The mobile hydrogen station, the WyRefueler from Wystrach GmbH, has been deployed at Geldhauser near Munich, one of the largest private bus companies of Bavaria.
The 'WyRefueler' mobile hydrogen refueling station ensures a reliable supply of hydrogen to the 350 bar test vehicles. CEO Wolfgang Wolter said: “We were able to set our system up on-site in Hofolding in under a day. All the customer needed was a 63 A power connection.” Designed to supply 350 bar vehicles, the refueling station can also fill 700 bar vehicles up to a target pressure of 400 bar.
“As a bus company, we are keen to test the suitability of hydrogen technology under everyday conditions,” says Martin Geldhauser, CEO of the Geldhauser Group and host of the HyBayern Hydrogen Days. Starting at the Geldhauser premises, the different bus models completed test drives on three different test routes. Geldhauser says: “It’s important for us to compare fuel economy, handling, comfort, and day-to-day running before we decide which model to purchase.”
“The refueling process was always fast and reliable, whatever the vehicle to be refueled. It’s clear that emissions-free bus travel is not some vision of the future, but already a reality. The hydrogen technology used here is absolutely practical,” Geldhauser reported.
