ABB and PERIC Hydrogen Technologies, China’s leading manufacturer of hydrogen generation technology, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to accelerate the widespread adoption of hydrogen as an energy source. Both companies will explore how integration of ABB’s automation, electrification and digital solutions with PERIC’s electrolyzers can help reduce hydrogen generation costs in the future.
The collaboration between ABB and PERIC will comprise ongoing consultation relating to the development of joint solutions and/or the integration of complementary technologies that will optimize efficient green hydrogen generation.
PERIC will integrate an extensive scope of ABB’s automation, electrification and digital solutions into the project and bring ABB in on the initiatives where specific ABB technology can be included, such as rectifiers, distributed control systems, energy management, advanced analytics, instrumentation and telecommunication.
ABB is collaborating with customers and partners to develop and integrate technology that will make green hydrogen an accessible, affordable component of the world’s low-carbon energy mix. In Italy, ABB is partnering with Swiss utility company Axpo to develop modular green hydrogen plants that aim to create an optimum operating model to produce affordable, green hydrogen. In France, ABB is supplying its Freelance distributed control system and ABB Ability™ Manufacturing Operations Management digital platform to the first production site for Lhyfe, a producer and supplier of 100 percent green hydrogen. ABB is also working with Hydrogen Optimized, a sustainable energy conversion company in Canada, to jointly explore the development of large-scale green hydrogen production systems connected to the electrical grid to offer a clean, sustainable, and affordable energy carrier.
