Project: Hydrogen Filling station
In cooperation with: Hydro
planning the future in 2004
In 2004, Hydro planned their first fuelling station for environmentally friendly hydrogen gas in Norway. HyNor is a national development project which researches the utilisation for hydrogen in the Norwegian transport sector by building a hydrogen highway between Oslo and Stavanger.K8 has designed a concept proposal for the Porsgrunn station in cooperation with Hydro.
The primary challenge has been to examine how a new fuel can be best introduced to the customer and how to best communicate the positive results of using hydrogen as an energy source. The cooperation with Hydro’s business centre in Porsgrunn has resulted in a clean station design, using aluminium, glass and soft lighting.
The concept communicates the project’s main aim.
