Hexagon Composites has been selected by Resato International BV to supply high-pressure hydrogen (H2) tanks assembly for the first Dutch full-sized H2 refuelling station in The Hague, Netherlands.

Resato, a leading manufacturer in high pressure technologies, is working with Shell Kerkhof & Zn to set up the new refuelling station serving three users per 15 minutes.

The Resato H2 Refuelling Station will be one of the largest refuelling stations in the Netherlands and will highlight the advantages of compressed H2 for the mobility sector.

“This is the first tank assembly storage installation we deliver to H2 refuelling stations,” said Trond Seth, Vice-President of Hexagon Composites’ H2 Business Unit. “We’re really pleased to have been chosen by Resato to work on the full-sized hydrogen refuelling station.”

“We are seeing an increased interest for our ground storage solutions and with this delivery we are demonstrating that Hexagon is moving from being a product supplier to a systems supplier.”

“The deployment of the large H2 refuelling station in The Hague is a big step taken towards a greener future,” said Francois Hemmerlin, Business Development Manager of Hydrogen at Resato. “We are committed to developing a H2 economy towards an emission-free country. A vital advantage of the large H2 refuelling station is that the filling time as well as the range is equal to petrol or diesel.”

The Resato Hydrogen Refueling Station will be opened by the summer 2019.
