The Phaedrus project used ITM’s high pressure hydrogen electrolysis technology to design a method to deliver large amounts of hydrogen at high pressure to and from the station.
ITM was part of a consortium that included the European Commission and a number of international hydrogen specialists.
Phaedrus focused on the development of an all electrochemical hydrogen refuelling station, with ITM designing a way to transport 200kg per day of hydrogen, with efficiency of up to 75% at high density.
The design has been validated at the 5kg per day scale at its facilities in Sheffield, which are next to the recently opened hydrogen refuelling station just off the M1 motorway.
Dr Simon Bourne, ITM’s chief technical officer, said: “Phaedrus has been an excellent platform from which to develop, test and qualify our next generation electrolyser components.”
The group currently has £10.5mln of projects under contract and £7.9mln of contracts in the final stages of negotiation.
ITM Power will receive €870,000 (£613,000) for its contribution to the project.
