Hexagon Composites has been selected by Resato International BV to supply high-pressure hydrogen tanks assembly for the first Dutch full-sized hydrogen refuelling station in The Hague, Netherlands. Resato, a manufacturer in high pressure technologies, is working with Shell Kerkhof & Zn to set up the new refuelling station serving three users per 15 minutes.

The Resato Hydrogen Refuelling Station will be one of the largest refuelling stations in the Netherlands and will highlight the advantages of compressed hydrogen for the mobility sector.

“This is the first tank assembly storage installation we deliver to hydrogen refuelling stations,” says Trond Seth, Vice President Hydrogen Business Unit. “We’re really pleased to have been chosen by Resato to work on the full-sized hydrogen refuelling station. We are seeing an increased interest for our ground storage solutions and with this delivery we are demonstrating that Hexagon is moving from being a product supplier to a systems supplier.”

“The deployment of the large hydrogen refuelling station in The Hague is a big step taken towards a greener future,” says Francois Hemmerlin, Business Development Manager Hydrogen at Resato. “We are committed to developing a hydrogen economy towards an emission-free country. A vital advantage of the large hydrogen refuelling station is that the filling time as well as the range is equal to petrol or diesel.”

The Resato Hydrogen Refuelling Station will be opened by the summer 2019.
