Air Products’ (NYSE: APD) hydrogen fueling technology has been selected by Chevron Hydrogen Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., for incorporation into hydrogen fueling stations to be located in Michigan and Florida. The two locations will use Air Products’ Series 300 hydrogen compression, storage and dispensing technology to be integrated by Chevron into its advanced fueling station design.
In Orlando, Fla. the station will be located near the Orlando Airport and will fuel a fleet of shuttle buses powered by modified internal combustion engines. At Selfridge, Mich. the station will be located on a United States Military base and will provide hydrogen for a fleet of light duty fuel cell vehicles. Both stations are expected to be operational by the end of 2006.
