Fabrum and Chart Industries join forces on micro-scale liquefiers for hydrogen

Fabrum, a New Zealand zero-emission transition technologies company, and Chart Industries, a global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment, have formed a strategic partnership to collaborate on the manufacture and sale of micro-scale liquefiers for hydrogen and other gases.

The micro-scale liquefier enables small-scale liquid hydrogen production under five tonnes per day, offering a new future for sustainable transport, industry, and energy self-sufficiency. The micro-scale liquefiers can also be used in liquid natural gas (LNG) and other cryogenic markets.

According to the MOU, Fabrum will incorporate Chart products into manufacturing their micro-scale liquefiers, while Chart will add the micro-scale liquefiers to its already expansive technology and equipment portfolio to market and sell through its global network.

Christopher Boyle, Fabrum’s Executive Chair, said: “Partnering with Chart, a world-leading technology innovator and supplier in clean energy and natural gas markets, represents an important milestone for Fabrum as we work to accelerate the uptake of our zero-emission transition technologies to enable a lower-carbon economy. We’ve already proven our hydrogen fuel solutions for small and medium-scale liquid hydrogen production, a paradigm shift from liquid hydrogen produced at large-scale plants and transported to the site of use. Chart is the ideal strategic partner to leverage Fabrum’s world-leading technology as it has a large and growing customer base and an established reputation as a technology innovator.”

Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO, commented: “Partnering with Fabrum on technology and sales allows us to extend our offering in micro-scale liquid hydrogen and liquid natural gas for refuelling and energy applications. We’re excited to bring this combination to our customers in heavy transport, mining, and industry as we continue to support their transition to new and cleaner technologies with our extensive product and technology portfolio.”
