The new generation high capacity gaseous hydrogen station designed by Air Liquide provides upgraded technology aimed to fulfill light-duty vehicle market needs in the U.S.
With the continued growth of the hydrogen market, over 8,000 hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles on the road, and 41 operating hydrogen stations in California, Air Liquide is focused on meeting current needs while anticipating the future demand. Air Liquide’s new generation hydrogen station’s core technology has been successfully deployed in Japan, South Korea, and Europe. Building upon this proven technology, Air Liquide has enhanced the station design to meet the demand of the U.S. market, by increasing the capacity and developing dual filling positions.
Furthermore, with the increased capacity and dual fueling positions, the station will be able to improve customer experience with a reduced wait time and accommodate more customers. The high capacity station by Air Liquide has the capability of performing simultaneous fills through two fully equipped fueling positions at 700 bar, as well as dispensing up to 1,000 kg/day, to fill around 250 vehicles per day, greatly increasing current market capacities. To successfully optimize space, Air Liquide’s new generation station has a compact design (typically 24.6m2), reducing the overall footprint and allowing for an easier installation.
The new generation high capacity hydrogen station is just one of Air Liquide’s range. Complementing this station technology, Air Liquide previously announced the development of the first-of-its-kind portable hydrogen station.
