Howden supplies compressors for world’s largest hydrogen refuelling station

Howden, a leading global provider of mission critical air and gas handling products, has supplied three hydrogen compressors for use in the world’s largest hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) for Hypower: the Beijing Daxing HRS in China. 

Howden’s hydrogen diaphragm compressor packages were supplied at the refuelling station and Howden’s strong brand reputation, high product quality, reliability and technological strength in the hydrogen market were key to the successful contract. 

The Daxing HRS has the capacity to produce 4.8 tonnes per day of hydrogen and refuel up to 600 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, including large vehicles such as trucks and buses. The Daxing HRS is part of the 200,000 square-meter Beijing International Hydrogen Energy Demonstration Zone.

We bring our hydrogen compression expertise of over 100 years to this growing sustainable fuel market and are pleased to support production of carbon-neutral fuels from renewable energy.”
