Over the last 20 years, we have been adapting our leading and proven Type 4 composite pressure tank technology for a wide range of mobility and storage applications in the hydrogen industry. As supplier of hydrogen storage systems to the world´s first hydrogen powered commuter train, we are your reliable partner for customized gas storage systems for rail vehicles.
Our Type 4 tanks made of full carbon fiber are able to store H2 up to a pressure level of 950 bar. The frames of our H2 storage system are made of high-strength steel or aluminium, depending on the individual requirements.
Our tanks are approved according to rail regulation codes & standards. They are equipped with a pressure regulation to achieve a constant output pressure as well as a Thermal and Pressure Relief Device (TPRD).
Fuel cell and hydrogen (FCH) technology is a promising option for replacing diesel combustion engines in rail transportation. The Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking and Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking launched this study to assess the state-of-the-art, the business case, the market potential, specific case studies and technical and non-technical barriers to the use of FCH technology in different rail applications.
We offer flexible solutions for various customer requirements adapted to individual conditions in terms of storage amount, pressure level, space and positioning inside the vehicle.
We offer reliable after sales service as well as comprehensive testing capabilities, both in-house and with external partners
We guarantee low life cycle costs and a cylinder lifetime of up to 30 years.
Our lightweight composite tanks are ideal for the marine environment due to their corrosion resistance and low cost for periodic inspection.
We continue to strengthen the value proposition of CNG for railways in North America.
