New Hydrogen Fueling Station and Bus Launched in The Netherlands with Hydrogenics Technology
The new station, part of the AutomotiveCampusNL in Helmond, is owned by WaterstofNet with support from the European Interreg IV Flanders-Netherlands program. The hydrogen fueling station, built by Ballast Nedham, features a Hydrogenics HySTAT™ electrolysis system designed and built by Hydrogenics Belgium-based On-Site Generation division. The station consists of a 20 ft containerized water electrolyzer that includes a water treatment system, gas purification, cooling system and a 350 bar dispenser to supply up to 65 kg of clean hydrogen fuel per day. The station will be used to fuel new prototypes of hydrogen buses and a small fleet of hydrogen powered garbage trucks. Within the next few months the station will be expanded to include a 700 bar dispenser to make it suitable for passenger cars.
