Noerr advises industrial consortium on setting up a hydrogen station network in Germany
Noerr has advised Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde, OMV, Shell and Total on establishing the joint venture H2 MOBILITY Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG.
By forming this joint venture, the parties have set the course for gradually expanding the nation-wide hydrogen (H2) station network to a total of ca. 400 stations by 2023. The action plan of H2 MOBILITY provides for a comprehensive network of H2 stations throughout Germany by the year 2023. To this end, investments totalling ca. €400 million are planned.
The Noerr team led by the partners Dr. Alexander Hirsch, Dr. Alexander Birnstiel and Christof Federwisch has provided across-the-board legal advice to the industrial consortium in connection with the formation of the joint venture. The advice included, in addition to corporate aspects, especially issues of energy law, anti-trust law as well as distribution and procurement law.
“In this challenging case, we have impressively shown the capability of our firm”, says Alexander Hirsch. “For this, I would like to sincerely thank all the colleagues involved, both advisors and service professionals.”
