McPhy Energy wins the call for tenders issued by the German group Energiedienst
In the burgeoning renewable energy storage market, McPhy Energy won a third major project in 2016 to supply the German green energy firm Energiedienst with a hydrogen production solution and supports its deployment and operational use.
[La Motte-Fanjas, 12 January 2017]
McPhy Energy, which designs, manufactures and integrates hydrogen equipment for the energy and industrial sectors, has won the call for tenders issued by Energiedienst , the hydroelectricity specialist from Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
McPhy Energy will be supporting Energiedienst to set up a green hydrogen production facility at the site of its Wyhlen hydroelectric power plant, supplying it with a 1 MW hydrogen generation unit. The Group will also manage this facility’s maintenance under a long-term contract and will support Energiedienst to monetize its production for applications in industrial markets, as well as zero-emission mobility and injection into gas networks.
This project for a green hydrogen production facility, which will be delivered at the end of 2017, is part of the renewable energy storage program based on hydrogen technologies launched by the German foundation ZSW. It offers a response to the storage issues linked to the acceleration in the deployment of renewable energies, which are inherently intermittent, around the world. In Germany, renewable energies are expected to represent 35% of the electricity consumed by 2020(1).
Irene Knauber, member of the management of Energiedienst, emphasizes the project’s important contribution to energy transition and climate protection. “We plan to use the produced hydrogen primarily for fuel cell cars. With our green electricity coming from hydropower, we empower climate-neutral mobility besides electromobility. With McPhy we have an experienced partner for alkaline electrolysis on our side to produce environmental friendly hydrogen from green electricity”.
“Following the project in China’s Hebei Province and the GRTgaz project in France, the green hydrogen production facility for the Wyhlen hydroelectric power plant is the third call for tenders won in 2016 with our Power-to-Gas solutions. With this latest contract, McPhy Energy’s teams will have installed more than 13 MW of high-capacity electrolyzers, making it possible to produce more than 5 tons of green hydrogen each day. We would like to thank the teams from Energiedienst for placing their confidence and trust in us to support them on this project, which will help capitalize on surplus renewable electricity in Germany, which is number two worldwide for renewable energy”, concludes Pascal Mauberger, McPhy Energy’s Chairman and CEO.
