Hexagon Purus opens new hydrogen cylinder manufacturing hub

Hexagon Purus today opened its new hydrogen cylinder manufacturing hub in Kassel, Germany. The new 83,000 ft² facility can support annual production of more than 40,000 type 4 high-pressure hydrogen cylinders for fuel cell electric mobility and hydrogen infrastructure applications.

The new facility will employ up to 300 workers and significantly increase the company’s current hydrogen cylinder manufacturing capacity. The current footprint of the facility also allows for further expansion since the building can accommodate additional production lines as demand for hydrogen storage applications continues to grow.

This is the company’s third opening of a new manufacturing facility this year, following the successful openings of the manufacturing facility for battery systems in Kelowna (Canada) in April and the hydrogen cylinder manufacturing facility in Westminster (Maryland, US) in January.

“We are very excited to announce the opening of our new greenfield site in Kassel,” said Michael Kleschinski, EVP at Hexagon Purus. “This will play a central role in further developing Hexagon Purus as a world-class manufacturer of safe and reliable hydrogen cylinders. With this facility, we have the necessary capacity to meet the rapidly growing demand for our hydrogen infrastructure and mobility applications. We believe the demand for our offerings will continue to increase, and we now have the footprint to support future customer growth.”

With the opening of the new hydrogen cylinder manufacturing hub in Kassel, Hexagon Purus is relocating its current hydrogen cylinder manufacturing from its former site in Kassel that was shared with Hexagon Composites.
