Since January 2019 the COSMHYC XL project is working on an innovative hybrid solution for extra large scale hydrogen refuelling stations.
Although European technology manufacturers have performed significant progress in respect to the hydrogen refueling infrastructure for large scale applications, still challenges have to be addressed, e.g. reduce costs or increase the capacity of high hydrogen flow rates.
The EU-funded project COSMHYC XL is addressing these challenges and thus contributing to the expansion of hydrogen mobility for heavy mobility applications. The project’s aim is to develop a hybrid compression concept for hydrogen refueling stations with an innovative combination of a baseload metal hydride compressor, enabling a high level of reliability and a new mechanical compressor. The solution will be scalable and modular and will therefore be adapted to the diversity of large-scale mobility applications. 5 European industrial and research institutions are collaborating to achieve this goal by using the results and knowledge generated within the sister project COSMHYC (GA number No 736122).
