Maike Friedenberg, Lead Partner GREATER4H, Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Areas, European Affairs and Consumer Protection Schleswig-Holstein

The GREATER4H project will develop a hydrogen corridor by deploying 14 hydrogen refueling stations in the STRING Megaregion from Hamburg to Oslo. GREATER4H is a public-private partnership between local and regional governments and three private hydrogen companies; Everfuel, Hynion, and GP Joule. The three companies will be implementing 4 HRS in Germany, 4 HRS in Denmark and 4 HRS in Sweden. The  stations will be placed in locations that secure a maximum distance of 150 km between stations on average. The stations will be 24/7 accessible with 350 and 700 bar dispensers open to the public.
