Irving’s Flowserve Partners with Chart Industries on Hydrogen as Alternate Fuel Source

The two companies will partner on liquid hydrogen fueling pumps for more than 100 systems planned to be put into operation in California, Australia, and South Korea over the next five years. The pumps will be used in Chart's liquid hydrogen fuel station equipment for fuel cell vehicles.

Flowserve CEO R. Scott Rowe says the partnership will "support the development and commercialization of hydrogen as an energy source to build a better, brighter world for everyone."

Irving-based Flowserve Corp. and Chart Industries will partner in support of the growth of hydrogen as an alternative, cleaner fuel source for liquid hydrogen fuel station equipment.

Flowserve is a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets. Georgia-based Chart Industries is a leading manufacturer of highly engineered equipment servicing applications in the clean energy and industrial gas markets.

“We understand that hydrogen represents a significant opportunity in helping the world reduce carbon emissions, and one of the first steps in creating a sustainable hydrogen value chain is to innovate and commercialize hydrogen technologies,” Scott Rowe, Flowserve president and CEO, said in a statement. He added that the partnership will “advance our offerings in the hydrogen market in alignment with our diversification, decarbonization, and digitization strategy, as well as support the development and commercialization of hydrogen as an energy source to build a better, brighter world for everyone.”

Flowserve to be Chart’s sole manufacturer and supplier of liquid hydrogen fueling pump

Under the agreement, Flowserve will acquire in-process R&D related to Chart’s liquid hydrogen fueling pump and will be Chart’s sole manufacturer and supplier of the pump once commercial production has begun, the companies said in a statement.

Chart will use these pumps in its liquid hydrogen fuel station equipment for fuel cell vehicles. The equipment will be incorporated into systems that will be used to fuel hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric trucks, cars, buses, as well as future hydrogen vehicles.

Currently, more than 100 liquid hydrogen fueling systems are planned to be put into operation over the next five years in locations including California, Australia, and South Korea.

“Chart is proud to be recognized as a leader in the clean energy transition by providing technology, equipment and services related to the Nexus of Clean—clean power, clean water, clean food, and clean industrials,” Jillian Evanko, Chart Industries CEO, said in a statement. “By partnering with a global flow control leader like Flowserve, we can accelerate the adoption of hydrogen infrastructure utilizing both teams’ core expertise.”
