FIRST UNDERGROUND HYDROGEN FILLING STATION
Hystream is proud to announce that it will build and operate its first hydrogen filling station at a recently opened filling station at the Laan der Verenigde Naties in Dordrecht in partnership with Koninklijke van Twist.
The filling station is situated at a strategic location, near the A16 motorway in Dordrecht.
This hydrogen filling station will be equipped for hydrogen refueling at 350 and 700 bar, enabling cars, trucks and buses to refuel. Next to hydrogen, traditional fuels are also available.
The hydrogen refueling station will be realized at an already existing petrol station which was formally opened in the summer of 2020 by BP and Koninklijke van Twist. At the time of opening, one of the objectives was to examine whether a hydrogen refueling facility could be realized in the near future.
Hystream has taken on this role and is proud and excited to build and operate this fueling facility.
SOLAR-POWERED HYDROGEN IN SOMEREN
Currently, the region of Someren, The Netherlands is facing many challenges with regards to the realization of renewable energy projects due to grid congestion problems. The same goes for many other regions in The Netherlands and other parts of the world.
Due to these grid congestion problems, solar and windfarms cannot supply electricity back to the grid. As such, these renewable energy projects cannot be realized or scaled. Our green hydrogen solution will change this.
We have joined hands with a renewable energy project developer to produce solar-powered green hydrogen at two locations in Someren.
This produced green hydrogen will be stored when the electricity grid is congested and it will be turned back into electricity when the electricity demand is high and renewable energy cannot meet this demand
Production site Oude Tonge
We are building a hydrogen production site in Oude Tonge. The station will consist of a 2 MW electrolyzer that will produce hydrogen through the process of water electrolysis.
The produced hydrogen will be stored in a buffer system and compressed to 700 bar for cars and 350 bar for trucks using a compressor system. The hydrogen will then be dispensed to vehicles at the refueling station through a fuel dispenser. The station will have the capacity to fuel multiple vehicles simultaneously.
In addition to the vehicle filling stations, the project also includes three trailer filling locations. These locations will facilitate the transportation of hydrogen to other refueling stations, making it easier to establish a network of hydrogen refueling stations.
How to implement hydrogen as fuel
This project contains the research about the feasibility and potential for implementing hydrogen fuel for inland waterway vessels for a port company. The white paper delves into the technical, logistical, and regulatory aspects of implementing hydrogen fuel, covering topics such as bunkering logistics, permits and licenses, safety considerations, and the overall financial feasibility of the project.
Our team of experts conducted thorough research and analysis, utilizing the latest industry trends and data to assess the viability of hydrogen fuel for the company's inland waterway vessels. The white paper presents a comprehensive overview of the benefits and challenges associated with implementing hydrogen fuel, providing detailed recommendations and a roadmap for the company's transition to clean and sustainable energy.
The use of hydrogen fuel for inland waterway vessels offers several benefits, including reduced emissions of harmful pollutants, lower operating costs, and increased efficiency. However, the implementation of hydrogen fuel also requires careful planning and consideration of various technical, logistical, and regulatory factors.
Our white paper presents a clear and concise summary of the key considerations for implementing hydrogen fuel, including the development of a comprehensive bunkering infrastructure, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, and providing adequate safety measures for handling hydrogen.
Overall, the completion of the white paper marks a significant milestone in the transition towards cleaner and more sustainable energy solutions for the shipping industry. We are proud to have contributed our expertise and knowledge to support the port company in their efforts to implement hydrogen fuel for their inland waterway vessels.
Green construction power
The project involved the delivery of green construction power to a construction site through the use of hydrogen-based power generation.
Hystream provided the necessary equipment and expertise to generate power using hydrogen fuel cells, which produced zero carbon emissions during operation. The fuel cells utilized hydrogen gas stored in tanks, which was produced through the process of water electrolysis using renewable energy sources.
The green construction power was used to operate various construction equipment and power tools, reducing the carbon footprint of the construction site.
Training for mechanics and drivers in hydrogen-powered vehicles.
Aeres Tech, Hystream en Innovam bundelen hun krachten om een innovatieve opleiding te ontwikkelen voor onderhoudsmonteurs en chauffeurs van waterstofvoertuigen. Deze samenwerking maakt deel uit van het LIFE NEW HYTS-project (https://lifenewhyts.eu/
), dat zich richt op het bevorderen van duurzame mobiliteit in Europa door middel van groene waterstofoplossingen.
De nieuwe opleiding omvat zowel praktische als theoretische aspecten en is ontworpen om de veiligheid en efficiëntie van het onderhouden en besturen van waterstofvoertuigen te waarborgen. De samenwerking stelt ons in staat om een hoogwaardige opleiding aan te bieden die inspeelt op de groeiende vraag naar gekwalificeerde professionals in deze sector.

H2STROOM AGAINST NET CONGESTION
There is a capacity problem on the electricity grid in parts of North Brabant and Limburg. As a result, it is not possible for all new renewable energy projects to feed power back into the grid. According to the main grid operator, it is not possible to expand the electricity grid as fast as the supply of, in particular, solar parks increases. This problem is also known as grid congestion. In the vision of the project partners Van Kessel, Vissers Energy Group and Hystream, hydrogen can prevent the electricity grid from becoming congested and allow the share of sustainably generated electricity to continue to grow, while also meeting the need for controllable, emission-free energy that can be used at any time of day and any place. In this way, locally generated green electricity can be maximally utilized to relieve infrastructure bottlenecks.
