Backup for fixed stations, fleet demos and as a network extender
The Pioneer Hydrogen Refuelling Station enables the rapid deployment of hydrogen vehicles. It is the steppingstone enabling the economic rapid deployment of the hydrogen ecosystem.
For many small fleets of hydrogen vehicles, the Pioneer will be the ongoing permanent refuelling solution. However, after some time, some fleets will reach a scale where a fixed hydrogen infrastructure is justified. Utilising the Pioneer Hydrogen Refuelling Station allows the CAPEX on a fixed station to be delayed until a high utilisation of vehicles is possible.
At this point the mobile Pioneer HRS can continue to serve the station as a distribution asset with high pressure cascade built in, or it can be simply redeployed to serve another point of use and replaced by conventional hydrogen tube trailer supply or on-site electrolyser
The Pioneer Hydrogen Refuelling Station may also be used as a back-up to the fixed hydrogen stations offering full fills to 350 bar users, such as heavy duty vehicles, and partial fills to 700 bar users, such as cars.
The Pioneer145 could be used to offer half pressure fill to a car like the Toyota Mirai at least 80 times.
The Pioneer Solution
The Pioneer Hydrogen Refuelling Station links the growing number of hydrogen producers and end users right now ahead of a necessary future fixed infrastructure.
- Combined storage, distribution and dispensing solution
- Low cost - capital cost significantly lower than a fixed HRS
- Reliable - mobile nature enables units to back each other up,
resulting in a more reliable hydrogen refuelling network.
- Mobile - rapid deployment, no fixed utilities
- Easily scalable
