HFuel is well suited to small fleet and early ‘hydrogen highway’ applications of both fuel cell and hydrogen engine vehicles (FCV and HICEV). It is based around a modular platform (standard freight containers) and can be expanded at any point after the initial installation enabling a staged roll-out of hydrogen fuel.
HFuel generates hydrogen by electrolysis, compresses it, stores it and dispenses the gas on demand at high pressure (nominally 350 bar/35MPa). It requires an on-site water and an electricity supply but is otherwise an autonomous solution for refuelling hydrogen-powered vehicles.
As HFuel is based on an electrolyser, it is uniquely able to produce zero-carbon hydrogen if linked to a renewable power source or a supply of ‘green’ electricity. The fuel delivered to the vehicle is then carbon-free and no atmospheric carbon emissions result from its use.
Unlike battery recharging stations HFuel enables the user to quickly recharge a vehicle to 100% capacity. This enables hydrogen to be used to decarbonise return-to-depot and shift work vehicles that have a higher daily mileage requirement.
HFuel provides a pathway for eradicating emissions associated with light duty commercial vehicles and materials handling in warehouses and factories.
