Consortium to develop “world’s first” integrated power-to-X-to-power hydrogen gas turbine

With the HYFLEXPOWER project, a new consortium has formed to develop the world’s first industrial-scale power-to-X-to-power demonstrator with an advanced hydrogen turbine located at Smurfit Kappa PRF’s site in Saillat-sur-Vienne, France.

The project is formed of Engine Solutions, Siemens Gas and Power, Centrax, Arttic, German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and four European universities, and is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Framework Program for Research and Innovation.

Together, the group hopes to prove that hydrogen can be produced and stored from renewable electricity and then added with up to 100% to the natural gas currently used with combined heat and power plants.

Within the HYFLEXPOWER project it will be demonstrated that renewable hydrogen can serve as a flexible means of storing energy which can then be used to power a high-power industrial turbine.
