Rheinmetall presents green hydrogen solutions
The concept is based on electrolysis technology, separating water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen.
Rheinmetall AG presents innovative, turnkey, mobile modular solutions for producing, storing and transporting CO2-free hydrogen.
The mobile solution offered by Group subsidiary Rheinmetall Denel Munition in South Africa assures climate-neutral energy security for stationary and mobile infrastructure in civil and industrial settings and for expedition and outdoor applications. Suitable for use in undeveloped terrain, it does not require an external power supply.
Moreover, because the system can simultaneously produce oxygen, it offers an all-encompassing solution for mobile field hospitals. Armed with this technology, Rheinmetall is not only expanding its civil sector operations as part of its hydrogen strategy: the Group’s plant engineering skills have put it on the path to becoming an energy producer.
Developed by Rheinmetall, all the components of this modular system can be combined into a fixed stationary system mode and mobile applications of various scopes. With larger mobile set-ups, such as field hospitals, the conversion of solar power, electrolysis, storage of the hydrogen produced, and fuel cell-based electrical generation takes place in separate containers. The necessary modules can all be concentrated in a single container, operated by solar panels for producing electricity as well as water, thus further enhancing its potential for mobile operations.
Mobile production of green hydrogen lends itself to industrial, private and expedition contexts as a means of generating power and heat. Byproducts such as oxygen can be used for their own requirements or sold into the global commodity market.
Production volume can be tailored to meet individual requirements. A container solution consisting of four standard sea containers can supply power for 30 to 40 households.
