Introducing HSE’s LH2 testing facility

The ELVHYS project is just one of a number of current research projects making use of HSE's liquid hydrogen testing facility.

This 2.5 tonne cryogenic road tanker stores liquid hydrogen at -253 degrees C and right now is a unique and strategically important facility in the UK for research into this current topic.
