HYBRIT begins testing of pilot rock cavern hydrogen storage

The landmark HYBRIT pilot rock cavern hydrogen storage facility in Luleå, Sweden, operated by SSAB, LKAB, and Vattenfall is now in undergoing testing

Commencing a two-year test period, set to conclude in 2024, the companies say it comes as an important step forward in the development of the overall value chain for fossil-free iron and steel production.

H2 View understands, following the facility’s inauguration in June this year (2022), pressure tests were conducted, confirming its mechanical stability and pressure capacity, which then saw it filled with hydrogen gas, reaching a maximum operating pressure of 250 bar.
