Today Air Products announced the introduction of an additional SmartFuel® hydrogen high pressure tube trailer to its fleet.
A landmark first for the European hydrogen market, the trailer will deliver large volumes of hydrogen at high pressure to Air Products’ new, publicly accessible refuelling station in Heathrow, UK. The developments are part of the FCH JU Hydrogen Transport in European Cities (HyTEC) initiative led by Air Products.
The SmartFuel® station, which Air Products’ has now successfully commissioned and permanently located in Heathrow, uses state-of-the-art technology. It has 700-bar refueling capability which is a vital specification for hydrogen vehicles expected to enter commercial operation in the next few years.
The station will now take delivery of its hydrogen from the latest SmartFuel® hydrogen high pressure tube trailer to enter Air Products’ fleet. The SmartFuel® tube trailers feature specialised composite cylinders which enable them to deliver hydrogen to fuelling stations at a pressure of 500-bar; a significant enhancement on the existing 200-bar industrial hydrogen delivery models minimising the need for onsite compression.
