The Chemical Industry Portal, in its July/August 2023 issue, publishes an extensive article about the AVOGADRO Project developments. An initiative led by Iberdrola and composed of eight Basque companies, including LUMIKER, which aims to develop advanced technologies that meet high standards of performance, safety, and efficiency. Subsidized by the Basque Government, it focuses on researching technological solutions for new generations of green hydrogen service stations for heavy vehicles, thus contributing to ecological transition and transportation decarbonization.

AVOGADRO project developments
Avogadro is in its initial stage, establishing specifications and requirements, and has already made progress in legislation, regulations, and performance requirements. Among other aspects, technical developments have been identified to ensure the operation of the safety and monitoring system, including the specification of our CAMOS system for current measurement in conductors using fiber optics, which provides data on electrical consumption related to the electrolyzer. Thanks to this, the safety and operation system adds the capacity to perform the Balance of Plant (BoP) of the installation.
The project will continue to advance in the design, development, and validation of technologies, with the aim of contributing to the success of green hydrogen mobility in heavy vehicles.
This project aligns with the objectives of the Basque Hydrogen Strategy and the Energy Strategy of Euskadi 2030, which aim to achieve a cleaner and more sustainable fleet in transportation. In the context of the transition to renewable and zero-emission energy sources, green hydrogen emerges as a vital solution for heavy vehicles, where electric batteries cannot provide the necessary autonomy.
