Übach-Palenberg – The NEUMAN & ESSER GROUP (NEA) is transforming its company portfolio. The leading manufacturer of piston and diaphragm compressors is transforming itself into a solution provider for sustainable energy systems.
To this end, the “ENERGY SOLUTIONS” business unit has been implemented and expanded. Along the hydrogen value chain, it combines know-how from compressor technology with extended products such as electrolysers and services for planning, project planning, and marketing of hydrogen and green gases. This expansion further demonstrates how NEA supports the current transformation of the fossil fuel-based oil & gas sector to a sustainable hydrogen economy with green hydrogen.
“In order to drive the decarbonization of the various sectors, we have expanded our product portfolio to include key components in the value chain,” explains Stefanie Peters, managing partner of the NEA GROUP and member of the National Hydrogen Council of the German Federal Government. “The economy needs a technically optimized solution from the generation of climate-neutral hydrogen to transport, storage, and application, which we offer with our ENERGY SOLUTIONS.”
NEA has become the technology leader for compressor systems that are used to compress processed gas, natural gas, and technical gases. Customers were and are not only from the chemical and petrochemical industry but also from renewable energies. The integration of HOFER high-pressure technology into the NEA GROUP strengthened its market position as a compressor manufacturer. Systems are sold worldwide that compress gases with a pressure of up to 5,000 bar oil-free and leak-free.
NEA initiated the expansion of the new ENERGY SOLUTIONS business unit with strategic investments and acquisitions in the field of alternative energy sources. New experts joined the “NEA family” for mobility with fuel cell drives (AEDS – AE Driven Solutions GmbH), for biogas and biomethane (ARCANUM Energy Systems GmbH & Co. KG) for electrolysis systems (HYTRON Energy & Gas), and for climate-neutral fuels so-called e-fuels (INFINIUM). The newly founded company NEA GREEN GmbH & Co. KG bundles the core know-how of the group of companies around green gases from the first concept and advice including feasibility studies through project development to the implementation of H2 systems and their sales support.
The industry can therefore benefit from NEA’s comprehensive know-how for the production, storage, and transport of green hydrogen. NEA has suitable solutions for all questions regarding hydrogen production and use, i.e. H” filling statin systems, storage and transport as well as the refinement of green gases into sustainable fuels. NEA offers ENERGY SOLUTIONS from a single source and accompanies the shapers of the hydrogen economy from their initial idea through the entire life cycle of the systems.
