German-Dutch engineering company EMS has developed a new hydrogen (H2) storage system as an innovative solution for the budding H2 infrastructure business.

The EMS storage solution has been designed to store more than 1,000kg of H2 at a nominal working pressure of 500 bar.

The system contains high-strength lightweight composite pressure vessels (Type 4) which will be embedded in standard containers to serve at H2 fuelling stations.

EMS Managing Director Pieter Folkers emphasised, “Future mobility lies beyond fossil fuels. H2 will become part of the energy mix of the future, for energy storage as well as for global emission-free mobility.”

“H2 fuelling is not only a topic for individual transportation but will be of particular attraction for buses, trains and heavy duty applications.”

The EMS storage system will make its debut at Hannover Messe 2017, which takes place from 24th-28th April in Germany.
