In addition, the partners will work on the construction of so-called “green” fuel stations. These will be used to refuel with hydrogen and generate energy at the same time. The first filling station of this kind is to be built at the beginning of next year. The first meeting of the two companies to exchange technologies also took place in October at Doosan’s fuel cell plant in Iksan, North Jeolla Province. South Korea is considered one of the most important and innovative industrial nations in the world.
