The Hydrogen Economy Promotion TF organized by the government visited Hoengseong County in Gangwon Province to hold a public hearing about the new KRW 3 billion hydrogen recharging station planned there. The station will procure hydrogen fuel from a production facility in Samcheok, which is currently under construction targeting 1,000kg/day capacity.
The county is planning to add 40 more hydrogen cars by the end of the year on top of its current fleet of 14 FCEVs.
The Korean government has established the Hydrogen Economy Promotion TF on January 16. The taskforce tours around the country to hold public hearings and promote hydrogen economy to communities face to face.
