NanoSUN Pioneer

Reynolds Logistics has agreed a refuelling deal with hydrogen provider NanoSUN.

The partnership will see NanoSUN work with Reynolds to move hydrogen fuel to its customers' vehicles rather than seeing end users forced to move their fleets to the source on a daily basis.

Reynolds will support NanoSUN in providing its customers with its Pioneer Mobile Hydrogen Refuelling Station (HRS) which combines the features of volume gas storage, gas transportation and end use vehicle dispensing in a single ISO container.

It said the provision of a local distribution service would help kick-start hydrogen vehicle take-up.

NanoSUN’s proprietary multi-stage cascade refuelling system does not require fixed utilities, which it believes makes it the ideal solution for in-field and mobile refuelling, with a simple and intuitive design, facilitating rapid deployment.

Reynolds Logistics will offer the service to all NanoSUN Pioneer HRS customers, who will be able to benefit from a fast and efficient delivery service with real time ePOD confirmation, using industry leading back office and in-cab technology, and access to up-to-date information through a web portal.

Reynolds Logistics  is a leading company in the distribution of bulk fuels, lubricants, bitumen, specialist gases and hazardous goods. It has a significant presence and history in aviation and ground fuels distribution including lower carbon fuels like LNG and more recently opportunities in energy transition to green hydrogen.

NanoSUN’s chief executive Dean O’Connor said: “The Pioneer’s capacity to deliver multiple rapid full fills to hydrogen vehicle fleets offers the vital element needed if we’re to get the transport industry to a clean, green future fast. Reynolds Logistics are an excellent partner for the safe and efficient transport of our Pioneer system from hydrogen source to vehicle deployment, where vehicles are refuelled for commercial operations.”

Added Reynolds chief executive Andrew Reynolds: “The company is continuing growth into new markets including low and zero carbon fuels like hydrogen. Our key drivers of safety, innovation and customer satisfaction will support NanoSUN’s customers in the rapid deployment and operation of Pioneer, enabling rapid deployment of hydrogen vehicle fleets.”
