Hydrogenics deploys 2MW storage system for E.ON

28 Dec 2012

Canadian fuel cell specialist Hydrogenics has completed installation of a 2MW power-to-gas storage system for German utility E.ON.

The solution is located in Falkenhagen, Germany, and converts excess power in the grid to hydrogen, which is then stored in the country’s natural gas pipeline network.

It will be fully commissioned in early 2013, with Hydrogenics providing maintenance services at the site for an initial five-years.

Daryl Wilson, president and CEO of Hydrogenics, said, ‘We are very pleased to see this energy storage system delivered on time and ready for commissioning. The hydrogen produced by our E.ON equipment in Falkenhagen will be injected into the natural gas pipeline, making it an effective storage system for the surplus electrical power currently generated from renewable resources in the region.

‘Over a 24 hour period the facility will be able to store over 30 MWh of energy, providing critical electrical grid support. We expect to see many more such projects in the future that leverage our leading position in the design, manufacture and installation of large-scale electrolysis systems.’

Earlier this month Hydrogenics secured an order from its US partner CommScope, bringing sales in 2012 to more than $100m.
