Chart and ZEV Stations, Co., have executed a Memorandum of Understanding enabling the companies to collaborate on novel deployment for U.S.-based, multimodal H2 stations with Chart equipment. Working together, the companies’ goal is development of fast-fuel multiple modes for heavy-duty transportation at the same station, uniting different standards of gaseous and liquid H2 vehicle fueling using high flow and efficiency liquid pumping.
ZEV Station is an environmentally focused B-Corporation committed to developing zero-carbon based fueling–EV charging and H2–serving both types of zero emission vehicles at the same station. Under this agreement, Chart will supply liquid H2 fuel station equipment and H2 liquefaction, to support ZEV Station’s multimodal H2 stations. This type of station will service H2 vehicles up to Class 8 heavy-duty trucks using Chart’s liquid-based equipment enabling at least 8 kg per minute fills.
“Chart’s cutting-edge H2 equipment is a great complement to ZEV Station’s novel system integration. Chart’s liquid technology enables fast fueling like diesel through a range of gaseous and liquid protocols,” said Jesse Schneider, ZEV Station’s CEO/CTO. “We believe multimodal stations are needed to help converge the standards of heavy-duty H2 fueling. This will drive a more widespread fuel cell truck deployment and accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels.”
