GKN Powder Metallurgy is launching a new dedicated green hydrogen unit, GKN Hydrogen, that will look to drive green hydrogen storage technology solutions based on metal hyrides.
The new dedicated green hydrogen unit is expected to be launched at a virtual market launch event on the 11th of May 2021.
GKN Hydrogen’s 100% recyclable product suite has been developed and refined over the last few years to become one of the most reliable and secure hydrogen storage solutions on the market, says the company.
The robust systems generate green hydrogen from fluctuating renewable energy sources, storing it compactly and safely in metal hyride over long periods of time.
When it is need, the green hydrogen can then be used directly or converted back into electricity and heat for a variety of applications.
The scalable system design allows for maximum versatility, from emergency power backup and off-grid energy supply to residential housing, maritime transport and large-scale industry.
Peter Oberparleiter, CEO of GKN Powder Metallurgy, said, “GKN Hydrogen is an incredibly exciting venture that will play a key role at the forefront of the energy transition.
“Using a state-of-the-art technology with far-reaching implications and extensive scope for development, we are helping to solve the issue of hydrogen storage and provide a clean energy for all that is green, safe and compact.”
