Valued at approximately €2.2m ($2.25m), the order for Hexagon’s systems include its type 4 hydrogen cylinders which are set to be used to both transport hydrogen and as mobile storage for Hypion’s planned network of green hydrogen refuelling stations in Germany.

It comes after Hypion said it had received a €4.9m ($5m) grant from the German Government for the procurement of a commercial vehicle hydrogen refuelling station with integrated hydrogen production in Neumünster, Germany.

Commenting on the order, Dr. Stefan Rehm, Development Director at Hypion, said, “Partnering with the best and most experienced suppliers on the market is crucial to successfully implement our business strategy in an economical and competitive way. We are glad to get Hexagon Purus as part of the team to develop a network of green hydrogen refuelling stations in Germany”.

Matthias Kötter, Head of Sales for Wystrach, Hexagon Purus, added, “Our high-pressure distribution system can also be used as a mobile storage for hydrogen refuelling stations, lowering both total investments and operating costs through reducing amongst other on-site fixed storage capacity and energy consumption.

“Allowing for hybrid use of our distribution systems, will enable Hypion to efficiently transport and refuel hydrogen with the same distribution system.”
