ITM Power's hydrogen on-site trials
ITM Power's transportable hydrogen refuelling station (HFuel) is a self-contained module suitable for refuelling hydrogen-powered road vehicles and forklift trucks.
It 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 rollout of hydrogen fuel.
Hydrogen on-site trials (HOST) of ITM's transportable high pressure refueling unit (HFuel) that is currently being built with support from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and partners Gateway to London and Revolve Technologies, as announced in February 2010.
Commencement of HOST will begin in 2011, and will encompass the operation and refueling of two HICE (hydrogen internal combustion energy) Revolve Technologies Ford Transit vehicles with hydrogen produced on site at the point of use, at sites operated by participating companies and in the Gateway to London development area.
Membership of HOST provides each partner with a one week free trial of HFuel and the two Revolve HICE transit vehicles, and an option to lease both HFuel and vehicles for additional week(s). The demonstrations are 100% managed and operated by ITM personnel in liaison with site owners’ operations and management.
