Wind energy specialist Siemens Gamesa has chosen Green Hydrogen Systems (GHS) as its electrolysis partner for a wind-to-hydrogen project located in Denmark.
Scheduled to start producing hydrogen in January next year, the ambitious project will involve a three-megawatt Siemens wind turbine that will feed electricity into a GHS electrolyser, which will then use the electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
The hydrogen produced will be stored for subsequent distribution and used as a fuel for hydrogen-powered buses, taxis and cars. The oxygen will be released into the atmosphere.
Finn Daugaard Madsen, Innovation Manager for Power-2-X Applications at Siemens Gamesa, said, “We are excited to launch this pioneering project and to have chosen GHS as our electrolysis partner.”
“Their electrolyser will form a key component in the project, which are hope will lead to a very lean and cost-effective means of storing and utilising green energy from wind turbines.”
Niels-Arne Baden, CEO of Green Hydrogen Systems, said, “Europe is really banking on sustainable energy, and green hydrogen will and must play a vital role in the coming transition.”
“Siemens Gamesa, which has recently launched the world’s largest wind turbine, is an obvious leader in making wind-hydrogen production the next big power-to-x application. We are very proud to have been chosen as the electrolysis partner for this important and visionary project.”
