Hexagon Purus has received its first order for its hydrogen distribution systems through its subsidiary Wystrach in Germany.
The order is from Hypion, a full-service provider of green hydrogen projects. The €2.2 million order will be delivered in the first quarter of 2024.
The hydrogen distribution systems include its type 4 hydrogen cylinders, which will be used to transport hydrogen and also used as mobile storage for the green hydrogen refueling stations network in Germany.
“Our high-pressure distribution system can also be used as a mobile storage for hydrogen refueling stations, lowering both total investments and operating costs through reducing amongst other on-site fixed storage capacity and energy consumption”, explained Matthias Kötter, Head of Sales Wystrach, Hexagon Purus. “Allowing for hybrid use of our distribution systems, will enable Hypion to efficiently transport and refuel hydrogen with the same distribution system”.
The mobility sector represents approximately 20% of annual carbon emissions worldwide and hydrogen can play a significant role in reducing emissions, especially in the hard-to-abate sectors. Hydrogen does contain a carbon molecule, but to be considered truly “green” the H2 must be produced from electrolyzers powered by carbon-free energy resources.
