Herning, Denmark – Everfuel A/S has signed an agreement with Siemens Gamesa for the distribution of green hydrogen for zero-emission mobility in Denmark.
The green hydrogen will be produced by a Siemens Gamesa wind turbine connected to an electrolyzer with the ability to operate in ‘island mode’ – driving an electrolysis unit with no link to the electricity grid. The pilot project in Brande, Western Denmark, is expected to be operational from early 2021.
“This is a significant milestone for Everfuel. It will be the first time we connect the hydrogen value chain from renewable energy production and electrolysis through distribution on our own high-capacity hydrogen trailers and delivery to our fueling stations. This is our first-in-line proof of commercialization of a true green hydrogen value chain,” says Jacob Krogsgaard, the CEO and founder of Everfuel.
Green hydrogen, derived from low-cost, competitive wind power, can be stored and transported for use on demand. The hydrogen produced by Siemens Gamesa will be distributed to hydrogen stations in Denmark, enabling a growing number of zero-emission vehicles, such as fuel cell taxis, to operate efficiently on a 100% green fuel supply.
The Siemens Gamesa pilot project includes a 3-megawatt wind turbine, which will supply clean electricity to power a 400-kilowatt electrolyzer, splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen on a flexible basis. The project is close to obtaining final permits, with initial test runs and first hydrogen production expected to start already in early 2021. When fully operational, the project’s electrolyser can produce enough hydrogen to fuel the equivalent of 50-70 taxis.
