H-Tec to deliver electrolysers for hydrogen production in Austria
This is an important step regarding the implementation of the company's sustainable hydrogen product strategy whose framework has ensured that all new Jenbacher plants are considered to be "Ready for H2". From 2025 onwards, the entire product line of Jenbacher engines is expected to be rolled out for operation powered with 100% hydrogen. At the same time, the supply of green hydrogen at the Jenbach plant is a milestone on the way to achieving net zero on site.
The two-megawatt containerized facility will be installed on the premises of a power plant in Tyrol. The green hydrogen produced on site and will then be transported in a pipeline from the TINEXT compressor and storage terminal to INNIO's main production plant in Jenbach.
900 kilos of ultrapure green hydrogen per day
With a system efficiency of 74%, the two ME450 PEM electrolysers produce a total of up to 900 kilograms of green hydrogen per day. This amount is sufficient to operate the two-megawatt Jenbacher H2 engine test stand. Thanks to an integrated hydrogen treatment process in the electrolysers, the ultrapure green hydrogen can be used directly to operate the gas engines.
This means that the company headquarters can be supplied with green electricity and heat from green hydrogen in addition to photovoltaics, batteries and hydropower. In its Innio360 Energy Lab in Jenbach, Innio demonstrates just how the energy transformation of an industrial company functions.
