The second phase project is to build a hydrogen testing laboratory and a research and development platform for the related technologies in use. It has a maximum daily production capacity of 2,800 kgs, which can ensure the demonstration operation of 150 hydrogen fuel vehicles for the Winter Olympics.

Located in northern Beijing, the mountainous Yanqing District will host the Alpine skiing, skeleton, bobsleigh and luge competitions during the 2022 Games. Enditem
