On the basis of the H2 Mobility initiative which was established in September 2009 – as previously announced – a joint venture has been initiated. At the end of 2014, the partners Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde, OMV, Shell and Total completed the final steps required to establish the company H2 Mobility Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG. The new company, which is based in Berlin, has been in its development phase since January 2015. Frank Sreball is its Managing Director. His goal is to get approximately 400 H2 filling stations up and running and under the company’s operation by the year 2023. The partners initially concluded a basic agreement on the development of a nationwide network of H2 filling stations for fuel cell vehicles (comprising of 50 stations by 2015), which is now set for further expansion.
