New hydrogen station opens in Munich – using Linde technology


Today, the TOTAL Multi-Energy fuelling station in Detmoldstrasse, Munich, opened its doors to drivers of hydrogen fuel-cell cars. Equipped with innovative refuelling technology from Linde, the station is now home to the only public hydrogen fuelling service in the Bavarian state capital.

Linde was commissioned by TOTAL and BMW, which will be the hydrogen station’s main user, to install its high-pressure cryogenic hydrogen pumps – also known as cryopumps – at the site in Detmoldstrasse.

The technology was developed in-house by Linde and is designed to directly compress cryogenic liquid hydrogen stored at -253 degrees Celsius.

“Linde is harnessing its expertise in cryogenic gases to reduce the amount of energy and storage space required at an integrated multi-energy fuelling station,” explains Dr Andreas Opfermann, Head of Technology & Innovation at Linde.
