Boost for Sunderland hydrogen project as Sheffield engineers take up contract
A Yorkshire engineering group has today announced that it has secured a Sunderland hydrogen contract as it aims to expand global refuelling infrastructure.
Chesterfield Special Cylinders (CSC), owned by specialist engineering group Pressure Technologies, has agreed upon a contract with Haskel Hydrogen Group to supply steel hydrogen storage vessels.
The vessels will be used in three new Sunderland Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS), and are expect to last for more than 100 years.
The contract will be delivered over the course of this summer, and CSC and Haskel have said that they are committed to investment and expansion in global refuelling infrastructure for hydrogen-based mobility.
Darran Heath, general manager at Haskel Global Hydrogen Systems Group, commented: “We recognise the strong support Chesterfield Special Cylinders has given us over the past two years and are delighted to confirm this additional order that further cements our relationship.
“Hydrogen Refuelling Stations are central to our success and capable suppliers like CSC, with a shared vision on how to unlock the hydrogen opportunities, are the key to reliable and innovative supply now and in future. We look forward to achieving more success together.”
Jake Martin, head of business development at CSC, said: “Having worked with Haskel from the start of their Hydrogen journey, it is a continuing pleasure to be supplying them now and in the future with high pressure vessels for their refuelling stations globally.
“I am looking forward to continuing the partnership in the near future, supplying products that innovate and bolster their robust solution to market.”
