Siemens Energy and Quinto Energy to establish green hydrogen project in Bahia
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed by Siemens Energy and Quinto Energy to establish a large-scale green hydrogen project in Bahia.
A million tons of H2V are expected to be produced annually, according to the feasibility study.
The venture will also have an operations and technology center in addition to the installation of an electrolyser plant at the Camaçari petrochemical complex.
The fuel produced will be exported to Europe, according to the business plan. The gasoline will be created using the energy provided by five hybrid Quinto Energy complexes located in Bahia’s north and southwest. The five complexes combined have 20 GW of installed capacity, producing 65 TWh of power annually.
Medgaz explores Almera gas pipeline adaptation to hydrogen
In order to adapt the current infrastructure between Almera and Orán to the combined transit of natural gas and hydrogen, Medgaz will carry out the necessary research.
The essential studies to determine if Medgaz’s infrastructures are suitable for the transportation of hydrogen and various hydrogen-to-natural gas mixture ratios will be conducted in 2023.
With the start-up of a fourth turbocharger at the Béni Saf station (Algeria), Medgaz has just finished the expansion of its facilities, increasing the transport capacity to 10 bcm annually.
Hyundai N Vision 74 premiers in US
The hydrogen fuel cell hybrid Hyundai N Vision 74 concept made its US debut at Automobility LA.
This idea demonstrates the Hyundai N sub-dedication brand’s to zero-emissions technologies and exposes its electrification vision. It is built on the “Rolling Lab” idea, which is a testbed for emerging technology looking for the driver’s highest level of emotional engagement. The N brand is able to test the most cutting-edge technologies in both production car development and motorsport thanks to this tactical strategy.
N Vision 74 is the culmination of seven years of technological advancement and the N brand’s dedication to providing automobile enthusiasts with a promising future, regardless of the form of propulsion.
The 9.3 lb. capacity hydrogen fuel tanks located at the rear of the N Vision 74 can be refueled in five minutes and have dual charging capabilities. The 62kWh battery is charged by the 85kW fuel cell, which transforms hydrogen into power. The battery also utilizes the fast-chargeable 800V battery technology from Hyundai’s e-GMP platform. Flexibility for a variety of situations, such as spirited driving on the freeway or performance driving on racetracks, is provided by fuel and charging outlets for both hydrogen and electricity.
Hunan province plans new fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen recharging stations
In the four years leading up to 2025, the Hunan province of China intends to deploy 500 fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) and construct 10 hydrogen recharging facilities.
According to the development plan, the province anticipates that by 2025, the hydrogen industrial chain will essentially be formed, with more than 100 companies engaged in hydrogen-related activities. Additionally, between 2022 and 2025, Hunan will gradually advance its pilot applications of hydrogen in sectors including engineering machinery, transportation, ports, and distributed power generation. The utilization rate of hydrogen from industrial by-products will be significantly increased, breakthroughs in hydrogen production from renewable resources will be made, and hydrogen utilization from industrial by-products will be significantly increased.
The Hunan hydrogen industry will enter the scale application stage during the years 2031–2035. At this level, a network for hydrogen production, delivery, storage, and sale is essentially created, as well as a full-fledged system for autonomous innovation in hydrogen technologies and open cooperation.
Bavarian minister goes to Italy and Austria to talk hydrogen
Hubert Aiwanger, the minister of economics for Bavaria, travels to Italy and Austria with a corporate group to look for hydrogen supply lines.
Domestic production should be complemented by international cooperation. In order for German manufacturing to remain viable, fossil fuels must be eliminated.
Venetia, an Italian territory with easy access to the Mediterranean Sea and one of Italy’s more prosperous regions, is Aiwanger’s first stop. If Europe starts importing hydrogen, this might be significant.
Aiwanger and the business delegation paid a visit to Martin Kocher, the Austrian Minister for Economic Affairs, during the second leg of their journey to Austria. Future pipes from Austria to Bavaria could also transport some of the hydrogen.
