Conference accompanying programme

Those interested will meet at 2.30 p.m. at the main entrance to the Gong Auditorium, from where we will walk together to the Science and Technology Centre.

After the conference, we have prepared an interesting accompanying programme in cooperation with Cylinders Holding and Siemens Smart Infrastructure.

You can look forward to a guided tour of the newly opened hydrogen filling station and a presentation of the hydrogen trailer for transporting compressed hydrogen, along with the opportunity to drive a hydrogen-powered Toyota Mirai.

The first public hydrogen filling station in the Czech Republic was put into operation at the end of June by VÍTKOVICE. The filling station is designed for passenger vehicles and is located at the entrance to the Cylinders Holding production area. It is registered in the European network of hydrogen filling stations. The total investment amounted to approximately CZK 15 million and the construction took two months from the time the building permit was issued.

You will also have the opportunity to see the Solaris Urbino 12 electric bus and learn about its charging technology. In case of interest and time capacity, a tour of the electric bus through the charging station is planned with the possibility to get off on the way back at the Hotel Imperial or at the Gong.

The SICHARGE UC charging station has a maximum DC output current of up to 500 A and a voltage of up to 1000 V. The core of the system is the charging centre, the equipment also includes a charging control system and controlled rectifiers. The cable supply to the charging arm is also routed from the charging centre. The charging infrastructure technology is unattended.
