ITM Power has announced that it will be showcasing a series of large scale electrolyser configurations up to 100MW in size at HANNOVER MESSE 2017. This is in response to utility and oil and gas industry demand for larger scale industrial installations.
ITM Power has sold a number of MW scale plants over the last year and is now responding to enquires for much larger plant for bus and heavy goods vehicle refuelling stations in the 1MW to 10MW range and, increasingly, industrial applications ranging from Power-to-Gas, refineries and steel making in the 10MW to 100MW range.
The modular design of ITM Power’s electrolyser systems enables easy scale up. The use of integrated modules enables a wide customer offering based on the Company’s existing core PEM stack technology.
This approach maintains standardisation for manufacture while minimising development and design time when scaling up. The advantages of compact size, fast response time, high operating efficiency and high pressure are maintained. This approach serves the requirements of the current electrolyser market, while providing a route to access growing markets in the multi MW scale.
The designs that will be showcased include the new 2.2MW unit which is at the heart of the 10, 30, 60 and 100MW designs created for this new market demand.
HANNOVER MESSE is a leading industrial tradeshow and the largest capital goods exhibition in the world.
