Hydrogenics awarded contract to provide electrolysers to Doosan Babcock for Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Hydrogenics Corporation has announced that it has been awarded a contract by Doosan Babcock Limited to install two of its HySTAT®100 electrolysers, along with compression and storage equipment, at the new Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) in Aberdeen, Scotland.
The Hydrogenics electrolysers will convert fluctuating power – up to 1MW– into 20kg of hydrogen (H2) per hour, at the highest efficiency possible, complementing the combined heat and power natural gas fuel cell application installed at the AECC.
Hydrogenics expects to deliver the electrolysers in late 2017, providing over 300kg of H2 storage capacity; additional terms were not disclosed.
Daryl Wilson President and CEO of Hydrogenics commented, “We are very pleased to enter into this contract with Doosan Babcock to complement their system in Aberdeen.”
“Such awards, combined with our existing H2 fueling infrastructure activities there, illustrate our continued support for the city as a world leader in the development of the H2 economy, reducing carbon emissions for generations to come,” Wilson added.
The H2 produced by the HySTAT electrolysers will be suitable for use across a wide range of applications such as fuel for vehicles, energy storage, and the most demanding industrial processes.
