Zaha Hadid Architects to Deliver Worlds First Green Hydrogen Refuelling Infrastructure- 100 Stations by 2030

Zaha Hadid Architects to Deliver Worlds First Green Hydrogen Refuelling Infrastructure- 100 Stations by 2030

Zaha Hadid Architects collaborates with NatPower to establish 100 hydrogen refuelling stations in Italian marinas, a pioneering venture in green hydrogen infrastructure. The project is supported by a €100 million investment from NatPower H, aiming for completion by 2030. Read more about the project on SURFACES REPORTER (SR):

Adoption of Green Hydrogen-Powered Vessels

The stations are designed for recreational boats and will dispense green hydrogen derived from renewable energy sources.

The initiative encourages the adoption of green hydrogen-powered vessels to replace traditional combustion engines, reducing harmful emissions. Approximately 45,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions from recreational boats could be mitigated annually.

Recyclable 3D-Printed Concrete Stations

Each refuelling station features a unique design with eight curved bays, made from 3D-printed concrete blocks and designed to be recyclable.

Innovative construction techniques, including low-carbon concrete and circular building technologies, are employed to ensure structural integrity and environmental sustainability.

Design Inspiration

The design draws inspiration from marine life geometrics, reflecting a commitment to an ecologically responsible future. 

Extensive research by ZHA's Computation and Design Research Group supports the initiative. This project highlights a broader exploration of hydrogen refuelling technologies, including innovative designs such as Philippe Starck's mirror-polished stainless-steel station.
