Hydrogen refueling stations in Poland with secured production

The refueling of hydrogen should start in Poland in 2021. The first stations were to be launched by Lotos in Gdańsk and PGNiG in Warsaw. However, the Rzeczpospolita daily newspaper reports that the station’s commissioning is postponed to 2022. The production of hydrogen is not endangered and should start in 2021. Pure “five nines” hydrogen is to be produced in Trzebinia from 2021, and soon also in Gdańsk and Włocławek.

Hydrogen production in Poland will be produced in several installations. The electrolyser at Rafineria Trzebinia belonging to the Orlen Group is the closest to commissioning. Another installation is to be launched soon at the Gdańsk Refinery, which belongs to Lotos. Also in the queue are PGNiG electrolyser in Odolanów and Anwil’s electrolyser (Orlen Group) in Włocławek. One should not forget about the PAK Group electrolyser under construction in Konin. All installations will produce the purest hydrogen with a content of 99.999% (the so-called five nines).

The refueling of hydrogen in 2021 was to start in Gdańsk and Warsaw. Lotos is working intensively to launch a hydrogen station in Gdańsk Osowa as part of the PureH2 project. However, the date 2021 is no longer certain here. The opening of the hydrogen station in Warsaw belonging to PGNiG will also be postponed to 2022. The issue of opening a hydrogen station in Konin, belonging to the PAK Group, remains open – here a clear declaration was made that the station will be launched at the end of 2021. In 2022, a hydrogen station for MPK Poznań is to be launched, which plans to deliver the first buses with a hydrogen cell next year. Municipal carriers planning to purchase fuel cell buses – Kraków and Chełm are also planning their hydrogen refueling stations. What is certain, however, is the commissioning of two Orlen-owned hydrogen stations in the Czech Republic at Benzina stations in 2021.
