Loading Bay

Your specialist in Liquid Hydrogen Infrastructure

Demaco loading bay


The Demaco loading bay allows liquid hydrogen to be easily and safely loaded into a transport vehicle. The cryogenic liquid is transferred through vacuum insulated pipes from an on-site storage vessel to a ship or truck for long-distance transport.

A loading bay contains valves, pressure relief mechanisms, and monitoring and control technology. If required, all components can be mounted in a vacuum insulated box, thus creating a safe and efficient unit. In this way, the system’s total cost is reduced while efficiency increases.


Loading bays make it possible to transport liquid hydrogen by ship or truck over long distances. The transport of liquid hydrogen is an essential factor in its large-scale use. Not every end-user is located close to a producer of liquid hydrogen or in an area where this cryogenic liquid is available.

A loading bay is always part of a cryogenic infrastructure, including vacuum insulated liquid hydrogen transfer lines (LH2 VIP), Johnston or welded couplings, valves, pressure relief mechanisms, and monitoring and control technology. Also, a loading bay often contains flexible vacuum insulated pipes, which are used to readily route the liquid hydrogen to a truck or ship filling point.

Optionally, hydrogen purification can be added as a process step in the loading bay.


All loading bays are vacuum insulated and made of stainless steel, which is ideally suited for the application of liquid hydrogen.

The Demaco loading bay can be delivered and installed both mobile (on a trailer) and at a fixed location. Together with our customers, we look at which option best fits the particular project.
