Commissioning of an industrial production unit of renewable hydrogen in Grenoble
• An ENGIE Cofely installation illustrating the potential of the carbon-free hydrogen, produced using electrolysis, as a raw material in industry
• Three McPhy electrolyzers and two storage modules perfectly suited to meeting the significant increase in the hydrogen requirements of the Utilities Service Unit (PUS)
• The PUS’s production performance and energy independence guaranteed while reducing its environmental footprint
La Motte-Fanjas, June 27, 2018 at 5:45pm – McPhy (Euronext Paris Compartment C: MCPHY, FR0011742329) a specialist in hydrogen production, storage and distribution equipment, congratulates ENGIE Cofely on commissioning its industrial production unit of renewable hydrogen at its Utilities Service Unit in Grenoble. For this project, which illustrates the potential of carbon-free hydrogen produced using electrolysis as a raw material in industry, the three production units and two storage modules were supplied by McPhy.
The commissioning of the installation fits perfectly with the French ministry’s strategic plan to support the roll-out of carbon-free hydrogen and make France the world leader in the field.
Pascal Mauberger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of McPhy said: “We congratulate ENGIE Cofely on completing this installation. It provides a compelling demonstration of the potential of carbon-free hydrogen produced using electrolysis as a raw material in industry. The commissioning of the installation fits perfectly with the plan announced on 1 June by France’s minister for ecological and inclusive transition Nicolas Hulot to support the roll-out of carbon-free hydrogen and make France the world leader in the field. One of the plan’s aims is to generate 10% of industrial carbon-free hydrogen by 2023 and 20% to 40% by 2028. We wish to thank ENGIE Cofely and Linde Electronics for the confidence they have placed in us by selecting our technologies.”
An installation demonstrating the potential of the carbon-free hydrogen produced using electrolysis for industry
The hydrogen platform, which is located on the CEA Minatec site at the heart of Grenoble’s science cluster, is operated by ENGIE Cofely.
The three electrolyzers will be used specifically for CEA/LETI’s industrial processes and for GEG’s (Gaz Électricité Grenoble / in the framework of the HyWay project) zero-emission mobility solutions.
As part of this project with its industrial aims, McPhy’s electrolysis solution will provide a nominal flow rate of 30 Nm3/h and a peak flow rate of 50 Nm3/h.
