Green hydrogen powers three-month maintenance outage at Uniper power plant in UK

A GeoPura hydrogen-powered generator has powered Uniper’s Cottam Development Centre (CDC) natural gas plant in the UK during a three-month maintenance outage.

Commissioned by Uniper and utilised by the maintenance contractor, Siemens Energy, GeoPura’s 250kW Hydrogen Power Unit (HPU) was used to power the outage village, including welfare facilities, and EV charging for all electric vehicles on site, H2 View understands.

According to GeoPura, the maintenance outage at its CDC power station is the first to have been powered by green hydrogen in this way. With the 445MW natural gas power plant undergoing routine maintenance outages every four to five years, the recent outage has proved the case for hydrogen-powered back-up power.

GeoPura says the HPU was fuelled using green hydrogen produced by renewable energy from a biomass facility nearby.
