Haskel to Develop Clean Energy Technology as Part of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking

13th December 2017

European partnership supports R&D of technologies that have the potential to advance the hydrogen market and impact economic growth.

Haskel International, an Accudyne Industries brand and a leader in high-pressure solutions, is pleased to announce its participation in the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking.

FCH JU is a unique public-private partnership that supports research and development of fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies in Europe. Its members are the European Commission, industry group Hydrogen Europe and research group Hydrogen Europe Research (formerly N.ERGHY). The partnership aims to accelerate time-to-market of technologies that have the potential to create a carbon-lean energy system and contribute to economic growth.

The H2Ref project, Hydrogen Refuelling Research and Development, is co-financed by European funds from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking under grant agreement number 671463. In addition to Haskel, the consortium members working on the H2Ref project include:
Centre Technique des Industries Mechaniques (CETIM) (Program Coordinator)
The CCS Global Group Limited
Université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC)

Haskel is proud to be part of Europe's forward-thinking approach to the hydrogen industry. The team has been exploring value chains for both hydrogen refuelling and power-to-hydrogen applications.

Stewart Anderson, Haskel Europe’s Chief Hydrogen Engineer, said, “Hydrogen is a fast-growing market, and Europe’s investment in hydrogen R&D will benefit not only European manufacturers, but the world at large.” Haskel’s engineers are focused on designing application-specific equipment to fit the needs of the hydrogen market. They recently started taking orders for the H-Drive, their new generation hydraulic-driven gas booster. The H-Drive is designed to safely perform in a wide range of demanding high-rate, high-pressure gas compression and transfer applications.
