An investment of more than £1 million in Luxfer Gas Cylinders’ European base in Nottingham, UK has been announced, which will establish a new production facility to support ‘virtual’ gas pipelines that can distribute hydrogen across the UK and Europe.

Luxfer Gas Cylinders, a division of Luxfer Holdings PLC, is a manufacturer of high-pressure aluminium and composite cylinders. Its Nottingham manufacturing base produces up to 1 million cylinders each year - and is home to alternative fuel specialists who have embedded hydrogen-powered systems into buses, trucks, trains, boats, tractors and even drones.

This new purpose-built facility will produce Multiple Element Gas Containers (MEGCs), with the very first units available from summer 2024.

Available in 20-foot, 40-foot and 45-foot solutions, the G-Stor™ Hydrosphere range can store between 0.5 and 1.4 t of clean gas and transport it to where it’s needed, opening up access to hydrogen for companies targeting greener operations.

Mark Lawday, Vice President and General Manager of Luxfer Europe, explains: “This investment is the natural next step in continuing to build our European hydrogen capability and support the development of the hydrogen economy, which is going to be essential in enabling all of us to reach our decarbonisation goals in Europe in 2030 and beyond.”
