Quantum Fuel Systems
Technologies Worldwide, Inc., a fully integrated alternative fuel
company, has just imported several more of its hydrogen
hybrid Toyota Prius
' to Heroya Porsgrunn, Norway where they unveiled their first hydrogen refueling station. The goal that this first station is helping to be realized is a hydrogen-fueled highway between Oslo, the capitol, and Stavanger. The 360-mile route will require four additional stations, at least, which will be commissioned by 2009. The goal is to create an infrastructure throughout Scandanavia that enables hydrogen-powered vehicles to travel more freely about the country, enabling a clean mode of transportation. Norway is apparently trying to give the U.K.
a run for its money on being the hydrogen leader.
