Norway Hydrogen Highway Finished

Norway Hydrogen Highway Finished

The U.S. may have cut funding for hydrogen fuel cell research, but that doesn’t mean that hydrogen powered vehicles are done.

Norway recently finished building its first hydrogen highway. The HyNor project is a 580 stretch from east coast to west starting in Oslo and ending in Stavanger with 12 hydrogen filling stations along the way.

HyNor is apparently the world’s first integrated network of hydrogen pumps and is owned and operated by StatoilHydro. Plans have already been prepared that would see the hydrogen highway extended further into the rest of Scandinavia and, if all goes according to plan, all the way into Germany.

The Norwegian government recently imported the Mazda Hydrogen RX-8 RE (pictured above). Thirty of them actually to be specific. They will be available for lease in Norway this summer.
