Nikkiso Clean Energy joins the Ca. Fuel Cell Partnership as Ambassador

Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group (CE&IG), a subsidiary of Japan’s Nikkiso Company, has joined the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP) as Ambassador. The association joins together auto manufacturers, energy and technology companies to advance the development and adoption of hydrogen vehicles.

The CaFCP initiated in 1999 industry/government collaboration aimed at expanding the market for fuel cell electric vehicles powered by hydrogen. The aim was to advance a greener economy and zero-emissions vehicles.

Moreover, its members collaborate closely on advancing new technologies and creating consensus about investments and money management. Some member companies are Air Liquide, Chevron, Shell Hydrogen, and Sempra Energy; Ford, Honda, General Motors, Hyundai, Nikola, and Toyota. The US Department of Energy and the government of California also participate as members.

Notably, current efforts from the CaFCP include establishing 200 hydrogen fueling stations by 2025 for a sustainable future for zero-emission cars, trucks, and buses. Furthermore, the Group is expanding its global operations, opening a new engineering and service facility in Houston and Korea this year and a new center in Germany in 2022.

Nikkiso advancing cutting-edge hydrogen products

Therefore, Nikkiso joining the CaFCP will strengthen both the company’s and the association’s capacities. Peter Wagner, CEO, Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases Group, said. “We are excited to be part of CaFCP to provide clean energy alternatives and look forward to collaborating with other CaFCP members in the fuel cell hydrogen fuel market.”

In addition, Nikkiso is already advancing with the development of several cutting-edge hydrogen products. These include the first mobile Hydrogen refueler pumps; high capacity / high pressure reciprocating hydrogen pumps, and containerized liquid hydrogen refueling stations. Joining the CaFCP will only strengthen the company’s ability to provide engineering, procurement, and full turnkey projects.

Finally, the company is also involved in the bunkering installation design of a new complete Liquid Hydrogen (LH2) Bunkering installation with Unitrove. CE&IG will provide to the facility custom equipment from two of its Functional Units; a sump from its Heat Exchangers unit (Cryoquip) and Cryogenic Pumps unit (ACD).
