Siemens Make Offshore Wind Turbine for Hydrogen

In line with expanding renewable hydrogen, the two companies of Siemens Gamesa Renewable and Siemens Energy AG have planned to make offshore wind turbine to generate the gas through electrolysis. Siemens Energy, shares 67% of Siemens Gamesa, which is the largest supplier of offshore wind turbines in the world. Allocating $146 million for the project, the companies have been addressing big industries that play a role in emissions surge such as refineries, and chemical factories since mid-2020s. President/CEO at Siemens Energy Inc., Christian Bruch, said perhaps there are no other companies that would bring together wind power, electrolysis and high voltage system at the offshore platform only in one place. Aiming to adjust water electrolysis technology in offshore turbines, they will go ahead with green hydrogen production; in the process, water is broken down into 2 components via electricity generated by wind and solar energies.

BP and Orsted to Co-op in Green Hydrogen Project

BP, the London-based multinational oil and gas company, has signed an accord with Orsted, the Fredericia-based power company, for developing a massive renewable hydrogen project in Germany. The plan includes generation of a 50-MW electrolyzer and "associated infrastructure" in a refinery northwest of Germany. Green hydrogen is generated by water electrolysis and the required electricity is supplied through energy sources such as wind or sun. The power is expected to be generated through an offshore wind farm. Martin Neubert, the Executive Vice President in Orsted, said refineries consume plenty of hydrogen in their operations. According to him, renewable hydrogen is a better alternative for fossil-based hydrogen (presently used in refineries) and will diminish generation of CO2. The plan will be materialized by 2024.

India Launches Green Hydrogen Production

India’s green hydrogen initiative has been agreed upon by Fusion Fuel Green and BGR Energy Systems. They will establish related facilities in Tamil Nadu, a south Indian state, this year. The aim is to expand green hydrogen plan in the country. Fusion Fuel Green, with offices in Portugal and Ireland, will provide Tamil Nadu’s plant with technology to produce hydrogen from solar energy. The plant will apply the generated hydrogen in heavy industrial processes. Blue hydrogen, despite its green version, comes from hazardous fossil fuels. Highly-expensive to generate, the green hydrogen supplied only 0.1% of the hydrogen produced in the world in the last year, as stated by Wood Mackenzie. India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, talked of starting a “National Hydrogen Energy Mission” last year. The mission to produce hydrogen from renewable energy resources is underway in the years 2021 to 2022. Samira H.
