Haskel powers on with ‘ground-breaking’ Australian hydrogen project

A pump and compressor firm has strengthened its international reach with a “ground-breaking” Australian launch.

Haskel has founded the first commercial hydrogen-powered refuelling station in New South Wales.

Sunderland-based Haskel says the site will fill hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicles including trucks, buses and refuse wagons.

It has partnered with Coregas on the scheme, which will compress hydrogen before its delivery to the station for use.

Stewart Anderson, Haskel’s hydrogen business development and technical sales manager (APAC), said: “We are pleased to collaborate on this ground-breaking project, bringing our extensive high pressure gas experience and expertise in the hydrogen mobility sector.”

Alan Watkins, Coregas Australia executive general manager, added: “The Haskel system features world-leading compression, storage and dispensing equipment.

“Transitioning our fleet to fuel-cell electric vehicles is a cornerstone of the company’s decarbonisation roadmap.”
