Denyo to develop hydrogen generators
It procures hydrogen engines for the generators from Kubota Corporation.
Denyo Co., Ltd. has started developing a dedicated hydrogen generator equipped with an industrial hydrogen engine pioneered by the Kubota Corporation.
This research and development project strives to release this generator to the market despite the challenges arising from related laws and regulations and the preparation of hydrogen infrastructure.
Hydrogen mixed combustion generator use technologies to limit carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions through hydrogen combustion in combination with other fuels, such as diesel and city gas. While a fuel-cell portable generator produces electric energy through a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen.
Easily portable generators are widely used to supply power on construction sites, at events, and anywhere else needing electricity. The most common type of generator generally uses a diesel engine. Recognizing the world’s push toward carbon neutrality, Denyo has been working to develop a hydrogen mixed combustion generator and a fuel-cell portable generator.
In its initiatives for carbon neutrality in engines, Kubota has been researching engines for industrial machines with greater fuel efficiency and applying carbon-free fuels such as hydrogen, bio, and synthetic.
Denyo started developing a dedicated hydrogen generator equipped with an industrial hydrogen engine pioneered by the Kubota Corporation, which eliminates CO2 emissions by using only hydrogen as a fuel. The development is progressing in a high-volume zone for portable generators by using a 45kVA diesel generator as a base. Denyo aims to release this dedicated hydrogen generator into the market early.
