Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation has installed its pure hydrogen fuel cell system, the H2Rex™, at Michinoeki-Namie in Fukushima Prefecture.
The system will supply the required electric power and heat simultaneously by using hydrogen supplied by the Fukushima Hydrogen Energy Research Field (FH2R) which started-up in July.
Due to be operating in October, H2Rex™ is a clean energy solution that uses hydrogen as fuel for CO2-free electricity generation and can boot up and start generating electricity in only about five minutes.
The unit that has been installed at Michinoeki-Namie is 3.5kW and generates electricity to power lights and air conditioning for part of the facilities, as well as generates heat to make hot water for hand washing.
