He added that the compressor has been developed for use in hydrogen filling stations for heavy vehicles that are gradually beginning to appear around the world. “Just like traditional, gasoline fuel stations, hydrogen stations will also be equipped with pumping systems, using compressors like ours.”

The design of the new compressor focused on safety, low maintenance cycles, and low energy consumption. Gadkary said: “Our customers can rely on us to provide solutions that keep downtime to a minimum, ensuring continuous, trouble-free production. We recognize that every customer has different needs, and we are able to adapt our solutions to meet those needs.
