Nowadays, existing hydrogen transportation solutions use tubes with a working pressure between 200 and 300 bar. This is not efficient in terms of quantities or cost to address large refueling stations knowing the upcoming ramp-up of fuel cell-based vehicles.
ROAD TRHYP’s overall ambition is to develop Europe’s value chain of Type V technologies. More specifically, the project intends to address all manufacturers across Europe who could benefit from the project’s innovative process and materials. Beyond the targeted commercial Type V trailers applications, the knowledge developed on composite materials could benefit main actors in the mobility sectors or the hydrogen storage for inter-seasonal energy storage. As a consequence, the project will help achieve the European Green Deal making hydrogen a widespread energy carrier, by 2030.
