H-TEC SYSTEMS presents a modular hydrogen electrolyzer for large-scale projects
10 MW blocks of the Modular Hydrogen Platform (MHP) can be combined into systems with an electrolysis performance of 100 MW and more.
The overall system efficiency of 77 percent along with high system availability thus results in low hydrogen costs.
Demand for large-scale hydrogen projects from industry is steadily increasing. As a pioneer in the industry and specialist in PEM electrolysis systems, H-TEC SYSTEMS has duly recognized the growing need and, through its new Modular Hydrogen Platform (MHP), has realized a scalable system for the industrial production of green hydrogen.
The standardized blocks each have an electrolysis performance of 10 MW and can be combined into systems with an electrolysis power output of 100 MW and more. The H-TEC SYSTEMS MHP electrolyzer offers outstanding system efficiency, high availability and a proven maintenance concept. The new system ensures exceptionally low hydrogen production costs as well as stable operation.
The highly standardized 10 MW blocks from H-TEC SYSTEMS are based on the tried and tested S450 stack technology which has already proven itself in the market.
The new system is designed for particularly easy indoor installation by means of pre-assembled skids. Each 10 MW block is equipped with integrated process water treatment and an electric power supply. In addition, the system can be supplemented with fresh water and hydrogen treatment equipment as well as process heat recovery or oxygen utilization as and when required.
One of the most important features of the MHP is the high system efficiency of 77 percent (<51kWh/kg) at 30 bar pressure which is far above the standard values.
Aside from the efficiency aspect, the system availability of an electrolyzer plays a decisive role. It is here that the MHP offers a unique redundancy concept. In the event of a stack failure within a 10 MW block as well as scheduled maintenance or inspections, a defined part of the installation can be shut down while the rest of the electrolyzer continues to operate. Through this concept, the systems can achieve almost full performance even in the event of a fault which represents crucial added value for customers based in the renewable energy and industrial sectors.
