(Construction) - Tokyo Gas and five other companies have developed a hydrogen station at the former site of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Athletes' Village in Chuo Ward, Tokyo, with supply set to commence on March 29th.

The expected production capacity of hydrogen is 300 cubic meters per hour. Dedicated hydrogen pipelines have been laid, utilizing the energy of the "HARUMI FLAG" redevelopment project for the Athletes' Village site. An opening ceremony was held on the 27th at the site, attended by Governor Yuriko Koike and other officials celebrating the completion.

In collaboration with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, which devised the energy development plan for the Harumi FLAG area, five companies—Tokyo Gas, Harumi Eco Energy, ENEOS, Toshiba, Toshiba Energy Systems, and Panasonic—were involved in the development.

The hydrogen produced will be transported for the first time in Japan through dedicated pipelines. It is envisaged for various purposes within the Harumi FLAG, including common areas of residential and commercial facilities, as well as fuel cell vehicles, utilizing hydrogen fuel cells manufactured by Toshiba and Panasonic, with a total output of 220 kilowatts.

At the opening ceremony, Governor Koike stated, "We will accelerate the social implementation of hydrogen in terms of production, transportation, and utilization, fostering both demand and supply." Vice Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry Kazuchika Iwata hailed it as "an advanced initiative as Japan's first multi-hydrogen station," while Tokyo Gas President Shinichi Sasayama expressed determination for it to contribute to the post-Tokyo Olympics legacy in urban development.
