Tyseley Refuelling Hub
The low and zero carbon refuelling station on Tyseley Energy Park will be unmanned with 24/7 refuelling available. Pay at pump option will be integrated into the dispenser display head at each refuelling point which will accept credit, debit and fuel card payments. Refuelling facilities at TEP will include Hydrogen, Compressed Natural Gas, Biodiesel and electrical charging options.
The hydrogen will be produced on site using a 3MW ITM Power Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser, which splits water into hydrogen and oxygen, eliminating the requirement for deliveries, and therefore generating a clean fuel. The fuel is produced using a 3MW ITM Power Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser, which splits water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen generated is very high purity, meeting all requirements for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs). The hydrogen is dispensed at 700bar and 350bar ensuring a very quick and efficient refuel that can provide a 300-350 mile range. When hydrogen is used in a fuel cell, it returns back to water vapour, meaning hydrogen as a fuel is a very clean fuel option.
Compressed Natural Gas
CNG can be used by HGVs as an alternative to diesel. A CNG refuelling station operates by extracting gas from a natural gas pipeline, compressing the gas by using on-site compressors and then dispensing it into trucks. By displacing diesel with bio-CNG a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with a diesel truck is achieved. CNG also helps reduce harmful particulate emissions from engines and CNG vehicles also run approx. 50% quieter than a comparable diesel vehicle. The pumps will be fully automated, self-service operated.

The Certas Energy state-of-the-art bunker provides a convenient place for HGV operators to refuel on diesel, gas oil and Adblue via eight high-speed pumps.
The facility will be the second refuelling bunker in the country to dispense Shell GTL Fuel, offering a cleaner burning, drop-in alternative to diesel for on-road and off-road applications. The use of Shell GTL Fuel immediately lowers emissions of harmful pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM). The fuel also delivers additional performance benefits for vehicles operating in built-up urban areas, such a reducing fuel odours and engine noise levels. Shell GTL Fuel will also power the site’s truck wash facility for large vehicles.

Improved vehicle design and battery performance and falling prices is enabling widespread electric vehicle market penetration. This combined with policy support and restrictions on other vehicles to improve air quality, such as Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone will increase this momentum even further.
Tyseley Energy Park will offer a range of electric charging facilities including 150kW electric vehicle rapid chargers. Vehicle and fleet owners will be offered a lower cost electric charging unit price if they commit to a defined dwell time at the charging points.
