AUSTRALIA’S FIRST HYDROGEN-POWERED CAR TO RUN ON GAS SUPPLIED BY COREGAS

Wesfarmers Industrial & Safety division company, Coregas helps Hyundai in first step towards green transport network

Australian gases company, Coregas, today announced it is set to supply gas for Hyundai’s new hydrogen-powered concept car, the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell.

Hyundai is currently installing Australia’s first hydrogen car refueling station at its headquarters in Macquarie Park, NSW ready to commence operations early next year.

Coregas will supply high purity compressed hydrogen to the refueling station, which is a special hydrogen storage and dispensing system. Coregas worked closely with Air Products, an international gases company and supplier of the refueling station, to provide a complete refueling solution for Hyundai.

When mixed with air, hydrogen burns ‘clean’ leaving only water, reducing the environmental impact of the vehicle. Longer term plans include production of hydrogen on site using solar energy and electrolysers, meaning the scheme will eventually be entirely green, emitting no harmful by-products and not burning fossil fuels.

Whilst countries in Europe and America already have hydrogen-powered cars and buses, and have begun installing networks of refuelling stations along “hydrogen highways”, Hyundai’s concept car is the first vehicle of its kind to be permanently imported into Australia. It is hoped this will be a first step toward a wider hydrogen network in this country.
