Australia’s first hydrogen-powered car to run on Coregas hydrogen

Australian gases company, Coregas will supply hydrogen gas for Hyundai’s
new hydrogen powered concept car, the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell. Hyundai is currently
installing Australia’s first hydrogen car refuelling station at its
headquarters in Macquarie Park, NSW.

Wesfarmers Industrial & Safety division company, Coregas will supply
high purity compressed hydrogen to the refuelling station designed as a special
hydrogen storage and dispensing system. Coregas worked closely with Air
Products, an international gases company and supplier of the refuelling
station, to provide a complete refuelling solution for Hyundai.

Hydrogen is a clean fuel, leaving only water as a by-product and
reducing the environmental impact of the vehicle. Longer term plans include
using solar energy and electrolysers to turn the entire production of hydrogen
on site into a completely green process.

Hyundai’s concept car is the first vehicle of its kind to be permanently
imported into Australia, and represents the first step towards a wider hydrogen
network in this country.
