Hylium Industries recently released the world’s first mobile liquid hydrogen refueling station.
Korean company, Hylium Industries has unveiled what it says is the first mobile liquid hydrogen refueling station in the world. In future, such mobile hydrogen refueling stations are expected to play a key role in filling the gap when it comes to quick access to refueling stations for hydrogel fuel cell electric vehicles.
In contrast to current hydrogen fueling stations in the United States and Japan which use high-pressure gas, this new mobile station supplies vehicles with liquid hydrogen. Hylium says such stations are more efficient and safer. Hylium developed the station with support from K-ICT Born2Global Center, which helps promisibng tech startups to enter global markets.
The mobile liquid hydrogen refueling station comprises a five-ton truck equipped with fueling equipment, including a liquid hydrogen pump, vaporizer, and dispenser. It has the capacity to store up to 7,500 liters of low-pressure (3 bar) liquid hydrogen and can refuel up to 100 hydrogen-powered cars on a daily basis.. Hylium Industries said that its fueling station uses liquid hydrogen having purity exceeding 99.995 percent.
The mobile refueling station uses an 900bar liquid hydrogen pump system, which ensures there is no need for a compressor or cooling system with the outcome being lower costs for equipment and for driving.
Hylium Industries CEO Kim Seo Young said, “In addition to being a ‘green energy’ technology, hydrogen technology is a cutting-edge field in which intensive research and development is being carried out all around the world. Hylium Industries’ liquid hydrogen-based mobile hydrogen fueling station will significantly contribute to the effort to expand the liquid hydrogen supply infrastructure for hydrogen-powered cars worldwide.”
Hylium Industries was established in 2014 and is the first company in Korea which has come up with a technology for the storage of ultra-low temperature liquid hydrogen.
