APL milestone – H2 trailer park

APL is preparing for the mobility of the future

Milestone for the APL: Since June, the newly built trailer station at the Landau location and a first hydrogen trailer from Westfalen AG have ensured the hydrogen supply and thus the testing of fuel cell drives. This enables uninterrupted operations and strong scalability – depending on customer requirements.

It was also a special day for the project team. The team was there live when the trailer was connected to the APL hydrogen network. Alexander Neber, project manager for hydrogen supply at APL: “I am proud of how we as a team here at the Landau location successfully set up this infrastructure measure in such a short time. Many colleagues from APL and Westfalen AG worked together and achieved this milestone through their commitment and specialist expertise. We are pleased about a scalable and reliable supply that lays the foundation for our hydrogen activities so that we can contribute to the development of future drives together with our customers.”

It is planned that two trailers will supply the test benches with hydrogen in the future – but in principle there is space for up to four trailers at the trailer station. Around 3.5 million m³ of hydrogen will flow to the test benches annually through the APL hydrogen network. There, the fuel cell drives are subjected to a long-term test as part of their development and put through their paces, or rather consumption values ​​and system performance.

“We are very pleased that we can support APL with hydrogen and thus further promote the development of environmentally friendly technologies in the field of mobility. What’s also particularly nice is that in this collaboration, two medium-sized companies meet on an equal footing and show how sustainable progress can be shaped together,” explains Björn Bredlo, customer advisor for specialty gases at Westfalen.

With the hydrogen trailer, APL is not only setting the course for the decarbonization of the mobility sector and an energy source of the future, but can also continue to optimally serve its customers and respond to their wishes.
