Cummins, the American company that focuses on development and manufacturing of engines and power products, is erecting a hydrogen fueling station within the port of Antwerp in Belgium. This charging station will supply hydrogen to road vehicles, sea vehicles, and industrial customers. Having it placed within the port will make it easily accessible both for ships as well as for car and truck drivers.


The hydrogen is produced onsite with the help of a 1.2 MW PEM electrolyzer. Cummins has already delivered upwards of 60 hydrogen fueling stations worldwide and is continuing to develop its global hydrogen network.


Auto Trendy’s take:

When it comes to commercial vehicles, hydrogen is 100% the future. The main setback for its use at the moment is the cost of developing the hydrogen fueling network. Cummins is making this investment, and if the company is able to establish itself as the main source of hydrogen, then it would certainly reap the benefits in the coming decades.
