Plastic Omnium has recently won a significant order from a German manufacturer for the development of 350-bar hydrogen tanks. The contract signed for bus equipment is the largest project in Europe at this time for this type of vehicle.
In parallel to this success, Plastic Omnium has just obtained its first certification for a 700-bar hydrogen storage tank designed to equip passenger cars. The certification, R134, is an international standard that ensures the respect of the strictest specifications of high-pressure hydrogen tanks regulations. Other certifications are underway for 350-bar hydrogen tanks and for CNG tanks.
This contract and this first certification demonstrate the recognition of Plastic Omnium’s technological know-how, developed in the field of high-pressure composite plastic tanks over the last four years.
