Howden has supplied three hydrogen compressors for use in the world’s largest hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) for Hypower: the Beijing Daxing HRS in China. 

Howden’s hydrogen diaphragm compressor packages were supplied at the refuelling station and Howden’s strong brand reputation, high product quality, reliability and technological strength in the hydrogen market were key to the successful contract.
