Commercial hydrogen refueling station in Tokyo
Enapter is supporting one of Asia’s largest energy suppliers, Tokyo Gas Asia Pte. Ltd., in implementing Japan’s hydrogen strategy transition: The Japanese integration partner Inabata & Co.,Ltd set up 30 EL 2.1 AEM Electrolysers and 15 DRY 2.1 dryers in Tokyo Gas’ “Senju” hydrogen refueling station in Tokyo. Beyond the current project, it’s also planned to explore the potential use of renewable hydrogen together with Tokyo Gas and to implement further hydrogen projects in Japan.
The Senju station is the first commercial hydrogen refueling station using AEM electrolysis in Asia. Here, the Enapter electrolysers used to produce green hydrogen on-site are 8-bar pressure versions that comply with Japanese thresholds set by the High Gas Pressure Safety Act. Our dryers bump the hydrogen produced up to the purity level needed by fuel cells.
With around 16,000 employees (consolidated) and an annual turnover in the tens-billion dollar range, Tokyo Gas is one of the largest gas companies in Asia. Japan is pursuing ambitious goals on its way to decarbonising the economy and society. Among other things, 1,000 hydrogen refueling stations for fuel cell vehicles are to be installed throughout the country by 2030. From 2035, no more new vehicles with pure combustion engines will be registered nationwide.
