DD ISO/TS 15869:2009 Gaseous hydrogen and hydrogen blends. Land vehicle fuel tanks

Fuel tanks for on-board storage of compressed gaseous hydrogen and hydrogen blends as fuels for land vehicle service are required to maintain or improve the level of safety currently existing for land vehicle applications.

Technical Specification (TS) 15869 specifies the requirements for lightweight refillable fuel tanks intended for the onboard storage of high-pressure compressed gaseous hydrogen or hydrogen blends on land vehicles. It is not intended as a specification for fuel tanks used for solid, liquid hydrogen or hybrid cryogenic high-pressure hydrogen storage applications.

TS 15869 is applicable for fuel tanks of steel, stainless steel, aluminium or non-metallic construction material, using any design or method of manufacture suitable for its specified service conditions. It applies to the following types of fuel tank:

  • Type 1: metal fuel tanks
  • Type 2: hoop-wrapped composite fuel tanks with a metal liner
  • Type 3: fully wrapped composite fuel tanks with a metal liner
  • Type 4: fully wrapped composite fuel tanks with no metal liner.

DD ISO/TS 15869:2009 specifies the requirements for:

  • Service conditions
  • Information to be recorded 
  • Materials 
  • Design requirements 
  • Construction and workmanship
  • Type (qualification) tests
  • Production and batch tests
  • Markings
  • Preparation for dispatch.
