CALGARY, May 29 /CNW/ - Dynetek Industries Ltd. ("Dynetek"), a leader in
developing, producing and marketing lightweight compressed natural gas (CNG)
storage cylinders and compressed hydrogen storage cylinders, announced today
they have received approval from U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) of
their 450 Bar ( 6527 PSI) cylinder for use in Dynetek "BT450" Tube Trailer
In October 2007, Dynetek announced delivery of the first "BT450" Tube
trailer systems for the transport of hydrogen in Canada. These first systems
were approved by Transport Canada for operation within Canada.
"Today we are pleased to announce that our 450 bar cylinder and system
design has been approved by the US DOT which will enable operation of our
"BT450" Tube Trailer systems throughout North America." said Dr. Christian
Rasche, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dynetek. "The traditional
method of bulk gas hauling is with steel tube trailers with typical operating
pressure of 3000 psi. Our new high pressure cylinders and systems which will
operate at 6500 psi, will enable direct refueling of Hydrogen vehicles from
our specially designed "BT450" modules."
Dynetek has received an order from Air Liquide to provide cylinders for
the construction of a "BT450" Tube Trailer system, which will be used to
refuel the Hydrogen bus fleet being deployed by BC Transit for the 2010 Winter
Games in Whistler, British Columbia.
Dynetek's "BT450" Tube Trailer systems can be used to support hydrogen
powered fuel cell and internal combustion engine vehicles by providing mobile
refueling capability. The systems will play a significant role in providing
much needed hydrogen infrastructure, which will enable real life every day
road testing of vehicles in areas where refueling infrastructure does not
