Start of construction work on HRS in Brussels

On the 2nd of October 2015 the first stone of the SWARM hydrogen refuelling station was laid on the Toyota premises in Zaventem and was attended by the Flemish Minister for the Budget, Finances, and Energy, Annemie Turtelboom.

This station will be the first public hydrogen refuelling station in Belgium and is built as part of the SWARM project. The Zaventem station can refill between 30 and 40 cars a day with each refill taking less than 5 minutes and will be operational by mid-2016 to connect Belgium to the European hydrogen network.

First stone of the SWARM hydrogen refuelling station has been laid on the Toyota premises in Zaventem in the presence of the FCH JU Executive Director, Bert De Colvenaer (left) together with Minister A. Turtelboom (middle), and D.Luijten, Air Liquide (right).


Through their hydrogen expertise, Air Liquide and Toyota are playing a leading role in the shifting energy paradigm. Creating a "hydrogen society" requires a co-construction approach in which governmental support and partnerships with traditional energy suppliers and automakers are essential.
