Gilbarco Veeder-Root announced yesterday (May 9) a technology partnership with hydrogen gas compressor manufacturers, PDC Machines.
In its pursuit of enabling hydrogen-powered transport in the future, the partnership will allow Gilbarco Veeder-Root to provide a range of compression, dispensing and software solutions, as part of its hydrogen refuelling infrastructure.
PDC Machines will now supply its hydrogen diaphragm compressor block to Gilbarco Veeder-Root, where ANGI Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilbarco Veeder-Root, will incorporate it into its hydrogen refuelling package.
Kareem Afzal, CEO at PDC Machines commented, “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Gilbarco Veeder-Root and support its vision for a network of renewable or low-carbon hydrogen refuelling stations across the United States and Europe.
“Our advanced hydrogen compression technology, coupled with Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s unrivalled experience in compressed gases and dispensing, will create a reliable, robust, and cost-effective hydrogen refuelling solution.”
The partnership comes less than a week after Gilbarco Veeder-Root unveiled its strategic mission to support future hydrogen-powered transport.
Joel van Rensburg, General Manager of Hydrogen at Gilbarco Veeder-Root said, “The hydrogen revolution is on the horizon and Gilbarco Veeder-Root is putting in place a number of strategic partnerships to ensure we can deliver on our vision of a low-carbon, zero emission future and our customers are ready and equipped with the state-of-the-art technology needed to meet the evolving consumer demand”.
“Our partnership with PDC Machines will enable us to utilise the world’s best hydrogen compressors in our state-of-the-art refuelling infrastructure, ensuring the very best service and delivery to our customers.”
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
