Erne Fittings introduced in-house developed and manufactured high-tech components for hydrogen transport in Bremen. The need to reduce CO2 emissions is a major issue internationally. That is why the R&D department at Erne Fittings began intensively working on defining a standard for the transport of hydrogen (H2), at an early stage. The industrial piping component company is a pioneer within the industry. Erne Fittings’ products have also contributed to the energy transition in several ways. Fittings are used in plants for the generation and distribution of district heating, as well for the manufacture of components for electric vehicle production. The portfolio was now expanded to include H2-suitable pipe fittings, with Erne being the only company worldwide able to offer a product specifically certified for hydrogen transport.
With three production sites in Austria and Saudi Arabia, Erne is able to achieve an availability of over 95% with its entire stock program. It includes elbows, tees and reducers designed according to ASTM or EN standards.
