We design and manufacture our tank systems exactly the way our customers want us to. We’d like to provide you with an overview of some of our projects to date.

Alstom Coradia iLint

Alstom’s Coradia iLint is the world’s first passenger train powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. As a systems supplier, we provide this project with pre-assembled components, which we develop and manufacture in-house precisely for the specific space requirements. Two fuel tank compositions (FTCs), each consisting of four modules plus a control system, are installed in each railcar. With a full tank, the Coradia iLint has a range of around 1,000 kilometers.

Hylix B

The Hylix-B field testing project involves the development of a fully electric truck prototype with a total weight of 26 metric tons and powered by a fuel-cell drive. The aim of the project is to research the practicality, economic viability, and social acceptance of using fuel-cell technology in trucks. It is funded by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and Energy Sector Baden-Württemberg. The truck’s hydrogen tank system comprises five 350 liter cylinders, providing capacity for about 40 kilograms of hydrogen at a pressure stage of 350 bar.
