San Fran gets its first public hydrogen fueling station (video)

  • 16-Apr-2012 09:37 EDT

With technology from Linde North America, the station can dispense hydrogen at up to 5 kg/min (11 lb/min)—comparable to the rate at which diesel buses are refueled. The facility also features hydrogen production capability.

In a boost to the future of fuel-cell technology, Linde North America has announced operations start-up of the first public hydrogen fueling station in the San Francisco Bay area. It offers fueling at 350 and 700 bar, the latter providing a refill time for a fuel-cell bus comparable to that of a diesel bus. Located in Emeryville, the station is one of two being supplied by Linde to AC Transit, which is a coalition of regional transport partners serving 7 million people in the Bay Area. The other station, in Oakland, is expected to begin operations in 2013. The Emeryville station was unveiled in a dedication ceremony April 10. It serves 12 fuel-cell buses operated by AC Transit, as well as privately owned fuel-cell passenger vehicles. (See video of the station here.)
