HFuel Compliance

3rd March 2011

HFuel Road Compliance Achieved

ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce that its HFuel transportable hydrogen refueling product has satisfied the requirements of the UK’s Department for Transport for road use.

In preparation for the HOST (Hydrogen On Site Trials) launch, ITM Power has undertaken a thorough assessment of system safety and required approvals. This has generated a suite of documentation to evidence the legal transportation of HFuel on UK public roads with a full inventory of hydrogen and to satisfy local fire and Health & Safety authorities. This has been a significant undertaking and achievement, which demonstrates ITM Power’s thorough understanding of the relevant legislative framework and approval requirements.

As part of the assessment, the Company has created a documentary resource covering the elements required by the Dangerous Goods Division of the Department for Transport. This has involved independent pressure testing to 1.5 times working pressure, assessment by an independent ADR Notified Body and interaction with specialist chemical plant consultants.

Similarly, Revolve Technologies has subjected the HICE (hydrogen internal combustion engine) Transit vans to the appropriate level of assessment. This has included independent leak testing of on board pressure systems, crash test simulation and the implementation of a dynamic leak detection strategy. This has resulted in the vehicles being granted a Vehicle Special Order Type Approval by the Department for Transport to enable them to be used on the road whilst transporting goods for trials and demonstration purposes.

The HOST launch event on 8th March will comprise both HFuel and two HICE Transit vans.
