HYDROGEN TANKERS

Tube trailers or tankers are used to transport gaseous hydrogen and liquified hydrogen. Usually, hydrogen is transported as a liquid in insulated, cryogenic tanker trucks, and also in bulk by rails with double walls, multi-layer insulation, and sunlight reflectors.

Typically, hydrogen is transported in tube trailers in the UK. A typical trailer would be filled to 228 bars and would carry around 300 kg of hydrogen. There are now available on the market, high capacity 300 bar trailers, which could carry 600 kg at 228 bar and 900 kg at 300 bars. There are also 500 bar trailers in development.
