HyGear, A supplier of Industrial Gases Through On-Site Generation Technology has Completed the Construction and Delivery of a Hydrogen Compressor Station to the City of Riga in Latvia 

This supply contract was signed last December with Hydrogenis, an energy and electromobility industry company, to supply hydrogen to the end customer in Riga, Latvia for a hydrogen filling facility for fueling buses.

Part of the contract was including a hydrogen compressor station that is used to increase the output pressure from the Hy.GEN system.

The compressor station consists of a dual street compression line and all necessary peripherals for post treatment of compressed gases including cooling and drying. The system is built on a forty feet container skid that form the signature of HyGear products in the market.

Coupled with the compressor station are three units of Hy.GEN 50 which is an on-site gas generation system that produces hydrogen by converting natural gas with steam methane reforming.
