The first three trailers (Jumbo) have a maximum payload of 17,990 US gallons, and the remainder of the trailers will be ‘B’ Train single axle trailers.

CRYOLOR engineers designed the LT18-155 PSIG unit to have the largest capacity of any commercial hydrogen trailer in order to maximise distribution efficiency and provide the largest payload to a customer on each delivery. It is 16 metres long and nearly four metres high.

The inner vessel is designed to meet the requirements of ASME Section VIII Division 1 while the overall trailer meets or exceeds each standard imposed by DOT MC-338, according to CIS.

Jim Payne, Vice-President of Business Development at CIS, said: “We are very excited to be part of the developing hydrogen market by supplying solutions for storage and transportation to all of our industry partners.”

CIS provides over-the-road expertise and localised cryogenic expertise from US locations at WesMor Cryogenics in Magnolia (near Houston), Texas and Alloy Custom Products in Lafayette, Indiana.

CRYOLOR specialises in designing and manufacturing cryogenic equipment for transport and storage of liquefied gas.
