The CSA Group has developed on-site evaluation testing equipment for hydrogen (H2) fuelling stations to help advance the safe deployment of clean energy.
Mass adoption of clean energy for transportation is highly dependent on the safe deployment of a fueling infrastructure. CSA Group’s mobile H2 dispenser testing apparatus (HDTA), and weights and measures device (WAM-D) validates H2 dispenser performance in accordance with ANSI/CSA HGV 4.3 and verifies point of sale accuracy following NIST Handbook 44.
Without a mobile test device like the HDTA, station owners must wait for each automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to bring a vehicle to their station for testing. The HDTA replaces the need for OEM vehicle testing at each station, reducing test time and associated costs.
Rajiv Rajput, Executive Vice-President of Strategic Development at CSA Group states, “CSA Group is proud to promote the advancement of a safe H2 fuelling infrastructure.” He continued, “We are excited to offer this testing service to our customers, helping them efficiently deploy and commission H2 fuelling stations.”
CSA Group representatives will be exhibiting and presenting during the Fuel Cell Seminar & Energy Exposition in Long Beach, California from 7th-9th November.
