Coregas refuels hydrogen cars
The Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell is a hydrogen-powered, direct zero-emissions fuel cell electric vehicle. The only by-product of a hydrogen fuel cell is water vapour emitted from the exhaust pipe. To fuel the vehicle, Hyundai has installed Australia’s first hydrogen car refuelling station, at its headquarters in Macquarie Park, New South Wales.
Coregas worked closely with Air Products, an international gases company and supplier of the refuelling station, to provide a complete refuelling solution for Hyundai, including high purity compressed hydrogen.
The next stage of the project is for Hyundai to import more iX35s around Australia to test the vehicles under Australian conditions.
Wodek Jakubik, Market Development Manager with Coregas, said this is an exciting time to be involved in the project, and at such an early stage.
“Coregas has branches and suppliers all over Australia, so we can easily supply hydrogen for refuelling wherever they require,” Mr Jakubik said.
