The industry heavyweights will work together in a project dubbed FlatHyStor which defines its objective as creating a functional design and testing of an innovative hydrogen tank system.
If the project proves to be a success it could be a huge boost to the hydrogen mobility market and could help create more efficient hydrogen passenger vehicles to decarbonise road transportation.
The project has additionally draw attention from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) with the organisation providing €6m in funding to support the development.
According to the companies, the consortium will be led by BMW who will coordinate different activities and provide the technical specifications for the storage system integration and application.
With this, Hexagon Purus will utilise its high-pressure hydrogen cylinders as well as corresponding vehicle integration structure with Bosch to develop advanced tank valves and high-pressure regulator technology.
Michael Kleschinski, Executive Vice-President LDC at Hexagon Purus, said, “We are excited to participate in this project with BMW, Bosch and TesTneT. This cooperation confirms our leading position as a Type 4 high-pressure cylinder manufacturer and as a Tier 1 supplier of complete system solutions to OEM customers.”
