Hydrogen IC FuelBox

Efficient. Compact. Transportable.

  • Easy to transport for rapid deployment at the point of use
  • Quick installation and commissioning as no high-pressure piping is needed
  • Rapid refueling windows and large capacity for convincing proof of concept

All-in-one transportable H2 refueling station

Growing adoption of hydrogen (H2) as a zero-emissions source of fuels driving the need for a broader, more flexible refueling infrastructure. Particularly as automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and fleet managers contemplate extending fuel-cell drivetrains to new modes of transport, they would welcome a mobile, compact refueling concept that could be rapidly deployed to establish proof of concept.

Linde developed the IC FuelBox to meet this need. It is an all-in-one transportable hydrogen refueling station that integrates Linde’s proprietary IC 90/30 or IC 50/30 Ionic Compressors with an intermediate H2 storage tank and dispenser. With a small footprint of just 12 m², this ready-to-run unit can be deployed at just about any location – in record time with almost no installation effort.

Suited to multiple use cases

This unique station is suited to a wide variety of use cases. It gives fleet managers, for instance, a convenient, instantly available way to test new fleet concepts as it has the capacity to refuel up to 65 passenger vehicles or 10 heavy duty vehicles.

It also gives OEMs a solution to test fuel-cell buses, trains and all sorts of trucks with the capacity to serve up to ten heavy vehicles. In addition, it is the perfect fit for event managers of trade fair or exhibition grounds, providing a pop-up format to showcase the benefits of H2 fueling over a limited period of time.
