Japanese company unveils semi-mobile hydrogen fuelling station

Iwatani International Corporation, a Japanese energy company, and Kansai Electric Power Company have developed a liquefied hydrogen storage mobile refueling station mounted on a semi-trailer, and are going to start operations in the Kansai area.

The idea behind this is having a simpler method to deliver hydrogen by means of mobile or very small stations, which can be easily adapted to demand. They have taken key components such as liquid hydrogen tank, filling equipment, utilities equipment, etc., more compact and loaded them onto a trailer. The 2,000-liter tank can fill around 15 fuel-cell vehicles.

Because of its mobility, the refueling station will be moved to wherever it is needed, and will supply hydrogen at satellite stations to be set up by the Japan Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Demonstration (JHFC) Project, under the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
