Hans Energy, which owns a stake in the parent of Hong Kong bus operators Citybus and New World First Bus, said it will build the city’s first hydrogen refuelling station.
The refuelling station in Citybus’ depot in West Kowloon could be operational as early as the first quarter of next year, and is in line with the government’s plans to test hydrogen fuel-cell buses in Hong Kong next year, the company said in a statement on Thursday. It is subject to government approval.
Details on its stake in the project and investment will be announced at a later date, a Hans spokesman said.
Hans, which trades refined oil and petrochemical products and owns a loading terminal, jetties and fuel storage tanks in Dongguan, Guangdong, has diversified into clean energy.
