The latest initiative is in conjunction with Akershus County Authority, HYOP and Lillestrøm Centre of Expertise. Oslo Airport purchased its first hydrogen vehicle in 2014, and it is used on a daily basis for airport patrols. The airport is a big fan of Hydrogen vehicles as they are so-called zero-emission vehicles, as they only release water locally.  “It’s exciting to be able to offer hydrogen at our airport,” says the gateway’s environmental manager, Tom Erling Moen.

Akershus County Authority is providing financial support for the project. “Norway leads the world when it comes to electric cars, with incentives such as free parking in downtown areas, no fees and permission to drive in the mass transit lane in most places,” notes Solveig Schytz, head of the Committee for planning, Economic Development and Environment in Akershus County Authority.
