Hydrogen Council reporting that more than 130 fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) models are expected to be assembled during 2023

ANGI Energy Systems has dispatched state-of-the-art hydrogen dispensers from its headquarters in Janesville, Wisconsin. Chart Industries, Inc., (NYSE: GTLS) a global leader in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of process technologies and equipment for gas and liquid molecule handling for the Nexus of Clean™ — clean power, clean water, clean food, and clean industrials, including hydrogen energy, will fit the dispensers within its first-of-a kind transportable fuel stations, which convert stored liquid hydrogen into high pressure gas, to offer a complete, deployable fuel solution delivering on existing customer orders.

Joel van Rensburg, President of Alternative Fuels at ANGI, said, “It’s exciting to partner with Chart Industries on such an innovative and progressive project, designed to help overcome the industry’s early infrastructure challenges and, vitally, help to stimulate heavy-duty hydrogen fuel cell electric      vehicle adoption. Our collaboration with Chart, a world leader in hydrogen equipment, underscores the value in forging strategic partnerships at all levels and across the full hydrogen value chain.”

Jill Evanko, CEO and President of Chart Industries, said, “Drawing off of our decades of experience in hydrogen, we are building a first-of-a-kind, fully integrated transportable and modular hydrogen fuel station for heavy-duty vehicles, providing a readily deployable fueling solution for customers with lower capital requirements. This transportable fuel station lowers the barrier to entry and is an ideal solution for small-to-medium sized fleets or for any immediate, interim, or permanent fueling needs. By partnering with companies like ANGI, who have decades of experience in compressed gas, we can deploy vital solutions sooner and meet the needs of fleets today.”

According to most industry experts, hydrogen is better suited for heavy-duty commercial vehicles than battery electric power, due to the rapid refuelling time, their weight, payloads, and demanding duty cycles. Hydrogen fuel cell trucks and buses are currently being developed by most of the leading global truck manufacturers, with the Hydrogen Council reporting that more than 130 fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) models are expected to be assembled during 2023, of which the majority consists of commercial vehicles*.

ANGI Energy Systems is part of the Vontier group of companies and brings 40 years of experience in the design, manufacture and maintenance of full-site gaseous refueling solutions for clients worldwide. Supported by more than 150 years’ experience in fuel dispenser design and quality engineering through sister company Gilbarco Veeder-Root, ANGI’s hydrogen dispenser forms part of its complete Hydrogen Refueling Station (HRS) solution, encompassing hardware, software and services for safe, reliable and sustainable refueling of fuel cell electric (FCEV) vehicles.
