Dr. Ivar Kruusenberg, the Founder and CEO of PowerUP Energy Technologies, has big ambitions for hydrogen cabinets. “We’re planning to open more cabinets not only in Estonia, but in Finland, Sweden, France and maybe in England. This is one of the first steps: to open this [Estonia’s] first, see how it works and then get the next cabinets opened as well, hopefully this year.”
The start-up company said the new hydrogen cabinet, situated at Alexela’s refuelling station at the Kakumäe harbour in Tallinn, Estonia, is a first-of-its-kind, and is targeted towards small application users including sailing boats, yachts and campervans.
The smart cabinet is fully automated and filled with lightweight hydrogen cylinders that have been supplied by PowerUP Energy Technologies. With minimal human contact, the smart cabinets will be operated by a mobile payment system application called Paytailor which makes mobile payments easy for its customers.
The launch of the pilot hydrogen smart cabinet in Estonia is a simple and cost-effective solution to hydrogen distribution and based on the response from the customers in Estonia, it is planned to be duplicated in other European countries as well.
