ACO inaugurates it’s hydrogen station in Le Mans

Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) inaugurated the Hydrogen station, located opposite the legendary 24-hour circuit.

ACO supports the hydrogen sector. There is for example the MissionH24 which must see a hydrogen prototype line up at the 24 hours of Le Mans 2024. In this context, the inauguration of the first hydrogen station in Le Mans seems natural.

It was done in the presence of Stéphane Le Foll, Mayor of Le Mans, Dominique Le Mener, President of the Departmental Council of Sarthe, Christelle Morance, President of the Pays de la Loire Region and Philippe Callejon, Director of Mobilities and News Energies of Total Marketing France.

Hydrogen is visibly supported by local players, but also ACO’s long-standing partner: Total. The oil tanker, sorry, the energy specialist is also involved in the adventure of the hydrogen prototype.

This station should initially supply the H2 SAFRA (Albigensian Automobile Manufacturing and Repair Company) Bussinova buses from the city of Le Mans, but it will be open to cars, then, later (when there are many more) to trucks hydrogen for example.
