Messer Group has installed a 95 cubic metre hydrogen tank for automotive supplier Witzenmann.
Specialising in flexible metal elements, Messer has been supplying the German company with nitrogen and hydrogen since its furnace for brazing and solution annealing of automotive components was installed in 2015.
Production capacity has since doubled with the installation of a second furnace. To meet this increased demand for hydrogen, Messer has installed the new tank at the factory site.
“It replaces the eight hydrogen bundles used until now. Safety regulations and local conditions necessitated the construction of an eight-metre-high protective wall around the tank,” Messer explained in a press release.
