Under a Memorandum of Understanding between the United States Air Force and the State of Hawaii, HydraFLX was selected to start up the National Demonstration Center for hydrogen and renewable technologies at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam in Hawaii, to advance the use of hydrogen in military ground support and commercial applications, drive down the cost of safe, deployable infrastructure, and develop seamless integration with renewable energy. Three hydrogen technologies initially demonstrated at JBPHH are used in commercial markets today. Two PDC hydrogen compressors were part of this system.
California State University, Los Angeles, through its Power, Energy and Transportation curriculum, has embarked on a long range effort to become a leader in the area of teaching sustainable energy systems and to engage in relevant applied research to mitigate the chronic problems of fossil fuel energy dependence and air pollution. The centerpiece of the University’s effort is the construction and deployment of a sustainable hydrogen production and dispensing facility. Vehicle: Hydrogen powered internal-combustion engine Toyota Prius. Dispenser: The hydrogen dispenser. Hydrogen Compressors: PDC Machines.
Hydrogen Fueling Station Open in Norway with Hydrogenics Electrolyzers and PDC Machines Compressors. The city of Oslo, Norway inaugurated a hydrogen fueling station which uses two Hydrogenics HySTAT™ Electrolyzers and PDC Machines diaphragm compressors to convert renewable electricity to hydrogen fuel.
The construction of the station was awarded to Air Liquide who will operate and maintain the site for 5 years. Hydrogenics supplied two HySTAT™ 60 Electrolyzers that produce hydrogen fuel from water and electricity. This station has a total capacity of 260kg/day which will be used to fuel 5 Van Hool buses which are now onsite and will be operating on a normal transit line from the Roseholm bus to the Royal Palace. It is anticipated that the 13 meter-long buses will run between 400,000 and 450,000 kms over the next 5 years. Electricity at the station is guaranteed to come from 100% renewable energy sources.
Hydrogen Fueling Station Open in Switzerland with Hydrogenics Electrolyzers and PDC Machines Compressors. On May 22nd, Carbagas AG a fully owned subsidiary of Air Liquide officially opened a hydrogen fueling station near Zurich, Switzerland equipped with a Hydrogenics HySTAT™ Electrolyzer. The HySTAT™ is capable of providing 130kg/day of renewable hydrogen at 350bar. Based at the PostAuto bus garage in Brugg (35km north west of Zurich) the station supplies hydrogen fuel to 5 Citaro FuelCell buses which will be used in regular public transport. Post Auto is the largest public bus operator in Switzerland with over 2,000 vehicles in operation. Postauto made the investment, backed by both European funding (under the CHIC project) and National funding.
