This hydrogen fueling facility at the Richmond Field Station in Richmond California was built by the University of California - Berkeley and Toyota to support testing of fuel cell research vehicles and became operational in April 2011. The station dispenses hydrogen at up to 700 bar (10,000 psi) with pre-cooling for faster fill times. Hydrogen is delivered and stored in a tube trailer prior to being compressed and dispensed. The station stores about 375 kilograms in total and can dispense up to 24 kilograms of hydrogen per day.
