Hexagon Purus to deliver mobile hydrogen refueling stations to Deutsche Bahn
Hexagon Purus, through its wholly owned subsidiary Wystrach GmbH has received an order for mobile hydrogen refueling stations and stationary storage from Deutsche Bahn.
Hexagon Purus’ mobile hydrogen refueling stations and stationary storage including its type 4 hydrogen cylinders will be used for rail and other mobile applications in Germany. The value of the order is approximately EUR 2.5 million (approximately NOK 25 million).
“Our mobile hydrogen refueling station offers a plug and play solution for our customer with one-day installation on-site”, says Matthias Kötter, Head of Sales Wystrach, Hexagon Purus. “The mobile hydrogen refueling station enables emission-free logistics and intralogistics with no limit to where it can be deployed to support hydrogen fleet adoption”.
The mobility sector is accountable for approximately 20% of annual carbon emissions globally, and hydrogen has a significant role to play in reducing these emissions, particularly in “hard to abate” sectors. Making green hydrogen available for use in amongst other the mobility sector is critical to reduce carbon emissions.
As hydrogen, a key contributor to the energy transition, continues to build momentum globally, more than 30 countries have released hydrogen roadmaps, over USD 70 billion in government funding is committed to hydrogen investments, more than 500 large-scale hydrogen projects have been announced by the industry to date and green hydrogen is projected to supply up to 25% of the world’s energy needs by 2050.
Delivery of the hydrogen mobile refueling stations and stationary storage is scheduled from Q2 2023 to Q4 2023.
