Cryogenic Storage

A great challenge for future generations of hydrogen-powered vehicles is the development of light weight storage systems with conformable tank shapes that can easily be adapted to different vehicle structures. The great advantage of cryogenic storage is that it requires quite a low working pressure compared to high pressure storage systems.

Cryogenic StorageAnother great potential is a considerable reduction of weight by using new composite materials with which a specific energy storage mass similar to a conventional fuel tank can be achieved. In that context, the project aims to develop a light weight liquid hydrogen tank with an energy density greater than 8 kWh/kg.
Cryogenic light weight tanks as they will be developed in this project could in the future also be used as hydrogen storage tanks in aircraft and space applications.
