In combination with the proven VOSS Lok 40 tube forming system, the two partners are pooling synergies to create leak-proof connections for corresponding drive systems.

The advanced valves fit perfectly on the VOSS Lok 40 contour, creating a highly leak-proof connection in hydrogen and gas-based propulsion systems – especially for the high-pressure range of up to 700 bar.

VOSS Fluid and HypTec are an ideal match in their efforts to advance hydrogen technology. These competencies come together in the new “Fluid Transport & Storage” business unit.

In pooling their knowledge in the hydrogen space, it could significantly support the industry and enable the group to extend further into the hydrogen market.

Christian Mertens, Managing Director of VOSS Fluid, said, “With HypTec, we have gained a technologically leading, highly innovative supplier of hydrogen high-pressure valve components and testing as a partner at eye level.

“This relationship is important to us, because with the merger the competencies of both sides grow together and complement each other perfectly. This expands our product portfolio and significantly improves our opportunities in this dynamically developing market.

“And last but not least, the chemistry is simply right – also because it’s an excellent human match.

“The greatly increased innovative strength resulting from the collaboration is expected to establish the two companies as bench-mark partners in a market that is set to grow enormously in the future.”

Thomas Höller, Managing Director of HypTec, said, “This merger creates an innovative, globally active company that puts hydrogen technology at the center of its efforts as the basis of future mobility and energy supply to achieve our climate goals as one of its strategic objectives.

“We are combining strengths such as innovation, flexibility, reliability and global market support to further ensure the success of our customers.”
