Nikkiso CE&IG wins hydrogen station contracts; ClearSign Technologies supplies Enclosed Oxidizer
Nikkiso Group aims to further expand their hydrogen-related business by strengthening its participation in the hydrogen supply chain and expanding into the global market.
Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group (a part of the Nikkiso Co., Ltd (Japan) group of companies) won multiple contracts to provide over a dozen Hydrogen Fueling Stations (HFS) to customers in California and South Korea.
These stations, intended to be operational between Q4 2023 and Q2 2024, cover fueling stations for light-duty, heavy-duty, and transit fuel cell vehicles that need H35 and H70 dispensing.
The purchase orders have a combined value of almost US$60 million. Nikkiso has dedicated over 150,000 ft2 (14,000 m2) square feet of floor space to mass-produce hydrogen fueling stations in Murrieta, CA, Escondido, CA, Busan, S. Korea, and Neuenbürg, Germany. Every station will be manufactured to comply with the local content requirements, including the Buy America Act for the US Hydrogen Hub market.
Peter Wagner, CEO of Nikkiso CE&IG, said, “As an ambassador member of the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP) and core leader of cryogenic technology, Nikkiso is key in connecting the hydrogen ecosystem to advance the clean energy agenda.”
Joseph Pak, President of Nikkiso Integrated Cryogenic Solutions, said, “We are pleased to offer flexible and scalable commercial and technical offers where our customers need us the most: from equipment fabricator to turnkey EPC solutions.”
