Rostock-Laage – APEX Energy Teterow GmbH laid the foundation stone for the hydrogen power plant under construction by commissioning the 2G cogeneration plant. The innovative H2-CHP enables operation with pure hydrogen and serves as the heart of the 2 MW plant, the opening of which is planned for June 12.
At its location in Rostock-Laage, within sight of the airport, APEX Energy operates the hydrogen center in northern Germany. Europe’s largest grid-connected hydrogen plant will go into operation there in June and supply the entire site with CO2-neutral energy.
Mathias Hehmann, the managing partner of APEX Energy Teterow GmbH, describes the system as an important milestone for emission-free future-oriented energy supply: “As a certified full-service specialist, we deliver tailor-made system solutions for the energy of tomorrow. For industry and commerce, housing associations, for the temporary storage of balancing energy, for mobility solutions or for connecting remote locations – hydrogen is the driver for a CO2-neutral future. ”
The corona crisis clearly shows us the connections between our daily business and pollution. Suddenly there are fish in the canals of Venice and the smog-covered skylines of the megacities shine in new splendor. It is all the more important that we can also manifest these crisis-related positive effects in the long term by switching to environmentally friendly energy solutions. APEX Energy is leading the way here and is sticking to its ambitious growth targets despite Corona.
The APEX Group will celebrates its 20th anniversary with the opening of the APEX hydrogen plant in Rostock-Laage on June 12th, 2020. In the expanded stage, the hydrogen system will then have an electrolysis capacity of 2 MW, its own hydrogen storage system, a fuel cell with 100 kW electrical output and a 115 kW H2 cogeneration unit as well as battery storage with 1 MWh capacity. A hydrogen filling station rounds off the system concept.
