Goal of this project is to develop a flexible modular cost efficient hydrogen supply infrastructure for different applications consisting of a scalable 350 bar high-pressure electrolysis, an optional 700 bar compressor unit and a dispenser module for both pressure for different customer requirements. Such an infrastructure will be developed on three different locations. Additionally, a battery driven vehicle for municipal usage will be changed to a fuel cell range extender vehicle. The vehicle integration of the fuel cell range extender system will happen after optimization and testing at a newly available fuel cell system integration test bed. Within the final testing, all developed technologies will be validated, both separately and combined.
