German-Dutch engineering company EMS has begun development of a new hydrogen storage system designed to store more than 1000kg of hydrogen (H2) at a nominal working pressure of 500 bar.
The system contains high-strength lightweight composite (CFRP) pressure vessels (type 4) which will be embedded in standard containers to serve at H2 fuelling stations. With its new system EMS is aiming to add an innovative solution to the emerging H2 infrastructure business.
"The future mobility lies beyond fossil fuels", says EMS MD Pieter Folkers. "Hydrogen will become part of the energy mix of the future, for energy storage as well as for global emission-free mobility. Hydrogen fuelling is not only a topic for individual transportation but will be of particular attraction for busses, trains and heavy duty transport applications."
EMS is attending next week's Hannover Messe event (April 22-24) in Hall 27, stand E40. For more information, visit www.ems-evolves.com.
