Hydrogenics Corporation has sold a hydrogen-generation and refueling system to Korean Gas Technology Corporation (KOGAS-Tech) for refueling vehicles at the KOGAS research and development facility in Incheon, near Seoul.
The hydrogen generation system reforms natural gas to produce the hydrogen—a departure (although one Hydrogenics had announced it was working on) for the company, which built its HyStat Station product line on water electrolysis.
Hydrogenics is developing natural gas reformers to expand into areas where the economics are more favorable to natural gas-based hydrogen generation than to electricity-based generation.
The reformer will generate 65 kilograms of hydrogen a day—enough to refuel approximately 20 fuel-cell powered vehicles. The reformer and refueling system is anticipated to be delivered and installed by June 2006.
