Design, manufacture and experimental validation of a tank to store hydrogen at high pressure.

The HIDROGENIA project develops and validates to TRL 5 a type IV tank to safely store hydrogen at high pressure (700 bars).

These types of tanks are already manufactured today, but they present permeability problems because the materials used do not have a sufficient barrier effect against hydrogen passage.

Eurecat participates in the HIDROGENIA project through different Technological Units:

In addition to Eurecat, HIDROGENIA is participated by the aeronautical engineering company SOFITEC.
