Cummins electrolyzers power first-of-its-kind H2 refueling station

The Port of Antwerp, Belgium, will be home to the world’s first hydrogen refueling station capable of supplying green hydrogen directly to ships, cars, trucks and industrial customers. The station, built by CMB.TECH, will utilize the Cummins HyLYZER-250, a 1.2-MW PEM electrolyzer, to produce hydrogen on site.

CMB.TECH is the cleantech division of CMB. The company is an active developer and integrator of hydrogen solutions with a focus on engineering, hydrogen production, industrial and marine applications.

Located at a port house between the city and the port, the fueling station is positioned to provide industrial applications and ships in the port with hydrogen and be easily accessible to the general public.

Refueling is fast and simple (dispensing at 700 bar for cars and 350 bar for buses and trucks). In addition to the fueling station, the site will also contain two trailer docks that can be used to transport excess green hydrogen for industrial and refueling activities elsewhere. The refueling station will be open to customers in 2021.
