UK and South Africa to jointly drive green hydrogen projects
The British Government will announce the next stage of the alleged UK-South Africa Infrastructure Alliance during the two-day State visit that South African President Cyril Ramaphosa will make to London.
In order to expand capacity and enable South Africa take advantage of green hydrogen prospects, the UK government will offer further technical assistance.
The major trading partner of the UK in Africa is South Africa, which has the second-largest economy on the continent.
Prior to visiting Sunak at Downing Street for a bilateral encounter, Ramaphosa is anticipated to attend a state banquet at Buckingham Palace.
The London Government also emphasized that a partnership between the two governments in the field of skills and education will foster shared learning in technical and vocational education, fostering young employment.
Tongyeong City promotes hydrogen transportation complex base
Tongyeong City hosted a concession agreement ceremony at City Hall for the promotion of the “Hydrogen Transportation Complex Base Construction Project” with High Station, Busan/Tongyeong Transportation, and Shinheung Passenger Automobile.
The ‘Hydrogen Transportation Complex Base Construction Project’, which is being promoted to lay the groundwork for an environmentally friendly hydrogen bus public transportation system, establish a stable operating system, and confirm the implementation of the hydrogen bus conversion step by step, was prepared for by this agreement ceremony.
The agreement’s main purpose is to outline the division of responsibilities and compliance issues among the participating organizations for the development and post-operation of the hydrogen transportation complex base construction project. It also outlines the gradual conversion of all current diesel city buses to hydrogen eco-friendly buses in line with the completion of the charging station. They pledged to make their mutual cooperation stronger.
Schmitz Cargobull equips Hyundai hydrogen truck
With its M.KO body and hydrogen-powered engine, Schmitz Cargobull gave its client hylane the first climate-neutral vehicle combination.
The Hyundai hydrogen truck’s body, which was made at the Schmitz Cargobull plant in Lithuania, has two rails for elevating the rear and fastening the load, as well as a multipurpose floor. The Schmitz Cargobull design manufacturing is still housed at the GRW plant in Todin, where the vehicle was assembled and subjected to DEKRA inspection.
Thanks to funding from the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport, hylane can provide the only rental service for climate-neutral mobility vehicles at affordable rates. Customers are charged based on distance traveled.
Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state investing in hydrogen
The state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is hoping to use the hydrogen economy to take advantage of its geographic advantage in terms of renewable energy sources.
The association, which is primarily sponsored by the Rostock Apex Group, is backed by the state with about 280,000 euros.
“In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, we are paying particular attention not only to building up production capacities for renewable energies and green hydrogen, but also to building complete value chains including consumption here in the state,” said Economics Minister Reinhard Meyer (SPD).
First agricultural green hydrogen machine installed in Spain
Antonio Luengo, the Minister of Agriculture, attended the presentation of Agrocomponentes’ first green hydrogen machine built in Spain for the agricultural industry on Monday.
The business ACOM-Agrocomponentes announced a small, effective machine with “zero” carbon emissions that may be utilized as a fuel source or energy storage device in the agricultural industry.
Large volumes of hydrogen can be stored with this apparatus at low temperatures and low pressures (less than 40 bars). The same amount of energy may be stored with this form of metal hydride hydrogen storage technique in 15 times less space than a pressurized gas tank. With an anticipated usable life of up to 30 years, these systems offer up to 3,500 charge and discharge cycles without capacity loss or storage deterioration.
