Demand for large-scale hydrogen projects from industry is steadily increasing. As a pioneer in the industry and specialist in PEM electrolysis systems, H-TEC SYSTEMS has recognized the growing need and, through its new Modular Hydrogen Platform (MHP), has realized a scalable system for the industrial production of green hydrogen. The H-TEC SYSTEMS MHP electrolyzer is characterized by an outstanding system efficiency, high availability and proven maintenance concept. The new system ensures exceptionally low hydrogen production costs as well as stable operation.
Modular concept simplifies scaling and reduces costs
The highly standardized 10 MW blocks are based on the tried and tested S450 stack technology which has already proven itself in the market.
The new system is designed for particularly easy indoor installation by means of pre-assembled skids. Each 10 MW block is equipped with integrated process water treatment and an electric power supply. In addition, the system can be supplemented with fresh water and hydrogen treatment equipment as well as process heat recovery or oxygen utilization as and when required.
One of the most important features of the MHP is the high system efficiency of 77% (<51kWh/kg) at 30 bar pressure, which is far above the standard values.
Redundancy concept guarantees system reliability
In the event of a stack failure within a 10 MW block as well as scheduled maintenance or inspections, a defined part of the installation can be shut down while the rest of the electrolyzer continues to operate. Through this concept, the systems can achieve almost full performance even in the event of a fault, which represents crucial added value for customers based in the renewable energy and industrial sectors.
“H-TEC SYSTEMS has been a leading manufacturer of electrolyzers for years and we are extremely pleased to be able to bring our experience and expertise now also to the large-scale facility market”, said Jonas Wahl, Director Product Management at H-TEC SYSTEMS.
“For the strategic conceptualization of the Modular Hydrogen Platform, we focused on two areas that are of crucial relevance for our customers: efficiency and availability. As a result, our new PEM electrolyzer is the most efficient on the market to date. Through our all-encompassing range of services, we ensure our customers a high level of system availability over the entire life cycle. In this way, the production costs of hydrogen can be significantly reduced. We are confident that the Modular Hydrogen Platform will improve the way hydrogen is made and play a key role in the transition to clean energy.”
