MISSISSAUGA, Ont.: Hydrogenics Corp. has sold a hydrogen-generating system to a European agency that coordinates the implementation of hydrogen infrastructure within Belgium.

WaterstofNet, established by the governments of Flanders and southern Netherlands as part of the European Interreg Program, has procured a HySTAT-30 electrolyzer unit, compressor, storage equipment, and accessories for a hydrogen station capable of supporting about 60 kilograms of the gas daily. The electrolyzer is Hydrogenics’ fifth generation model, which the company describes as more compact, efficient and easier to use.

Hydrogenics
, a Mississauga, Ont.-based developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and fuel cell products based in, said the station will provide hydrogen for forklifts, buses and other vehicles.

“We have now provided equipment to more than 35 facilities around the world and, given the vision for countries such as Germany and the Netherlands, believe hundreds more will be installed in the years to come,” said Daryl Wilson, Hydrogenics’ president and CEO.

No financial details of the Belgium deal were provided.
