Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser has ordered three SIAD MI compressors to be combined with a new 20MW electrolysis plant that will supply the Ovako rolling mill in Hofors, Sweden.
The plant is the first in the world to use hydrogen to heat steel before hot forming. The gas, which is generated by fossil-free electricity, will replace the propane currently used to power the furnaces. This concept has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for Ovako’s total steel operations by 50%.
SIAD MI’s supply, which consists of two reciprocating compressors for green hydrogen (model HMS4-4) and one reciprocating compressor for green oxygen (model MS3-3), is the first order included in the framework agreement between SIAD MI and Nel for the supply of compression equipment to support the electrolysers produced by the Norwegian company (click here).
The two hydrogen compressors, built with oil-free technology, have been engineered to handle process gas automatically at low pressures and variable flow rates, ensuring safety, operational continuity and energy savings. The layout, tailored to the customer’s specific needs, has been optimised to offer the best accessibility without sacrificing any performance.
