EDF makes pink hydrogen using nuclear
Pink hydrogen will be produced by EDF using nuclear power for the first time in the UK. Industry will make use of this to produce asphalt.
The “Bay Hydrogen Hub – Hydrogen4Hanson” demonstrator project is funded to the tune of 17.5 million euros by a number of business partners and the British government.
A 1 MW solid oxide electrolyser (SOE), whose efficiency is said to be 20% higher than that of a PEM electrolyser, will be used to produce hydrogen. This system will be run on electricity and water steam generated by the 1.25 GW “Heysham 2” nuclear power station in the northwest of England, which is under the management of EDF.
First public green hydrogen refueling station in Africa
On Thursday of last week, the first public green hydrogen refueling station in Africa got its first bricks laid. Finance and Public Enterprises Minister Iipumbu Shiimi presided over the ceremony. Cleanergy Solutions Namibia, a partnership between the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group and CMB.TECH, is carrying out the project.
Solar energy is utilized on-site for hydrogen generation at the N$4 billion hydrogen production facility being built in Walvis Bay. By the middle of 2024, the hydrogen refueling station is anticipated to be completely operational.
The facility’s main purpose is to feed vehicles, port machinery, and railway uses with hydrogen. A Hydrogen Academy will be built as a crucial component of this project to instruct and train locals on hydrogen technology and its numerous applications.
Poneering hydrogen project in Wales celebrates its six-month milestone
As one of the first operational hydrogen production facilities in the UK, a groundbreaking hydrogen project in Wales is marking its six-month anniversary.
Pioneer 1, which is led by green hydrogen industry pioneer Protium, not only aids in decarbonization but also supports Protium’s goal of bringing a cleaner, healthier future to the United Kingdom.
Pioneer 1, which is located on the University of South Wales Hydrogen Centre in Baglan, has been a crucial source of hydrogen for regional bus experiments and other enterprises, advancing Wales toward a more environmentally friendly future.
