Oil 4 Wales (soon to be known as Green 4 Wales) has entered into an agreement to offer hydrogen refuelling infrastructure at our depots.
The collaboration, with welsh hydrogen car manufacturer Riversimple Movement Ltd, will see us providing refuellers for hydrogen-powered electric cars at our existing fuel sites, as part of our commitment to transition away from fossil fuels to clean forms of energy as we become Green 4 Wales.
Managing Director of Oil 4 Wales, Colin Owens, said: “As a proud Welsh company we are always thinking about how we can best serve our customers and communities in Wales, and giving them the choice of accessing zero emission hydrogen vehicles is a no-brainer. We already have the ideal locations and infrastructure in place to serve this market through our existing depots and forecourt network and we’ll be identifying new opportunities as the Green 4 Wales brand grows organically.”
“What resonates particularly well with us is that Riversimple are making cars in Wales, providing good quality local jobs and bringing inward investment into the Welsh economy. It also happens that the Fuel Cell was invented in 1842 by Sir William Grove, a Welshman from the Swansea Bay City region.”
Technical Director Phil Monger from the Petrol Retailers Association commented: “Our members are faced with a degree of uncertainty due to the pace of change required to transition the UK transport sector to a Zero Carbon future. It’s exciting to see our members such as Oil 4 Wales planning for the transition by giving customers an alternative to fossil fuels that’s convenient and requires little change of behaviour. I’m sure other members will want to pursue hydrogen as part of the future customer proposition for their business also”.
