Mobile hydrogen storage and distribution solution for local mobility use, using a container (Mhy500®) and a dispenser. Particularly suitable for refuelling needs, public works sites, boats and ships, and event organisation.

This container makes it possible to supply hydrogen at the point of use, regardless of the amount of hydrogen required, and is particularly well suited to priming, construction sites, or event organisation. It’s a scalable solution, known as multi-cascade, because it consists of multiple tanks connected and controlled in line with each other, allowing a cascade of hydrogen to be poured from a container into the tanks of the vehicles.

The system meets ADR (European agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road) criteria and can be used to transport hydrogen in bulk: 2 x 20-foot containers on a flatbed truck can carry 860 kg at a time (tube trailer: 250 to 300 kg maximum).
