Hydrogen is poised to play a significant role in the global move towards electrification and efforts are currently underway to establish Australia as a major global player by 2030. Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are being manufactured and trialled for Australian use, and infrastructure development for hydrogen production and fueling facilities is also underway.
This presentation will provide an overview of current hydrogen and fuel cell applications, along with basic safety considerations and resources that are available for designers, fire safety officials and fire fighters. The session will include information on leak and flame detection, electrical classifications, emergency shutdown systems, selection of materials, and ventilation and vent systems designs. There will also be time for questions and discussion.
