Caloric has announced that it has won the contract for another hydrogen generation plant in France, providing engineering, procurement and commissioning services for the plant and corresponding distributed control system (DCS).

Using Caloric’s HC steam methane reforming (SMR) hydrogen production technology, the company will provide technical assistance services during the construction, commissioning and start-up of the hydrogen plant.

Specially designed for the production of hydrogen, the modularised unit will be pre-assembled before arriving at the customer’s plant site.

The facility will deliver significant scheduling benefits for the client by specialised assembly activities, from the final construction site to the earlier workshop phase.

According to Caloric, it is anticipated that the hydrogen production plant will be operational by the end of 2009 and will produce 2,200 Nm³/h hydrogen.
