NPROXX launches new hydrogen tank
Category: Energy & Power
NPROXX has introduced its new type four carbon fiber pressure vessel. The product was certified on 4th February (2019) by the certification authority TUV.
The pressure vessel operates at operational pressure of 500bar and has a usable H2 capacity of 6.5kh. As a result of the certification, the NPROXX product is now entirely authorized to be used for hydrogen transportation on roads according to the international regulation for transport of dangerous goods (ADR 6.2).
“This certification is a remarkable milestone for NPROXX,” said NPROXX Managing Director, Reinhard Hinterreither.
“This achievement confirms our technical approach is correct, the product is robust and market ready. It enables us to market our advanced carbon fiber pressure vessels and the provision of related services to markets across the globe,” Hinterreither continued.
The ADR 6.2 certification included burst tests, fall tests, burning, and ballistic testing and a detailed documentation process. The new invention will come into operation for the first time within a hydrogen fuel station in Germany, where 81 pressure vessels will be interconnected within a 20-foot-container to function as a hydrogen storage system solution.
