Air Products to aid in South Korean and Greek navy fuel cell subs.
Through a partnership with submarine manufacturer HDW, the equipment will be used to fuel both navies' fuel cell submarines, which generate energy without leaving a heat or noise signature along their routes, while also remaining submerged for longer periods.
A cryogenic hydrogen compressor, part of the hydrogen-fuelling equipment supplied to the navies by HDW, was originally developed by Air Products for industrial users in the compression of liquid hydrogen and cryogenic gas. More recently it has been used for fuel cell applications in hydrogen fuelling stations globally.
The CHC and evaporation technology will be supplied to the Greek Navy together with a dispenser, and the submarines will be fuelled from a gaseous or liquid hydrogen source. The dispenser will safely load the hydrogen and fill the vessel to the required level.
