SEOUL, Sept. 1 (Korea Bizwire) — A safety monitoring system for hydrogen fueling stations that manages the operational situation of all the stations in real time 24 hours a day has been established.
The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the state-run Korea Gas Safety Corp. (KGS) announced the launch of full-scale operations of a new safety monitoring system for hydrogen fueling stations on Tuesday.
Using exclusive programs installed at each fueling station, the system sends information about the operational situation of safety devices and core facilities within stations in real time to the KGS’s control room.
If an abnormal situation is detected, the system instantly displays a warning alarm on the screen at the control room, while sending an emergency text alert to the safety managers of the fueling stations and the KGS workers on duty.
The system will monitor a total of 89 hydrogen fueling stations (109 chargers) that are currently operating across the country.
With the establishment of this real-time monitoring system, hydrogen fueling stations will have a three-tier safety check system, including the operators’ daily checks and KGS field inspections.
