GS Caltex to open filling station for all kinds of carsGS Caltex announced Tuesday that it has started building its first “Total Energy Station” for the capital region that would allow vehicles to charge gasoline, diesel, liquefied petroleum gas, hydrogen and electricity all in one spot.
The oil refiner is planning to install a 100 kilowatt-level electric car charging station and a hydrogen fueling station next to a gas station in Gangdong District, eastern Seoul, by December this year.
The hydrogen fueling station will be able to charge more than five hydrogen-powered cars per hour and over 70 vehicles in a day. As the fueling station does not generate hydrogen gas itself but rather bring in the gas from others, GS Caltex said its to-be-completed station will be much safer for users.
GS Caltex added that construction of the Total Energy Station will help the country boost its hydrogen car sales and provide infrastructure for hydrogen-powered cars.
