FIBA Technologies has supplied 12 Type II tubes for ground storage at a commercial hydrogen bus refuelling station at the Oi Thermal Power Station in Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo.
The station has on-site hydrogen production capabilities of 600 Nm3/h and is one of many more commercial hydrogen stations planned across Japan.
The station supplies hydrogen to fuel cell passenger cars and to the buses being introduced by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. It will also ship hydrogen to other hydrogen stations in the Tokyo metropolitan area. And, because the station is centrally located in the distribution network that sustains the Tokyo metropolitan economy, there are plans for it to be a hydrogen supply base for fuel cell trucks.
