ADNOC has opened “H2GO”, a high-speed green hydrogen pilot refuelling station, to test a fleet of zero-emission hydrogen-powered vehicles 

The station, operated by ADNOC Distribution on land provided by Masdar, will create green hydrogen from water using an electrolyser powered by clean grid electricity. The pilot will be used to gather data to understand the long-term viability of hydrogen vehicles in the UAE. It is supported by the Integrated Transport Center in Abu Dhabi, and the high-speed refueller was provided by Linde. Throughout the pilot, the fleet of hydrogen vehicles are being provided by Toyota, Al Futtaim Motors and BMW, and will be tested by taxi companies, including Tawasul.

Musabbeh Al Kaabi, ADNOC executive director, Low Carbon Solutions and International Growth, said, “We are pleased to launch this unique high-speed green hydrogen refuelling station which supports the UAE’s National Hydrogen Strategy. ADNOC continues to collaborate with local and international companies on innovative technologies and low-carbon solutions that can accelerate decarbonisation and support a responsible energy transition.”

Eng. Bader Saeed Al Lamki, CEO of ADNOC Distribution, said, "In line with the UAE’s Net Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative, we are committed to providing sustainable mobility solutions and supporting the energy transition. The opening of the region’s first high-speed green hydrogen pilot refuelling station, H2GO, demonstrates our commitment to leverage technology and innovation, and to capitalise on partnerships to deliver low-carbon solutions to customers.”
