The mobile fuelling facility is an interim measure and will serve as a communication test bed. The IR interface will be simultaneously field-tested here.
The location of the fuelling facility is at the Linde company site on Gradestrasse, Berlin. Fuel cell car users will be briefed on fuelling procedures and permitted to individually refuel at specifi ed opening times. The fuelling facility incorporates an H2 tank that is refi lled after approximately 16 cars have refuelled. Refuelling takes place at the BVG site on the Heerstrasse where a H2 supply is located.
The project serves the preindustrial development of H2 as a fuel source. It thereby promotes sustainability in two respects:
- Through the development of an ecologically sustainable (principally CO2-neutral) fuel source
- Due to economic sustainability arising from in-house development that is focused on this issue
