A hydrogen refuelling station, with a distribution capacity of 700kg per day, is to be constructed in Strasbourg, France, as part of the R-Hynoca project.
As part of the large capacity hydrogen refuelling station, the equipment supply will include 350-750 dual bar pressure refuelling allowing for the refuelling of light vehicles as well as buses and trucks.
With a capacity of 700kg per day, the station will be capable of refuelling the equivalent of 30 buses, or 70 light commercial vehicles, or 150 light vehicles.
The station will also be equipped with a refuelling point for pressurised hydrogen cylinders (tube trailers) that will be carried to be used in mobility or industrial applications elsewhere than the hydrogen production point.
The R-Hynoca project aims to produce green, carbon-neutral hydrogen from local biomass.
The commissioning of this new station and refuelling interface is slated for the end of 2022.
Luc Poyer, Chairman and acting CEO of McPhy, said, “We are very pleased with McPhy’s participation in this innovative project located in the heart of the Strasbourg metropolis at the crossroads of Europe.
“The R-Hynoca project, with its decentralised approach, illustrates the complementarity of the different green hydrogen production and distribution methods based on the diversity of the territories, to which McPhy’s diversified offer perfectly responds.”
Augmented clean hydrogen solutions – An interview with McPhy
The hydrogen energy market is booming. International organisations like the Hydrogen Council, the International Energy Agency (IEA), KPMG, and many others now claim that hydrogen is simply unavoidable if we are to succeed in the energy transition.
In 2050, it is projected, around 18% of the worldwide energy consumption will be derived from hydrogen, which will in turn contribute to 20% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) abatement required to achieve a 2°C global warming limit scenario.
