Hylium Industries recently released the world’s first mobile liquid hydrogen refueling station in South Korea. The mobile liquid hydrogen refueling station is, essentially, a five-ton truck carrying fueling equipment, including a liquid hydrogen pump, vaporizer, and dispenser. It can store up to 7,500 liters of low-pressure (3 bar) liquid hydrogen and is capable of fueling up to 100 hydrogen-powered cars per day.
The company explained that its fueling station uses liquid hydrogen with a high purity of over 99.995 percent.
Rather than the high-pressure gas currently used by similar fueling stations in the United States and Japan, Hylium’s station stores hydrogen much more efficiently and safely. The Korean-ICT Born2Global Centre, which supports promising technology companies in their efforts to enter global markets, announced that it expects the mobile liquid hydrogen refueling station developed by its member company Hylium Industries to play a key role in resolving the shortage of hydrogen fueling stations both in Korea and overseas.
