December 13 (Renewables Now) - French industrial gases supplier Air Liquide (EPA:AI) and Spanish gas infrastructure company Redexis SA will analyse the potential for establishing a network of up to 100 hydrogen refueling stations in Spain before 2030, Air Liquide Iberia said on Monday.

The two companies signed a collaboration agreement committing to jointly work on the project, which they named DESIRE H2, proposing to mainly target the heavy vehicle mobility.

The stations would be strategically located in the main logistics centres, such as Madrid and Barcelona, and at major corridors that connect Spain to the rest of Europe -- the Mediterranean and Atlantic corridors.

The ultimate goal is to accelerate the development of hydrogen-powered vehicles in Spain and reduce the transport sector’s carbon footprint, Air Liquide’s unit for Spain and Portugal stated.

The proposal for the DESIRE H2 project was submitted to the Spanish ministry for the ecological transition, and to the EU’s Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI) programme. It has also been selected by the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, according to Air Liquide.
