A cogeneration plant that runs on pure hydrogen
The plant provides an output of 115 kilowatts of electricity and 129 kilowatts of thermal energy. It is delivered as a turnkey container ready for connection and is scheduled to be in operation since April.
The highlight of this hydrogen CHP is that it can run on pure hydrogen without any fossil fuels. However, 2G Energy say it can also be operated on a mixture of hydrogen and natural gas, as well as pure natural gas. This increases the operating flexibility.
