- WyCarrier storage systems for Infraserv Höchst project
Weeze/Frankfurt– Infraserv Höchst has chosen Wystrach as a systems supplier for its hydrogen refueling station under construction in Frankfurt.
For this project, Wystrach, a family-owned company based in Weeze, Germany, is providing four 500-bar WyCarrier hydrogen storage systems.
The hydrogen refueling station, which is scheduled to open in 2022, will be used for trains that run on fuel cells.
“With four 40 ft containers, the storage system has the capacity to hold 4,400 kg of hydrogen. When integrated into the planned refueling station infrastructure, the storage system will be able to service all 27 of the fuel-cell trains currently envisaged for the fleet,” says Elmar Horn, Technical Project Manager at Infraserv Höchst.
Wystrach designs develops and builds containers in Weeze, Germany. “The system incorporates Type IV cylinders for 500-bar storage, providing an optimum cost-benefit ratio,” says Wolfgang Wolter, CEO Sales at Wystrach. “What’s special about our hydrogen storage system is that it’s essentially a stationary solution, but if required, it can be transported on a chassis. ADR certification offers great flexibility for this use case.”
