Quantity and Pressure limitation

This LAP¨refers to the quantity and pressure limitations. It underlines what are the requirements and limitations in terms of pressure and quantity of hydrogen for hydrogen transport. Finally, it shows if it is possible to increase the pressure/quantity, and if yes which authority is competent, what is the process to follow, how long does it takes and what are the costs associated if known.


Quantity and Pressure limitation represent the maximum quantity and/or pressure of gases which is allowed to be transported.

Pan-European Assessment:

There is no limitation in terms of pressure, (mostly transported at around 200-300 bars) In terms of quantity, the limitation is connected to the maximum weight the truck can transport.

severity of barrier:

No data No barrier Low Medium High
