Danish clean fuels provider Everfuel A/S (FRA:0HR) and turbine maker Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) said today that they have started distributing green hydrogen to fuelling stations in Denmark as part of a pilot project to set up a wind power-based electrolysis.
The green hydrogen is being extracted from an 400-kW electrolyser stack powered by a single Siemens Gamesa SWT 3.0-113 DD 3-MW onshore wind turbine installed in the Danish town of Brande.
Siemens Gamesa operates a hydrogen test site in Brande, as well as other facilities, while Everfuel’s headquarters is in the nearby town of Herning.
The electrolysis system is operating in island mode, but it can be hooked to the grid. Siemens Gamesa said it is using the Brande Hydrogen site to explore whether integrating battery storage into the system can contribute to grid stability.
The first hydrogen was produced as part of the testing and commissioning phase, the companies said. The hydrogen is now being distributed to Everfuel’s hydrogen refuelling stations in Denmark and is used by zero-emission vehicles such as fuel-cell taxis.
The electrolyser for the Brande project was supplied by Denmark’s Green Hydrogen Systems A/S (CPH:GREENH).
