Town of Hempstead – Point Lookout, NY
Air Products commissioned Long Island's first hydrogen fueling station for the Town of Hempstead, NY at their Conservation and Waterways headquarters in Point Lookout. The station includes an electrolyzer, hydrogen storage, an S-150 compression system, and multiple fueling dispensers which are able to provide hydrogen, a hydrogen and compressed natural gas blend, and compressed natural gas for alternative fueled vehicles. The goals of the station are to demonstrate and evaluate clean, alternative fuels as well as to educate the community on ways to reduce reliance on traditional fossil fuels and improve air quality in the process.
After years of service, Air Products existing installation at the City of Burbank was in need of an upgrade to better serve the increasing needs of 350/700 bar fueling in the Southern California metroplex. BP contracted with Air Products for a hydrogen fueling station that includes on-site generation of greater than 100 kg/day of hydrogen from natural gas. The station features Air Products' S-300 and S-700 compression products integrated with a dual hose, 350/700 bar dispenser. The dispenser is designed to allow simultaneous fuelings at both pressures, enabling the station to serve automobiles and buses with fuel tank requirements of up to 30 kg per fill.
BP, Sacramento Municipal Utility District
Air Products built a station for BP at the Sacramento Municipal District (SMUD) that uses solar power to generate hydrogen. The station, which has dispensing capability of 350 bar with cable & RFID communications is part of the DOE validation program and was successfully commissioned in June 2008 to coincide with the National Hydrogen Association meeting held in Sacramento, California. Air Products supplied the electrolyser unit which produces approximately 12 kg a day of fuel grade hydrogen which is connected to Air Products Series 200 compression system. This was a turnkey installation of onsite generation, compression, storage and dispensing; which in keeping with Air Products high safety standards was successfully completed on time with zero safety issues.
Shell Hydrogen – White Plains, NY
Air Products designed and built a hydrogen fueling station for Shell Hydrogen, located at Brockway Place in White Plains, NY. The station uses Air Products' Series 200 fueling technology, an integrated vehicle fueling system, that provides the compression, storage and dispensing of hydrogen to the vehicles. Its primary purpose is to support the rollout of General Motor's fuel cell vehicles as part of their "Project Driveway" initiative in the New York City metropolitan area. The hydrogen for this station is produced from a Proton FuelGen electrolyzer. The hydrogen fueling facility in White Plains dispenses 35 and 70 MPa hydrogen, and has the capacity to deliver 12 kilograms of compressed hydrogen per day.
University of California, Irvine
Air Products installed a dual-pressure hydrogen refueling station at the University of California, Irvine, to advance 700-bar hydrogen fuelling technology, to support hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in the region, and to learn more about hydrogen infrastructure under real-world conditions. Air Products designed, engineered and installed the station with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and California's South Coast Air Quality Management District. The station is the first deployed by Air Products as part of the California Hydrogen Infrastructure Project with the Department of Energy. Through funding and fuel cell development, automakers, including Toyota, Honda, BMW and Nissan, also support the project. The National Fuel Cell Research Center at UC Irvine operates the station, which is open to authorized users. The station is maintained by Air Products.
The installation is the first 700 bar station operating in the United States at a location with wider accessibility for vehicle fuelling. Air Products has installed prior 700 bar stations for private use at OEM facilities.
Shell Hydrogen – Washington D.C.
Air Products, was chosen by Shell Hydrogen to design and build a hydrogen fueling station, located at Benning Road in Washington DC. This station represents the first integration of hydrogen fueling technology into an existing retail gasoline station in North America. Although a sister station to the General Motors station in Milford, MI, the station incorporates an underground liquid hydrogen storage vessel to improve the overall safety of the system. The station uses Air Products' Series 200 fueling technology, an integrated vehicle fueling system, that provides the storage and dispensing of hydrogen to the vehicles. The hydrogen fueling facility in Washington DC dispenses 350 and 700 bar hydrogen, as well as providing liquid hydrogen fueling capabilities. The hydrogen fueling station has the capacity to deliver 20 kilograms of compressed hydrogen per day.
South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD)
Air Products' designed and constructed five hydrogen fueling stations for the California South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). Fueling stations are located in Burbank, Riverside, Santa Monica, Ontario and Santa Ana, and were commissioned during 2005 and 2006. In Burbank, Santa Monica and Riverside, Air Products' Series 200 system, a totally integrated vehicle fueling system, provides the storage, compression and dispensing of hydrogen to the vehicles. Hydrogen is generated onsite using electrolyzers supplied by Proton Energy Systems. The stations fill primarily Toyota Prius's that were converted to run on hydrogen (HICE). Additionally, numerous OEM fuel cell vehicles fill at these sites.
Air Products was chosen by BP to design and build three hydrogen filling stations, located in Jamestown, Florida, Detroit Michigan and Sacramento, California. The California and Michigan stations use Air Products' Series 200 fuelling technology, an integrated vehicle fuelling system, that provides the compression, storage and dispensing of hydrogen to the vehicles. Hydrogen is produced onsite using Proton PEM electrolyzers. Initially, the stations will provide fuel for vehicles provided by both DaimlerChrysler and Ford Motor Company, which include Ford's E450 shuttle bus. In addition to these three stations, Air Products has supplied BP with three HF-150 mobile fueling stations that provided fuel to vehicles during the construction phase of the permanent stations. The station in Detroit was commissioned in 2006 and Jamestown, FL in May of 2007. Commissioning of the Sacramento, CA station was completed in January, 2008.
BP – Singapore
Air Products was chosen by BP to design and build a hydrogen filling station, located in the Upper East Coast Park area of Singapore. The station used Air Products' Series 200 fueling technology, an integrated vehicle fueling system, that provided the storage and dispensing of hydrogen to the vehicles. The hydrogen fueling facility at Singapore has the capacity to dispense 150 kilograms of hydrogen per day. The station provided fuel for six cars supplied by DaimlerChrysler.
General Motors – Milford
Air Products, was chosen by General Motors to design and build a hydrogen fuelling station, located at the General Motors Proving Grounds in Milford, MI. The station uses Air Products' Series 200 fuelling technology, an integrated vehicle fuelling system, that will provide the storage and dispensing of hydrogen to the vehicles. The hydrogen fuelling facility at Milford has the ability to dispense 350 and 700 bar hydrogen. The system is supplied through a delivered liquid hydrogen system. The hydrogen fuelling station has the capacity to deliver 50 kilograms of compressed hydrogen per day.
Air Products has worked with Proton Energy Systems on a number of fuelling station projects. Air Products' supplied its Series 200 fuelling station to Proton, for a hydrogen fueling station in Burlington, VT known as e-Vermont. Air Products' Series 200 system, a totally integrated vehicle fueling station, provides the compression, storage and dispensing of hydrogen to the vehicles. Hydrogen is generated onsite using electrolyzers supplied by Proton Energy Systems.
University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Air Products supplied a Series 100 fuelling station to Proton Energy Systems for integration into a fuelling station at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. This fuelling station includes solar panels that supply a portion of the power requirements to the station.
