Are hydrogen refuelling stations safe?
Yes, like other fuel systems, hydrogen refuelling stations must be designed and constructed in accordance with all relevant safety standards.
Hydrogen monitoring systems ensure that the system is functioning as expected, otherwise, the system is completely shut down.
There are over 200 hydrogen refuelling stations already installed across Europe which are run and maintained according to the relevant codes and standards. Compressed hydrogen has been used in the industry for more than 50 years and its safety is considered higher than that of LNG or even oxygen. Liquid hydrogen is in use by NASA as rocket fuel since 1958.
