Resato Hydrogen Technology is a Dutch scale-up company dedicated to accelerating the energy transition in Europe, by developing best-in-class hydrogen refuelling stations in multiple configurations, fit for all types of vehicles. Its clients are typically fleet owners and commercial operators of public fuel stations.

Growth ambitions
Under public pressure, the phasing out of fossil fuels is rapidly gaining momentum. At the same time, the market growth for traditional battery powered electric vehicles is restricted, mainly due to limitations of the power infrastructure and scarcity of raw materials for batteries. Hydrogen is therefore expected to play an important role in future transport throughout Europe. Governments are stimulating hydrogen infrastructure development and are setting the pace of the current market acceleration.

Resato Hydrogen Technology has the ambition to absorb more than its fair share of the rapidly growing demand for Hydrogen Refueling Stations and is extremely well positioned to become one of the leading suppliers in Europe and beyond:

  • It has an installed base of stations which stand out in terms of safety and efficiency
  • It has full control of in-house developed high pressure technology, providing technology leadership and allowing for flexibility in R&D
  • It has an efficient assembly process resulting in low capex and high flexibility in scaling up its operations
  • It has a state-of-the-art, proprietary IoT platform, leveraging the power of data to all stakeholders
  • Collaboration with local service partners enables rapid international scalability

Resato Hydrogen Technology’s culture can be described as professional, quality driven, informal, down to earth and hands-on, but at the same time highly ambitious, proud, future oriented and optimistic.

Resato Hydrogen is headquartered in Assen, The Netherlands
