Millbrook Proving Ground opens hydrogen fueling station
12 September 2012
One of Europe’s leading test and development facilities for whole vehicles, components and systems, Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, UK, has opened a new Air Products SmartFuel hydrogen fueling station as it prepares for a take-off in fuel cell vehicles.
The fueling station was officially opened by Business Minister Michael Fallon, and makes Millbrook the only vehicle testing site in the UK with its own hydrogen fueling station.
The SmartFuel hydrogen fueling station offers dual pressure fueling capability (350 and 700 bar), and it will be the country’s only mobile hydrogen station capable of refueling both buses and cars. It is the only UK station that has been fully certified by General Motors to J2601, which means it is fully compliant with safety limits and performance requirements for gaseous hydrogen fuel dispensers.
The fueling station has been supplied and installed by Air Products, which has also recently provided a station to Transport for London to power one of the largest hydrogen-fueled bus fleets in Europe. As well as recently opening fueling stations in Freiburg and Hamburg, as co-ordinators of the EU funded HyTEC project Air Products has just opened a new fueling station at Heathrow airport to power a set of fuel cell taxis.
