SUNDERLAND, U.K. – April 6, 2021 – Haskel’s Hydrogen Systems Group, a business of the Precision and Science Technologies Segment at Ingersoll Rand Inc. (NYSE:IR), and Hiringa Energy, the first company in New Zealand dedicated to the supply of green hydrogen, are pleased to announce the inaugural fuelling at its newly deployed hydrogen refuelling station in Rolleston, New Zealand.

The collaboration between Haskel and Hiringa is a key advancement in New Zealand’s initiatives for zero emission transport solutions.


Stephen Learney, general manager of Haskel, states, “We are proud to be part of a trifecta in a world-leading move toward hydrogen mobility. New Zealand is a first-mover, committing to building out the hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in 2021 through this partnership between Hiringa and Haskel Hydrogen Solutions.”

Hiringa’s Chief Technology Officer, Dan Kahn states, “This is a great way to kick off 2021, and a significant milestone for commercial hydrogen refuelling across New Zealand. It is a great opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders in hydrogen infrastructure and vehicle manufacturing.”

Haskel’s support on this project furthers Hiringa’s work to establish one of the world’s first nationwide hydrogen refuelling networks, coming online in New Zealand throughout 2021. Paul Peverley, Haskel’s Sales Director for Australia and New Zealand says “partnering with a skilled operator like Hiringa allows us to introduce Haskel’s industry leading products to hydrogen refuelling opportunities in a rapidly advancing region.”

At this newly completed station, Haskel’s hydrogen compression system will support the fuelling of buses and trucks up to 350 bar working pressure. The system’s and station’s capabilities demonstrate the viability and availability of hydrogen refuelling throughout New Zealand.
