ISPT releases report on safety in large-scale green hydrogen plants

The Institute for Sustainable Process Technology (ISPT) has published a report to raise awareness about safety level requirements for large-scale green hydrogen production, with a focus on fire and explosion risks related to the combination of oxygen and hydrogen in equipment and buildings.

According to the ISPT, this report marks the initial step towards establishing a uniform and consistent risk assessment methodology for large-scale green hydrogen plants. The institute’s goal is to help the industry and stakeholders understand explosion risks and enable them to create safe designs for large-scale water electrolysis systems.

The report summarises the results of a year-long project involving extensive cooperation with safety experts from HyCC, Ørsted, Shell, Yara, DNV, Royal HaskoningDHV and TNO. The ISPT managed this process and engaged electrolyser suppliers in interviews to incorporate their insights and feedback into the project results.

The 58-page report is freely available and can be downloaded via this link.
