In January this year, HyGear shipped an ASME certified HGS-C system to North America. The system will generate hydrogen to fill hydrogen cylinders in order to provide decentralised users with merchant gas.
The great advantage of the innovative HGS-C system is that it simplifies the logistics significantly, as it produces hydrogen from natural gas on-site. This prevents the necessity to truck centrally produced hydrogen to the cylinder filling station with tube trailers.
The HGS-C system has a hydrogen production capacity of over 100 Nm3/h in a hydrogen purity range from 2.5 up to 5.0.
HyGear has installed a hydrogen generation system at DB Schenker’s facility in Linz, Austria, capable of providing hydrogen for 10 forklift trucks for at least one year.
Industrial glass furnaces produce between 50 to 800 tons of glass per day, 365 days of the year. In many cases natural gas is used as a source to heat the furnace. Unfortunately, a large amount of the energy supplied to the furnaces is lost through flue gases.
Houston, Texas, based Thigpen Energy has selected Chart for the provision of LNG fueling equipment and supplies – with construction already underway. Earlier this week it was announced that the company’s eastern European outfit, Chart Ferox, was chosen to construct LNG filling station in Poland.
