A modular approach to the storage of hydrogen

After the conversion of electricity into hydrogen through electrolysis, the McStore module stocks energy in solid form in complete security thanks to a low pressure protocol.

McStore, a unique solid-state storage technology

In its standard configuration, the McStore is a module composed of 12 cylinders offering a total storage capacity of 90 Nm3, or 8 kg of hydrogen. This storage solution for hydrogen integrates the thermal transfer circuit and thermal insulation.

The modularity of the McStore solution allows for a custom made design for large scale storage systems, thanks to a parallel connection to several storage modules.

Our products are CE marked, in full compliance with the EU directives [DESP 2014/68/EU ]

Performances

The performances of the storage depend on the pressure and the temperature of operation.

For example, the storage can:

  • Absorb an average flow rate of 6.6 Nm3/h over 10 hours when cooled at 20 °C and kept under a 20 barg hydrogen pressure
  • Release an average flow rate of 6.6 Nm3/h in 10 hours under an 8 barg hydrogen pressure when heated at a 90 °C HTF temperature

In this case, the storage capacity is about 66 Nm3 (6 kg) of hydrogen.
