Dave Farese

Lead Engineer
Customer Engineering group

Dave is a member of the Hydrogen Safety Panel and currently works for Air Products. He joined Air Products in 1989 and has served in several  engineering and operations positions. Nearly all of this time has been spent working with hydrogen and on hydrogen related systems. He currently is the Lead Engineer for the Complex and Revenue Projects team within the Customer Engineering group. His responsibilities include leading a team of engineers to design, build, and install complex gas delivery systems to support customer needs. These systems usually require high pressure and/or high flow requirements. In addition, this team has a focus on providing engineering and project services to meet customer needs and generate revenue. Specific duties include system design; scope, schedule and budget development; sales and marketing support; project execution; and technical support. Previously, Dave served as a Lead Process Safety Engineer in the Electronics and Performance Materials group. This role supported the process safety requirements for new projects and operating facilities. Activities included risk analysis, performance of hazard reviews, and incident investigation.

During his time at Air Products, he has been involved in developing, testing, and deploying new products to support rapidly evolving hydrogen fueling needs. He also has worked to support the nascent hydrogen codes and standards effort and has taken a lead role in providing hydrogen safety training. He has been the project manager for over a dozen high-pressure hydrogen compression systems, and has provided technical support and project management to increase safety, reliability, and productivity of industrial gas supply systems, with a specialty in hydrogen compression. He has provided commissioning services, engineering support and troubleshooting of mechanical and electrical problems for hydrogen systems installed at customer facilities. He also participates in several codes and standards efforts and is a principal member of the NFPA 2 and NFPA 52Technical Committees, the DOE Hydrogen Safety Panel, and holds over 15 patents in the areas of hydrogen fueling and high-pressure compression.
