  • Contribution to achieve the European “Green Deal«  by making hydrogen a widespread energy carrier by 2030.
  • Reducing the cost and environmental footprint of transporting compressed hydrogen.
  • Creating Type V tubes to meet the objectives of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership by maximising the quantity of H2 transported.
  • Optimisation and lightening of the truck structure based on a 40-foot container (MEGC*) carrying these new tubes.
  • Creation of an innovative design and an optimised GH2 distribution system that complies with safety and transport standards.
  • Reducing the number of transport rotations between the production site and the delivery site.
  • The MEGC’s objective is a final capacity of 1452kg H2 / 70Mpa.
  • Production of a demonstrator of three type V tubes to validate the system.
