VANCOUVER, British Columbia and IRVINE, Calif., July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PowerTap Hydrogen Capital Corp. (NEO: MOVE) (FWB: 2K6B) (OTC: MOTNF) (“PowerTap” or the “Company” or “MOVE”) provides an update on municipal approvals and the corporate development activities of PowerTap Hydrogen Fueling Corp., a 100 percent owned subsidiary of PowerTap.

PowerTap Hydrogen Fueling Corp. submitted application for design review to the County of Monterey for the Carmel Center station site in mid-May and expects the County to hold a design review hearing in October 2022. Following the design review hearing, PowerTap will submit application for construction permits following finalization of engineering design in Q4 2022. Regarding PowerTap corporate development activities, the company has been spending considerable time and effort, specifically developing relationships with fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) manufacturers, oil and gas companies, and fuel transportation companies in support of its plan to establish light-duty and heavy-duty FCEV hydrogen refueling stations. Additionally, PowerTap has been engaging with leading component technology partners in supply chain development for PowerTap’s assembly of its Generation 3 Modular Hydrogen Production and Dispensing Unit (MHPDU). Further, with an understanding that the hydrogen production technology landscape is developing different pathways for the next few decades in the world’s effort to address climate change, PowerTap is also working with prospective technology partners to explore these various next generation products.

As previously reported in its May 19, 2022 news release, the Company has already received approval from the City of Fortuna (California) Planning Commission for its site design at another location, located in Fortuna, Humboldt County California.
