 Project objective

The purpose of the HyFast project is to finalize development and conduct a test of a full-scale prototype for a new H2Station® product from H2 Logic. H2Station® is a Hydrogen Refueling Station that already today is providing fast 70MPa hydrogen fueling for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) from major car manufacturers.

The new H2Station® technology has prior to the HyFast project reached a TRL5 level through extensive R&D for more than €3 million. This effort represents a “Phase 1” which has been conducted through several projects supported by national R&D programs and the European FCH-JU program. The HyFast project acts as the “Phase 2” where the H2Station® technology is to reach a TRL8 level enabling market introduction.

The H2Station® technology is developed in collaboration with a EU supplier base of 73 companies from 10 countries. With HyFast the present EU supplier share of 62% of the cost basis of a H2Station® is to be increased to 80%. Additionally several key market stakeholders such as Toyota, BMW, Hyundai, Siemens and Shell will provide market input and serve as later market entry platforms.

With the HyFast project capacity and performance is to be increased and cost reduced to a level that enables commencing of market introduction in Europe during 2017 and for USA and Japan during 2018-2019.

HyFast is in particular to increase fueling capacity to a level that corresponds to what is achieved on an average gasoline dispenser. This will be paramount for achieving a profitable roll-out and operation of networks of hydrogen fueling stations. Further footprint of the technology is to be reduced to enable integration at conventional gasoline stations.

HyFast is to achieve the EU FCH-JU program 2020 CAPEX target of €0.8 million for at turn-key hydrogen fueling station already by 2017. This will enable a supported station roll-out where public support levels required for a payback is within the funding levels of existing programs in EU, USA & Japan.
