Hydrogen First For Swindon 

New filling station for ec-cars opens at Honda
 
A car, a taxi, an ambulance and a bus were the first to use the pumps at the new hydrogen filling station in Swindon.

The new facility is open to anyone developing or using hydrogen-powered vehicles. It can fill vehicles at both 350 bar and 700 bar, the two standard filling pressures adopted by the world’s major vehicle manufacturers - including Honda, whose Clarity hydrogen-powered model is proving popular in California.
 
Hyrogen Filling station Swindon
UK first:
the filling station at Honda Swindon
 
Built and operated by industrial gases company BOC, the venture is the result of a partnership between Honda, BOC and economic development company Forward Swindon.
 
Hydrogen highway
 
The initiative is seen as the first stage in a Government scheme aimed at carbon-free motoring.

The M4 motorway from junction 15 to South Wales is to become Britain's first 'hydrogen highway', with strategically placed refuelling points along the route for hygrogen fuelled and electric cars.
 
Predictions point to there being 'hundreds of thousands' of hydrogen-powered cars in years to come compared to just a 'handful' today.
