Black & Veatch Holding Company Key Developments

FirstElement Fuel Selects Black & Veatch as EPC Contractor for First Hydrogen Fueling Station Network in U.S. History

FirstElement Fuel and Black & Veatch are working to rapidly bring hydrogen fueling stations to consumers in California who want a zero emissions option for their transportation needs. FirstElement Fuel selected Black & Veatch to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) 19 refueling stations across California. The project represents the first stage of a comprehensive program for constructing a state-wide hydrogen fueling infrastructure network and is the single deployment of hydrogen fueling stations in the United States. The project is backed by grants from the California Energy Commission and by loans from Toyota. The hydrogen refueling stations will be located at existing gas filling stations across Northern and Southern California. The stations represent a critical step in supporting greater adoption of zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell technology for transportation purposes. Vehicles that use hydrogen fuel cells create a chemical reaction with the hydrogen to generate electricity and power an electric motor. Clean water vapor is the only exhaust from the vehicle. Black & Veatch signed a master services agreement with FirstElement Fuel to provide permitting, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the 19 stations. All stations will be completed in 2015.
