€4.5m Power-to-gas plant and hydrogen station opens in Brunsbüttel

A €4.5m plant to integrate green hydrogen into Schleswig-Holstein’s natural gas network and a new hydrogen refuelling station have opened in Brunsbüttel – a first for the German state.

Located at Covestro Deutschland’s site, Wind2Gas Energy is the operator of the electrolysis plant, which also supplies the H2 Mobility hydrogen fuelling station with green hydrogen.

Before the hydrogen produced in the power-to-gas plant is fed into the natural gas grid, it is tested in the measuring section to see if it meets the purity and moisture requirements. The gas volume of the hydrogen is also measured.

The hydrogen is then compressed, in two compressors, to the high-pressure natural gas pipeline’s network pressure and fed into it. This redundant design guarantees the system’s requisite 96% availability.
