September was a busy month for Haskel Europe, with the commissioning, relocation and recommissioning of two Hydrogen Refueling Stations. Haskel (Ingersoll Rand NYSE:IR) has been providing hydrogen refueling solutions for several years and, with shifts in ownership and the ever-fluid landscape within the emerging automotive sector, was challenged to decommission, relocate, and recommission one of its earlier installations. The station, initially supporting the French postal service (La Poste), was located in Luxeuil but has recently been relocated and safely recommissioned in Grand Dole to become the first hydrogen fuel distribution station in the region. This station has operated successfully for over 5 years and, following a change of ownership, it will now be owned by Grand Dole, with the station being operated by Colruyt via its DATS 24 fuel distribution subsidiary. Haskel is committed to supporting our products in service and we were more than happy to support the relocation of the equipment in line with the new owner's needs and objectives. Stewart Anderson, Engineering Manager, commented, “This was a great opportunity to give one of our original Hydrogen Refueling Stations a new lease on life and, as Haskel is the OEM of the majority of the components within the system it meant we were perfectly positioned to be able to complete this project safely, on schedule and within budget.” Haskel has the benefit over other HRS suppliers of being the major component manufacturer for its HRS installations.
