A Hydrogen Refuelling Network
Hiringa is building green hydrogen production and refuelling networks. The stations provide coverage for the key heavy freight routes along their networks.
It’s essentially a service station for hydrogen powered vehicles.
The hydrogen is made onsite by using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen through a process called electrolysis.
The white containers hold the equipment necessary to create, compress and store hydrogen. On the Waitomo forecourt you will also see the hydrogen dispensing unit. This works just like a normal diesel dispenser.
At the moment, stations can only be used by approved heavy transport operators. In the future, the station will be available to everyone, including people with hydrogen powered passenger vehicles.
The network also provides an affordable and reliable source of hydrogen for multiple applications including:
Marine and shipping
Construction and off-road equipment
Stationary heat and power
Initial locations in New Zealand have been prioritised to provide:
Aggregation of suitable fleets in industrial complexes, commercial & logistics hubs
Ability to service ports and airports
The network includes:
Distributed production at each station
Delivery of hydrogen from centralised generation
