EMS Develops New Hydrogen Storage System

500 bar stationary solution for Hydrogen Fuelling Stations to store more than 1000 kg of Hydrogen.
EMS starts the development of a new Hydrogen Storage System. The EMS storage solution will be designed to store more than 1000 kg of Hydrogen (H2) at a nominal working pressure of 500 bar. The system contains high-strength lightweight composite (CFRP) pressure vessels (type 4) which will be embedded in standard containers to serve at H2 fuelling stations. With the new system EMS will add an innovative solution to the emerging H2 infrastructure business.
