Global Hydrogen Review,

Luxfer Gas Cylinders, a division of Luxfer Holdings PLC, has introduced the G-Stor® Hydrosphere, a collection of Multiple Element Gas Containers (MEGCs) set to revolutionise how businesses can harness the power of hydrogen.

Developed to support the safe and sustainable transportation of hydrogen via virtual gas pipelines, the high-capacity G-Stor® Hydrosphere range will help extend access to the clean gas as the hydrogen economy continues to gather pace.

Offering maximum capacity and energy delivery, the G-Stor Hydrosphere range draws on Luxfer's trusted Type 4 (G-Stor Go H2) cylinder technology. Available in 20 ft and 40 ft units, the MEGCs overcome infrastructure barriers currently facing the hydrogen supply chain by effectively allowing over 1 t of hydrogen to be stored and transported. By maximising payload, it provides the best price per kg of hydrogen.

Nick Herbert, Sales and Marketing Director of Luxfer Gas Cylinders Europe, explains the significance of the innovation: “We believe this product range is revolutionary for the transportation of hydrogen. By using our G-Stor Go Type 4 cylinders, which have a larger diameter, less cylinders are required to store the gas compared to other models on the market. That means our customers benefit from more efficient use of carbon fibre and reduced road weight, improving gas transportation efficiency. We strongly believe that this virtual pipeline solution will truly make a difference to enabling the adoption of cleaner fuel.”

With standardised filling and discharge couplings, exemplary safety features (including the suitability for use in the UK, Europe and other regions), an unlimited service life with periodic inspection, the design completed in conjunction with ISO 668, a cylinder approval to EN 17339, and an approval to ADR 6.8, the G-Stor Hydrosphere range ensures safe usage.
