Green hydrogen, a competitive fuel for Danish public transport fleets
Hexagon Composites’ subsidiary Hexagon Purus has been awarded an order from Everfuel to supply two new generation X-STORE high-pressure hydrogen distribution modules. Deliveries of these distribution systems are scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.
The modules have a nominal payload capacity of 958 kg of compressed hydrogen at 300 bar and will be produced at Hexagon Purus’ production and assembly facility in Kassel, Germany. They will be used to transport hydrogen to refueling stations serving hydrogen fuel cell taxis and buses in Denmark.
“Everfuel has the clear ambition to make green hydrogen a competitive fuel in Europe. High capacity hydrogen distribution is an essential part of reaching this ambition,” said Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel. “We are very pleased to cooperate with Hexagon Purus to make the hydrogen distribution as efficient as possible”. Everfuel provides green hydrogen for larger vehicle fleets like buses, trucks and taxies.
“We are proud to support Everfuel in becoming a leading zero emission fuel distributor in Europe,” commented Hartmut Fehrenbach, Vice President Hydrogen Distribution of Hexagon Purus. “This order showcases our technology leadership and capability to offer high payload hydrogen storage systems, enabling reduced operating costs for our customers.”
