Saipem has launched a new technological solution to produce green hydrogen and support its clients in the energy transition.
Launched today (July 19), SUISO combines various renewable energy sources such as floating wind, floating solar and marine energy in a single system.
The system powers, together or individually, electrolysers installed on existing offshore platforms for the production of green hydrogen.
On the launch, Francesco Caio, CEO of Saipem, said, “The SUISO brand is an example of Saipem’s ability to find innovative and sustainable solutions to lead its clients in the energy transition.
“The solution is adaptable to the changing characteristics of the marine sites and to the different production needs.
He continued, “The know-how gained in the design and execution of infrastructures and technologically advanced plants allows Saipem to cover the green hydrogen production value chain and to be a strategic partner in the path towards a net zero economy”.
As well as responding to the growing demand for green hydrogen production, the solution allows the conversion of oil and gas offshore facilities which have now reached the end of their life cycle.
Saipem said the oxygen resulting from this process can be used in various areas such as aquaculture or seaweed production.
SUISO will find its first application in the AGNES project, the offshore energy hub that Saipem, in partnership with QINT’X, intends to build off the Adriatic coast of Ravenna.
