During the Expo Shanghai 2010, 196 fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs) were used to transport visitors in and around the Expo Site. To ensure a reliable fuel supply to these FCVs, a well-designed hydrogen supply chain was established, including an industrial by-product hydrogen purification facility, two fixed hydrogen refueling stations and two mobile hydrogen refueling stations. This paper describes the design of this hydrogen supply chain. The experiences, learnings and quantitative findings from the operation of this hydrogen infrastructure are also presented. In general, the hydrogen supply chain performed well in terms of hydrogen quality and the stations availability. The fact that the FCVs were refueled over 20000 times without major incidents can clearly be seen as a success.
