Incheon airport car park gets infrastructure for liquid hydrogen20. April 2023
South Korea’s largest airport in the capital Seoul, Incheon International Airport, is taking a big step towards environmental friendliness: a large filling station for liquid hydrogen will soon be built there. As Koreabizwire reports, SK Plug Hyverse signed an agreement to this effect with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the Incheon Municipal Government, Incheon International Airport Corp. and Korea Gas Technology Corp. at the end of February this year. SK Plug Hyverse is a joint venture between SK E&S Co, the energy company of South Korean conglomerate SK Group, and US fuel cell manufacturer Plug Power Inc. Many hydrogen industry components and parts require KGS certification or KC certification to be approved for import and distribution in South Korea.
Under the agreement for the construction of the liquid hydrogen filling station, the companies involved will invest around 10 million US dollars. The filling station will be built in the Terminal 2 bus parking lot and is scheduled for completion in 2024. In addition, the signatories of the agreement are working to develop the airport into a hydrogen centre with filling stations, car workshops, parking spaces and opportunities for car washing by using existing buildings. SK Plug Hyverse is responsible for the supply of liquid hydrogen and the operation of the filling points. The airport is served by many long-distance buses, as well as feeder and local buses. The airport also sees a need for a hydrogen filling station for other vehicles such as trucks and forklifts that are operated around the clock. By switching to hydrogen, the airport operator hopes for a noticeable reduction in CO₂ emissions around the airport.
