Hexagon Purus and Everfuel are working together to drive the transition to green hydrogen in several European cities.
Under a multi-year frame agreement, Hexagon Purus will supply 45-foot hydrogen trailers designed exclusively to Everfuel specifications that will be used to transport hydrogen to refuelling stations serving fuel cell electric passenger car fleets.
The trailers carry a hydrogen distribution system with a nominal payload capacity of 958 kg of compressed hydrogen at a pressure of 300 bar. The design includes advanced monitoring for improved filling efficiency.
Everfuel has ordered six of these, which are expected to be delivered in 2021, and will operate in Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands.
The deal is part of Everfuel’s strategy to connect the entire green hydrogen value chain, from production to consumption through core solutions for distribution and fueling supported by data driven optimisation.
The Danish company said it will be the first to apply a customised version of Hexagon Purus’ newly designed hydrogen distribution system following a period of joint development and implementation of Everfuel-specific functionality and IP.
The trailers will be prepared to connect to Everfuel’s Helios big data system which collects information from all Everfuel green hydrogen value-chain assets for analysis and intelligent application to drive efficiency and competitiveness.
“Safe and efficient distribution is one of the cornerstones of a successful and growing commercial green hydrogen business,” said Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel.
“We are very pleased to establish a long-term partnership with Hexagon Purus for state-of-the-art hydrogen trailers and we look forward to jointly continue developing and improving green hydrogen distribution solutions further to reduce cost and increase performance while maintaining a high level of safety.”
The agreement covers design, production and delivery of hydrogen distribution systems for Everfuel through 2025.
Everfuel will under the agreement purchase trailers for its projects as green hydrogen supply contracts are signed with end customers.
In connection with signing the frame agreement, Everfuel has previously ordered two distribution units from Hexagon Purus for delivery in early 2021.
“We are excited to continue our close collaboration with Everfuel as they work to commercialise hydrogen fuel and fight emissions in our cities,” said Michael Kleschinski, Executive Vice-President of Hexagon Purus.
“At Hexagon Purus, we are proud of our hydrogen storage technology that enables our customers to have the most cost-efficient hydrogen distribution systems on the market.”
