SIAD MI opens hydrogen compression test facility
By Roberta Prandi27 May 2022
SIAD Macchine Impianti opened an hydrogen compressor test facility at its Osio plant, near the company’s headquarters in Bergamo, Italy.
A dedicated compressor designed to reach high pressure for oil-free hydrogen compression applications will be installed in the testing facility by October 2022, to serve the further development of sealing technologies and solutions for hydrogen refuelling stations for heavy vehicles.
The compressor will utilize hydrogen produced in house, as the test facility is located next to a hydrogen productive unit that the parent company SIAD SpA has been operating since many years at the same plant.
