Hydrogen infrastructure

The expansion of the hydrogen infrastructure for generation, transport, application and storage is progressing ever faster. No matter which part of the H2 value chain you are in, WEKA's product range can provide you with a solution that is best suited for your application. We supply reliable components for the cold and hot range and various pressure levels up to 1000 bar. Our concept offers you a high degree of flexibility in producing a valve tailored to the requirements of your hydrogen application.

Typical applications:

  •     GH2 liquefaction
  •     LH2 storage and offtake
  •     LH2 refueling systems
  •     LH2 transport by trailer or ship (Maritime)
  •     GH2 and LH2 refueling station concepts
  •     Space fuel supply
  •     Power-to-gas
  •     Fuel cell and gas fuel systems for LH2 for vehicles and ships (Maritime)

Energy storage is one of the central issues of the energy transition due to the natural fluctuations of renewable energies. Solutions for long-term storage are particularly in demand - this is where hydrogen comes into play as a storage medium. Although it can be stored in a variety of ways, hydrogen is usually stored in gaseous form in high-pressure containers that are installed on site at the manufacturer's and user's premises as well as mounted on road and rail vehicles. Thus, hydrogen reaches the various users and H2 refueling stations mainly in a gaseous state.

In order to refuel more efficiently in the future, filling stations are needed that can refuel significantly more vehicles. Filling station concepts for liquid hydrogen storage are best suited for this. These have the advantage that liquid hydrogen (LH2) requires only one seventh of the volume of hydrogen gas (GH2), thus enabling significant space savings.
