PowerTap Hydrogen Fueling Corps’ plans for a North American hydrogen station network moved a step closer to reality today with the news the company has hired hydrogen engineering firm Cryotek.
Cryotek will provide engineering and design for the next generation PowerTap hydrogen stations, which are planned to be deployed across North America from next year (2021).
The engineering design includes:
- Next generation PowerTap onsite steam methane reformer (SMR) solution capable of producing 1,000kg+ per day
- Gaseous and liquid hydrogen storage solutions capable of 1,000kg+ or more per day
- CO2 capture solutions
- Advanced hydrogen dispensing unit
- Artist rendition of proposed final hydrogen filling station
Since 2018, Cryotek has focused on cryogenic solutions for NASA and the US Department of Energy (DOE), and on the future of liquid hydrogen as the energy of the future.
“We have spent the last few months evaluating PowerTap’s intellectual property and design and we believe that by incorporating it with our proven technology that we will clearly have the most advanced, smallest footprint steam methane reformation hydrogen production solution and liquid storage for the trucking and automobile industry,” said Cody Bateman, CEO of Cryotek.
