How a new wave of compression technology can accelerate global hydrogen adoption

Haskel has a long and established history as a leader in the design and manufacture of reliable high-pressure equipment. For 75 years, the company has pioneered innovation in compression and gas booster technology, ranging from aircraft engines to liquid pumps.

Now, as the world grapples with climate change, its Hydrogen Systems division is focused on building innovative compression and refuelling solutions to help accelerate the deployment of critical infrastructure needed to decarbonise transport. Hydrogen has a key role to play in the race to Net Zero, particularly in hard-to-abate sectors such as industry and mobility. With these sectors recognising the urgency and importance of decarbonisation, it is no surprise that we’re seeing increased interest in hydrogen refuelling systems as a crucial part of the value chain, and one where the infrastructure still needs significant development to match the expected future demand.

Recent research by The Society of Motor and Manufacturers (SMMT) found that the UK does not have a single public electric charger or hydrogen refilling station dedicated to heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), with less than 12 years until the first ban on diesel engines comes into force1.
We are, however, seeing positive global market signals, particularly in the Asia Pacific region where the market size for hydrogen refuelling stations is set to more than triple in value between 2021 and 2029, and is forecast to reach $1,053.4m by 20292.
