Hydrogenics Corp., a developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and hydrogen-based power modules, has won new contracts to supply two 700-bar hydrogen fueling stations: one in California and another in the U.K.
In California, Hydrogenics partnered with station owner Ontario CNG, which was awarded a contract by the California Energy Commission to supply hydrogen fueling capability at an existing 76 fuel and electric charging location. Hydrogenics says the station will produce hydrogen by using the company's electrolyzer and certified renewable electricity.
In the U.K., Hydrogenics was awarded a contract to supply a turnkey 350/700-bar hydrogen fueling station by the City of Aberdeen, Scotland. The station is part of the Aberdeen City Hydrogen Energy Storage project and also includes a HyPM 10 kW fuel cell. Hydrogenics says that up to 130 kg of hydrogen per day will be produced on-site using the company's HySTAT electrolyzer; Hydrogenics is also under contract to maintain the equipment for the first four years of operation.
The company says these new deals bring to nine the total number of hydrogen station contracts secured during 2014.
‘This has truly been a banner year for Hydrogenics in terms of fueling station awards, which point to the growing demand for fuel-cell-powered vehicles worldwide and further strengthens our business outlook heading into 2015,’ says Daryl Wilson, CEO of Hydrogenics.
