China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) recently put its first hydrogen station in Beijing into operation. Jointly built by CNPC and Beiqi Foton Motor Co., Ltd. (Foton), the hydrogen station covers an area of about 1,700 square meters in Changping District. With a daily refueling capacity of 600 kg, it can serve 50-60 hydrogen fuel cell buses per day.
Early in February, CNPC had put into operation its first hydrogen station for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Chongli District, Zhangjiakou City, refueling more than 470 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles during the Winter Olympics test events.
