Air Products\\$quot; hydrogen fuelling technology has been selected by Chevron Hydrogen Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., for incorporation into hydrogen fuelling stations to be located in Michigan and Florida.
The two locations will use Air Products\\$quot; Series 300 hydrogen compression, storage and dispensing technology to be integrated by Chevron into its advanced fuelling station design.
In Orlando, Florida the station will be located near the Orlando Airport and will fuel a fleet of shuttle buses powered by modified internal combustion engines. At Selfridge, Michigan the station will be located on a United States Military base and will provide hydrogen for a fleet of light duty fuel cell vehicles.
"This is the first hydrogen fuelling equipment we have provided Chevron, and we are pleased to begin this collaborative relationship," said Dan Rabun, business development specialist for Air Products\\$quot; Future Energy Solutions area. "The goal is to advance system equipment and engineering in all aspects of safety, operability and reliability, and enhance the consumer fuelling experience."
Both stations are expected to be operational by the end of 2006.
