Making the mobility of tomorrow safe, that is the goal of INVENT GmbH in the BMBF-funded project “CarbonSafe 2”. Together with the project partners Fraunhofer IKTS and AUCOTEAM GmbH, a measuring system for the structural health monitoring of lightweight hydrogen tanks is being developed with the help of DuraAct technology and tested in a field test.
The measuring system can give an early warning if the high-pressure tank made of fiber composite material has microscopic damages and therefore needs to be repaired or replaced. The technology is intended to significantly increase safety, especially after accidents. This makes an important contribution to hydrogen mobility, a technology of the future.
