Linde supplies hydrogen for vehicles during World Economic Forum in Davos
Wiesbaden/Munich, 23 January 2007 - The technology group The Linde Group will be showcasing its “traiLH2 ”TM mobile hydrogen filling unit on 24-28 January 2007 in Davos in Switzerland, presenting its hydrogen technologies to the public. While the World Economic Forum (WEF) will be held in Davos, the world market leader for hydrogen plants will supply several Hydrogen 7 BMWs with the climate-neutral fuel.
The “traiLH2 ”TM, which comprises a 1,000-litre hydrogen dewar vessel and independent electricity supply via an on-board fuel cell, is ideally suited as a flexible fuel supply. It allows increasing numbers of hydrogen-powered vehicles to be mobile at a time when the infrastructure of hydrogen filling stations is still under construction.
Sustainable hydrogen production is a strategic objective for both The Linde Group and BMW. Linde, the exclusive supplier of hydrogen to BMW’s CleanEnergy project, will soon be able to meet the current automotive hydrogen demand with the help of sustainable production methods. Already today, climate neutrality of the liquid hydrogen used in Davos is assured by the acquisition of CO2 certificates and is certified by the German TÜV SÜD technical service group.
During the World Economic Forum, interested parties are most welcome to come and find out about the potential of hydrogen as an environmentally friendly fuel at the “traiLH2 ”TM site at Bahnhofstraße Dorf in Davos.
The Linde Group is a world leading industrial gases and engineering company with more than 53,000 employees working in around 70 countries worldwide. Following the acquisition of The BOC Group, the company has gases and engineering sales of approximately 12 billion euro. The strategy of The Linde Group is geared towards earnings-based growth and focuses on the expansion of its international business with forward-looking products and services.
