HSE Liquid Hydrogen Testing Facility
With a greater energy density than the gaseous form, liquid
hydrogen (LH2) could form part of the UK's energy strategy in the
In order to enable the safe and widespread adoption of LH2 as an
energy storage and transportation method, HSE's Science and
Research Centre is currently performing LH2 testing supplied by a
2.5 tonne road tanker - a unique and strategically important
facility in the UK for research into this current topic.
This 2.5 tonne cryogenic road tanker stores liquid hydrogen at
-253 degree C.
HSE is using this facility to conduct important pioneering
prenormative research and testing into the behaviour, safe handling
and use of liquid and cryogenic hydrogen in aviation, road
transport and other novel industrial applications.
