Hydrogenics to supply electrolysis system at fueling station in Germany
Hydrogenics announced that it has been chosen to supply a large-scale electrolysis system to generate hydrogen at a fueling station in Germany. The customer, Maximator GmbH, is a compressor manufacturer which is building a one megawatt facility in Wuppertal to cover the daily needs of over 10 new fuel cell buses operated by WSW, the local public transit company. WSW prefers hydrogen-fueled buses over battery ones due to their higher reliability in providing power throughout the day, even on the steep terrain of Wuppertal. Surplus energy generated by a local waste incinerator will be used to power the electrolyzer and generate hydrogen. The Hydrogenics system will be delivered during 2019 and produce over 400 kilograms of hydrogen per day.
