Caloric's leading technology for hydrogen generation by steam methane reforming has won the company a new contract in the Ukraine.

Caloric is to provide engineering and equipment for a new hydrogen plant and the corresponding distributed control system (DCS), using its steam methane reforming hydrogen production technology.

Technical assistance services during the erection, commissioning and start-up of this hydrogen plant will also be provided, while the unit will arrive pre-assembled at the customer’s plant site.

Pre-assembly will ensure 'significant scheduling and quality benefits for the client', according to Caloric. The hydrogen production plant will be shipped by mid 2010 and is expected to produce 2000 Nm³/h of hydrogen with 99,9995% purity.
