Hydrogen as an energy carrier has the highest gravimetric energy density and its mass-based energy density is almost three times higher than that of liquid hydrocarbons, notwithstanding, the volumetric energy density of hydrogen is comparatively low. This is the reason why the density of hydrogen must be increased significantly for storage purposes.
Hydrogen can be physically stored as either a gas or a liquid. Storage as a gas typically requires high-pressure tanks (5000–10,000 psi tank pressure). Storage of hydrogen as a liquid requires cryogenic temperatures because the boiling point of hydrogen at one-atmosphere pressure is -252.8°C.
Hydrogen is not a new element for ALAUSAT. Hydrogen has been consumed for years in refineries in a variety of hydro-desulfurization (HDS) and hydrocracking operations and our Team has the experience enough to be able of designing and manufacturing efficient vessels and tanks with the most efficient technology and at the lowest costs.
