Green hydrogen is an essential component of the hydrogen economy. In a recent announcement by HYPORT, Europe's now has its first green hydrogen production, storage and distribution station at an airport. Producing up to 400kg of green hydrogen a day, this fuel station can supply two charging stations - one on the secure side of the airport, allowing airport shuttles, aircraft tractors, and the ground power units supplying electricity to aircraft to be refueled, and another on the public side, to refuel up to 20 buses or 200 light vehicles, particularly taxis.
Rather than the typical wind turbines, this system's 1MW electrolyser will be powered by electricity from an agrivoltaic farm in Fanjeaux (80km from Toulouse) and SHEM hydroelectric dams in the Pyrenees, operated by ENGIE.
It is great to see practical applications of hydrogen being adopted in an ever growing number of locations and situations.
