HRS reveals new hydrogen refueling station dispenser
The new station’s dispenser, created in partnership with Philippe Starck, was unveiled by HRS, a European designer and manufacturer of hydrogen refueling stations, during the opening of COP28, which will take place in Dubai from November 30 to December 12, 2023. The first dispensers for the HRS14 (200 kg/day) and HRS40 (1 tonne/day) stations will be placed starting in 2024.
Hamburg Airport becomes member of “Hydrogen Hub at Airport” network
Hamburg Airport has become the first German and the 12th worldwide member of the global “Hydrogen Hub at Airport” network. This network, which consists of members from 11 different nations’ airports, airlines, and energy sectors, intends to increase the amount of hydrogen infrastructure in the aviation industry.
Doosan unveils H2-PEMFC hydrogen fuel cell systems for buildings
The development of 1kW and 10kW hydrogen polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (H2-PEMFC) systems for homes and buildings was revealed by South Korea’s Doosan Corp. on Friday.
In contrast to typical systems that depend on natural gas reformation, the H2-PEMFC systems directly use hydrogen fuel. Compared to other hydrogen fuel cell designs, this pure hydrogen approach has lower operating temperatures, which allows for improved electrical efficiency and quick load following capabilities.
For the H2-PEMFC systems, Doosan has received certification at the design and production stages in accordance with the stationary fuel cell safety standard KGS AH371.
Aldoga solar project that will supply power for green hydrogen factory gets underway
The largest solar project in Australia to date, the 380 MW Aldoga solar project in Gladstone will supply all of the energy needed for a green hydrogen factory when construction on the project gets underway.
Construction is scheduled to start in early 2024, around 20 kilometers north of the Gladstone port, a hub for the coal and LNG industries. The Queensland government, which has contracted the output for the solar project through the state-owned Stanwell generation company, states this.
Multiverse boosts green hydrogen production
Quantum algorithms have been employed by Multiverse Computing to optimize the electrolysis procedure for the production of green hydrogen. Compared to the classical solver, the quantum solver produces 5% more H2 and generates corresponding money for the solution. Using plant operational characteristics as inputs, the quantum digital twin numerically simulates a green hydrogen generation facility. By optimizing hydrogen production with a classical solver, the virtual factory produced 62,579 kg of green H2 and generated 154,204 euros in revenue.
AMETIC, Spain’s digital industry association, and IDEA Engineer, an engineering firm that specializes in sustainable projects and digital twins, are partners of Multiverse in this endeavor. The digital twin ecosystem was created by IDEA to maximize the production of green hydrogen. AMETIC is in charge of project coordination overall.
Sosteneo acquires share in the Puglia Green Hydrogen Valley project
To decarbonize Italy’s greatest energy and steel center, Sosteneo SGR SpA announced on Thursday that it will acquire a 40% share in the Puglia Green Hydrogen Valley project.
In order to generate green hydrogen, the project will deploy 160 MW of electrolysers and 260 MW of solar photovoltaic generation capacity near Brindisi and Taranto in the Puglia area of Italy. According to Sosteneo, the use of green hydrogen in direct reduction iron production facilities will lower carbon emissions at the Taranto steel factory and a group of other Italian steel mills.
Pre-assembled nickel-hydrogen battery vessels available from EnerVenue
The EnerVenue Energy Rack is being introduced by EnerVenue, a US-based maker of metal-hydrogen batteries with a three-time daily cycle and a two-to 12-hour discharge rate. Energy Storage Vessels (ESVs) in 150 kWh and 102 kWh versions are included into each rack.
According to the business, the solution consists of unique battery management system (BMS) hardware, wiring, and connectors needed for integration into specially designed structures or containers, as well as next-generation ESV batteries from EnerVenue.
The September announcement of the next generation ESV battery was made with large-scale renewable energy and storage applications in mind. According to reports, it has a 30-year, 30,000-cycle lifespan. After that time, the manufacturer offers a 20-year/20,000-cycle warranty, which ensures that at least 88% of the battery will still be functional.
