JÜLICH, Germany -- 500 bar stationary solution for Hydrogen Fuelling Stations to store more than 1000 kg of Hydrogen.

EMS starts the development of a new Hydrogen Storage System. The EMS storage solution will be designed to store more than 1000 kg of Hydrogen (H2) at a nominal working pressure of 500 bar. The system contains high-strength lightweight composite (CFRP) pressure vessels (type 4) which will be embedded in standard containers to serve at H2 fuelling stations. With the new system EMS will add an innovative solution to the emerging H2 infrastructure business.

The future of mobility lies beyond fossil fuels 

"The future mobility lies beyond fossil fuels", says EMS Managing Director Pieter Folkers. "Hydrogen will become part of the energy mix of the future, for energy storage as well as for global emission-free mobility. Hydrogen fuelling is not only a topic for individual transportation but will be of particular attraction for busses, trains and heavy duty transport applications."

First appearance at Hannover Messe 2017 

Within this funded project, 40 years of unique expertise in composite development and winding will be used for the first time in the context of H2 fuelling. EMS is present at Hannover Messe: 24-28 April 2017, hall 27, E40.
