First Publicly Accessible Hydrogen Station Goes Up in Oahu
Servco Pacific Inc is celebrating the official opening of Oahu’s first publicly accessible hydrogen station, located at the company’s flagship Toyota dealership in Mapunapuna.
The station is able to produce 20 kg of hydrogen daily and can store about 100 kg of hydrogen on-site, enough for 12 full vehicle fill-ups.
Later in the month, Servco will begin to lease the Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, which has an EPA-estiamted range of 312 miles and a combined city/highway fuel economy rating of 66 MPGe. It will be able to fill up at the Servco station in only five minutes.
“Our hydrogen station will help show Hawaii residents how FCVs can make a real impact on our sustainability goals,” said Mark Fukunaga, chairman and CEO of Servco. “FCVs offer zero carbon emissions and zero compromise on refueling time and driving range.”

“They are complementary to hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery electric vehicles, and give customers another option to reduce their carbon footprint. We are committed to the future of mobility in Hawaii, and we believe in the potential for FCVs in our state.”
Toyota and Servco are long-time partners in Hawaii. Most recently, they launched a new car sharing service named Hui that lets customers rent Toyota and Lexus vehicles using only a smartphone app.
Hawaii is only the second state to sell the Mirai, after California. Servco brought the first Mirai production vehicles to the state in 2016, though it will be offered for lease only, including the cost of service and fuel.
