Connecticut Lies at Center of H2 Refueling Network Deal

LuftCar and PowerTap Agree to Create Network of eVTOL, Car, and Utilities Stations for Hydrogen Fuels

LuftCar Corp announced a memorandum of understanding with PowerTap Hydrogen Fuel Incorporation to embark on a joint promotion of hydrogen infrastructure for transportation, utility, and industry.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the agreement is the intent to create a network of hydrogen refueling stations throughout the state of Connecticut, called LuftPads. The H2 corridors will be strewn all over with the intent to support the fueling needs of eVTOL aircraft, road vehicles, and utilities. Powertap will enable hydrogen availability in the LuftPads themselves, while LuftCar will manage the operation.

“We are excited to join forces with LuftCar to promote hydrogen fuel cell technology in Connecticut,” said Salim Rahemtulla, CEO of PowerTap Hydrogen Fueling Corp. “Our on-site hydrogen fueling stations, coupled with LuftCar’s cutting-edge eVTOLs, will provide a comprehensive solution for clean and efficient transportation and cargo distribution in the state, paving the way for a greener and more sustainable future.”

“We are thrilled to collaborate with PowerTap to establish hydrogen refueling stations in Connecticut,” said Santh Sathya. “Our eVTOLs powered by hydrogen fuel cells have the potential to revolutionize air transportation, and with PowerTap’s expertise and unique intellectual property in hydrogen fueling infrastructure, we can provide a complete solution for our customers, making hydrogen fuel readily available for air, road, and utility applications."
