It is now possible to fill up with hydrogen at Statoil's service station at Forus near Stavanger, the company has revealed.

The hydrogen filling station, which is Norway’s first, and is part of the national HyNor – The Hydrogen Road of Norway project, set to run between Stavanger and Oslo. The project will make it possible to drive hydrogen-powered vehicles between the two cities by 2009.

This project is a good example of cooperation between the authorities, organizations, the research community and business, said transport minister, Liv Signe Navarsete, during the inauguration.

Hydrogen, natural gas and naturalhy can be filled at the station. Naturalhy is a mixture of hydrogen and natural gas.
