Measuring two metres in diameter and weighing more than 80 tonnes, the electrolyser is expected to have an output of 1,100 Nm3/h of hydrogen at normal current density. This equals 100 kg of pure hydrogen per hour, which will set a new standard for the industry, according to HydrogenPro. The test aims to verify that the electrolyser produces the expected amount of gas per unit of time. During the test, the company will also use fluctuating electricity input from renewable energy sources and test several other parameters.
Erik Christian Bolstad, CCO of HydrogenPro, said: “This project is a critical milestone for large, green hydrogen projects. It requires substantial planning, rigging and the right equipment. This project is important to facilitate larger, green hydrogen projects, reducing carbon footprints and costs.”
