position in becoming a major player in supply and construction of hydrogen fueling stations in Japan, and will provide H2 Logic access to the Japanese market.

Toshikazu Takagi, President of Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha, Ltd. states:

“MKK has a well-established delivery and installation record of hydrogen fueling stations with its own design as well as compact hydrogen production facilities like HyGeia in Japan for more than a decade and we are excited with our new collaboration and partnership with H2 Logic to further grow our business in the realm of “hydrogen society”.

Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of H2 Logic A/S states:

“We are very pleased about the collaboration and partnership with MKK, creating an effective and strong platform for the market entry of our H2Station® CAR-100 technology in Japan.
