ITM Power has won a competitive tender for the sale of a rapid response PEM Power-to-Gas electrolyser system from RWE Deutschland AG.

The electrolyser system is one of ITM Power’s CE marked HGas platforms, which has been widely demonstrated in a Power-to-Gas installation in Frankfurt. The system incorporates PEM stacks operating under differential pressure. As with all ITM Power’s HGas platforms, the system has the ability to self-pressurise, operate via remote control and modulate rapidly in response to demand. The system is packaged in a 20-foot ISO container for use outdoors. ITM Power will be supplying the plant with a two year warranty and ITM Power is supplying a three year after sales support contract.

As part of the company’s drive to increase productivity, delivery timescales have also been significantly reduced. The full contract value will be recognised in the ITM financial year ending April 2015.

It is noted that this deployment will use a higher current density permitting a higher hydrogen output per stack. System efficiency is also increased by simplification of the balance of plant. Further information regarding the sale will be provided in the New Year as appropriate.

Dr. Graham Cooley, CEO, ITM Power, commented, “This sale is our second significant Power-to-Gas order in an important strategic territory for this technology.”
