H2 for Fuel, H2 for Electricity
February 6, 2018
HCATT manages two hydrogen (H2) fueling stations which generate, store and dispense H2 on site. The stations provide fuel for the alternative fuel vehicle demonstrations and indicates opportunities for hydrogen in electric utility applications. HCATT’s longest standing hydrogen fueling station is located on Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam. The station can store up to 370 kg of compressed hydrogen at pressures up to 10,000 pounds per square inch (psi). When connected to the adjacent 146kW solar array, the hydrogen station can generate up to 12 kg of hydrogen a day, and when power is provided by the utility, the station can produce up to 65kg of hydrogen per day. HCATT has Oahu’s first hydrogen production and dispensing station that is no located on a military installation. The unit is a Millennium Reign hydrogen production and fueling station that can produce up to 2kg/day of hydrogen and stores up to 8kg of hydrogen at 5,000 psi. Both stations provide hydrogen fuel for the vehicle demonstration projects that take place at the National Demonstration Center.
