Linde to Refuel World's First Hybrid Hydrogen Race Car
Linde has developed a mobile hydrogen refuelling unit, ideally suited for locations without a stationary hydrogen infrastructure. The 14 metre-long truck and trailer unit trailH2-gas™ is equipped with two separate high-pressure couplings for gaseous hydrogen (CGH2) and stores the gas at 300 and 450 bar in cylinder packs. The trailH2-gasTM can further compress the hydrogen on-board to reach pressures of up to 700 bar, depending on requirements. For this project, however, a pressure of 350 bar is needed.
For racing purposes, the usual automated refuelling procedure, which takes a few minutes, will be replaced by a manual, supervised refill, reducing the necessary stopover to less than a minute.
