Institute - Guidance on hydrogen delivery systems for refuelling of motor
vehicles, co-located with petrol fuelling stations
This publication provides guidance for companies that provide hydrogen for the refuelling of motor vehicles and for authorities responsible for granting permits and supervising these companies when co-location with petrol filling stations is proposed. It provides a summary of technical guidance for the design, construction, maintenance and management of hydrogen fuelling stations in relation to their interaction with petrol filling stations when the two facilities are co-located, ensuring an acceptable level of protection for public safety, health and the environment for both facilities.
It gives a summary of regulations, requirements, criteria and conditions based on current industry good practice as reflected in British Compressed Gases Association CP 41: The design, construction, maintenance and operation of filling stations dispensing gaseous fuels, and links the specific requirements for hydrogen refuelling with current industry guidance relating to petrol filling stations.
As such, it supplements the APEA/EI Blue Book - Design, construction, modification, maintenance and decommissioning of petrol filling stations (third edition).
This publication was developed by a joint industry working group which included the British Compressed Gases Association, the Association for Petroleum and Explosives Administration (APEA) and the Service station panel of the Energy Institute (EI).
