Hydrogen Fueling Station

Japanís first public hydrogen fueling station was commissioned on February 7, 2002. The station is located at the Technical Center of Osaka Gas in Osaka, Japan, and is available to any automobile manufacturer to demonstrate to the public how hydrogen powered vehicles may be serviced in the future.

Details of this system were presented June 2002 at the 14th World Hydrogen Energy Conference in Montreal, Canada.

The hydrogen fueling station is equipped with metal hydride and high pressure gas hydrogen storage systems. JMC designed and built the safe low pressure metal hydride hydrogen storage system.

This photograph shows JMC's 60 Nm3 capacity low-pressure hydrogen storage system which may be:

Charged with hydrogen at a rate of 30 Nm3 per hour at 0.85 MPa and 32 C (125 psi and 90 F)
-- and --
Discharged to a hydrogen powered vehicle at a rate of 150 Nm3 per hour at 0.80 MPa and 70 C (120 psi and 160 F)

JMC also produces a larger hydrogen fueling station with 90 Nm3 capacity low-pressure hydrogen storage system which may be:

Charged at a rate of 30 Nm3 per hour at 0.85 MPa and 32 C (125 psi and 90 F)
-- and --
Discharged at a rate of 170 Nm3 per hour at 0.80 MPa and 70 C (120 psi and 160 F)
