Siemens Gamesa to develop “island mode” hydrogen project

Siemens Gamesa has today (3rd Dec) unveiled plans to develop what it believes to be the world’s first project capable of producing green hydrogen directly from wind, in “island mode”.

To be located in Denmark, the pilot includes a 3 MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbine owned by local partner Uhre Windpower, that will produce clean electricity to power a 400kW electrolyser.

The machine will then split the water into oxygen and hydrogen, so that the hydrogen can be stored and later delivered to customers in the mobility sector, as part of a new partnership with Everfuel, who will distribute the hydrogen to refuelling stations across Denmark.

When fully operational, the project’s single turbine will produce enough hydrogen to fuel around 50-70 taxis each day. Carbon-free hydrogen, derived from low-cost, competitive wind power, can be stored and transported for use on demand.
