CE&IG to bring hydrogen fueling stations to California, South Korea, and GermanyAugust 30, 2022
Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group was awarded multiple contracts for over a dozen locations.
Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group (CE&IG), a part of the Japanese company Nikkiso Co., Ltd group of companies, has announced that it was awarded several contracts for providing over a dozen hydrogen fueling stations that will be located in California, South Korea and Germany.
The locations are slated to become operational as early as Q4 2023 up until Q2 2024.
The hydrogen fueling stations are intended to be used by customers with light-duty, heavy-duty, and transit fuel cell vehicles requiring both H35 and H70 forms of dispensing.
The contracts involved purchase orders with a combined $60 million value. Nikkiso has committed over 150,000 square feet of floor space for mass H2 production in Murrieta, California as well as in Escondido, California and in Busan, South Korea and Neuenbürg, Germany.
Each of the refueling locations will be built for compliance with the local requirements for content. This will include the Buy America Act components of the US Hydrogen Hub market. This will help to ensure the broadest available benefit at each of those locations.
Nikkiso will begin with the hydrogen fueling stations and will then broaden its H2-related business.
The company plans to expand its business connected to H2 by solidifying its participation in the length of the supply chain and stepping outward into the global market.
CE&IG is composed of five distinct functional units. These are Cryogenic Pumps (ACD, Nikkiso Cryo); Process Systems (Cosmodyne); Heat Exchanger Systems (Cryoquip); Cryogenic Services (by way of twenty facilities worldwide); and Integrated Cryogenic Solutions (providing centralized product and project development management).
Two years ago, CE&IG further grew its H2 capabilities by acquiring what was at the time the Alternative Fuels Division at GP-Strategies. That acquisition gave the group another major Southern Californian manufacturing facility.
The group of companies is among the market leaders in cryogenic infrastructure manufacturing, engineering, design, construction and maintenance. By way of the new facility, it is bringing to California, it will provide full in-house capabilities, ranging from design, engineering and permitting via manufacturing, construction and maintenance.
When we can we have some more hydrogen filling stations in the UK?
