H2 Logic provides hydrogen refueling north of polar circle
H2 Logic A/S recently opened a hydrogen refueling station 150 meters north of the polar circle, at the Arctic Driving Centre in Finland. The station is based on H2Station® technology and provides 3 minutes fast fill of hydrogen at 700bar for fuel cell electric vehicles being tested by car manufacturers under extreme cold climate conditions. The station is rented by the leading Finish gas company Oy Woikoski Ab who also handles the supply of hydrogen.
Despite of an average temperature down to minus 15 degrees Celsius and sometimes as low as minus 45 degrees, fuel cell vehicles should be able to refuel long range in few minutes, just as gasoline.
Fast fill of hydrogen to any fuel cell electric vehicle at any refueling station worldwide, irrespectively of local climate, is possible thanks to various industrial and globally agreed hydrogen refueling standards such as the SAE J2601 refueling process and because of only one globally agreed nozzle design.
The H2Station® from H2 Logic provides full compliance with all applicable international standards, including refueling in accordance with the specifications in SAE J2601, thus offering 3 minutes fast fill.
During 2011 H2 Logic opened similar fast-fill stations based on the H2Station® technology in Denmark and Norway, with several more stations under manufacturing and planning during 2012.
