Hydrogen Infrastructure Expanded in Europe

Stuart Energy Systems Corporation has sold a Hydrogen Energy Station (HES) to Sydkraft of Malmo, Sweden. Sydkraft supplies natural gas fuel to the City of Malmo’s entire bus fleet.

Washington, D.C. – March 7, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Sydkraft is one of the major power generation and distribution utilities in Northern Europe delivering electricity, natural gas and district heating to its customers. The Stuart Energy HES for Sydkraft is an intelligent hydrogen station that generates, compresses and dispenses hydrogen. This station is also capable of dispensing a blend of hydrogen and natural gas fuel to the bus fleet operating in Malmo. The Stuart Energy HES, to be installed at Sydkraft in the fall of 2003, is comprised of four modules: water electrolysis-based hydrogen generation, compression, storage and a natural gas/hydrogen dispenser and will produce about 80kg of high-purity hydrogen per day. A feature of this station is the ability of the dispenser to mix hydrogen and natural gas into a blended fuel. The ratio of hydrogen to natural gas can be set to dispense a range of blended fuel from 100 percent hydrogen to 100 percent natural gas. This will enable a full evaluation of different blends of hydrogen/natural gas fuels. The Stuart Energy station will enable Sydkraft to demonstrate and evaluate the use of a hydrogen/natural gas fuel blend as an economical and environmentally friendly fleet fuel. Adding hydrogen to natural gas results in reduced emissions from the vehicle’s tailpipe.
