[월간수소경제 박상우 기자] The Hynet Daejeon Jungchon Hydrogen Charging Station built by the Hydrogen Energy Network (hereafter Hinet) will begin commercial operation on the 21st after completing pilot operations such as facility stabilization.
The Hinet Daejeon Jungchon hydrogen charging station was selected by the Ministry of the Environment in the ‘Private Capital Subsidy Project for the Installation of Hydrogen Electric Vehicle Charging Stations’ and was completed with a total investment of 3 billion won, including 1.5 billion won by the government.
Hinet Daejeon Jungchon Hydrogen Charging Station is located in Jungchon-dong, Jung-gu, Daejeon Metropolitan City, and was built as a hybrid hydrogen and LPG charging station by using a disused site next to the existing LPG charging station. Jungchon-dong, Jung-gu, where the charging station is located, is a newly developed area in Daejeon, and has the geographical feature of being in the middle connecting the area around Ginkgo-dong, Daejeon’s original downtown , and Dunsan-dong, the new city.
In particular, it is expected that the accessibility of hydrogen electric vehicle drivers will further increase as there are clusters of residential facilities such as apartments nearby.
Due to the recent shortage of hydrogen supply and demand, Hynet adjusted the opening schedule of the Daejeon Jungchon Hydrogen Refueling Station, and with the support of the Ministry of Environment, Geumgang Basin Environment Agency, and Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall, was able to quickly proceed with the licensing and licensing relating to the establishment and operation of the hydrogen refueling station.
The Hinet Daejeon Jungchon Hydrogen Refueling Station is open 12 hours a day from 8 am to 8 pm and is closed on Mondays. It includes a hydrogen compression kit that can charge 25 kg per hour and high and medium pressure compressed gas facilities, so that cars and buses can be charged.
It can charge an average of 70 cars per day (based on the Nexo) and 14 or more per day for buses. Recharging takes about 3 to 6 minutes per unit, and the selling price of hydrogen is 8,800 won/kg.
With the opening of the Daejeon Jungchon Hydrogen Refueling Station, Hinet operates a total of 33 units nationwide and operates the largest hydrogen refueling station in Korea. In addition, in August, Hinet Incheon Airport’s T2 hydrogen charging station pilot operated the first self-hydrogen charging station in Korea, and is promoting various projects in taking the lead in promoting the safety and eco-friendliness of hydrogen energy.
