Ballard Power Systems and Chart Industries form transportation partnership

Long range, quick refuelling and low-cost hydrogen-powered buses, trucks, rail and marine vessels are to be developed by industry veterans Ballard Power Systems and Chart Industries as part of a new partnership. Confirming details of the agreement, Chart Industries said it will provide its liquid hydrogen expertise, from liquefaction plants to storage, fuelling and on-board tanks. The cryogenic equipment specialist will also offer an existing liquid hydrogen onboard vehicle tank prototype design. Both companies will also offer facilities to help develop the heavy-duty vehicles. Chart will offer its liquid hydrogen test lab in Minnesota, US, and Ballard will offer its fuel cell testing facilities in both British Columbia and Denmark. Learn more about the new partnership here.
