HyGear, gas generation specialist, has completed the delivery and installation of an onsite hydrogen (H2) generation system for Saint-Gobain, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of flat glass.
HyGear installed two of its Hy.GEN 50 systems at Saint-Gobain’s glass production facility in L’Arboc, Spain.
The technology produces H2 by converting natural gas with steam methane reforming which offers a more reliable and cost-effective alternative to conventional supply methods.
The agreement also consists of additional storage banks for backup supply and peak consumption periods. Financial details were not disclosed.
The Netherlands-based business initially signed the H2 supply contract with Saint-Gobain in August 2016. Saint-Gobain is understood to be currently evaluating whether to transform other operations worldwide to such onsite supply as well.
