ULSAN, South Korea–(Enterprise WIRE)–INNIO today declared that Hyosung Heavy Industries (Hyosung) has selected INNIO Jenbacher ‘Ready for Hydrogen’ motor know-how for the first pilot energy plant project in APAC that will be fueled by 100% hydrogen. The pilot hydrogen power plant will be designed at the Hyosung Chemical Yongyeon Plant in Ulsan, South Korea, placing a benchmark by turning into the 1st 100% hydrogen ability plant to be operated in the region. It will operate on hydrogen created as a byproduct at the chemical plant that is typically sold off to an industrial gas organization. The challenge is envisioned to accomplish commercial operation in 3Q 2022 and complete the demonstration by conclude of 2022.
“INNIO has based its method on hydrogen starting to be a driver of the vitality transition, as it is uniquely positioned to form a lower- by no-carbon energy sector. INNIO introduced its ‘Completely ready for Hydrogen’ portfolio to meet up with customers’ needs for sustainable options, this sort of as at Hyosung, to set up hydrogen-centered electrical power generation. We are happy to be their hydrogen engine engineering lover of option and to build the first 100% hydrogen ability plant in APAC,” reported Olaf Berlien, president and CEO of INNIO. “We will continue on our relentless focus to deliver INNIO systems and companies that will assist our clients to decrease their carbon footprint down to zero.”
“Hyosung is striving to improve its influence on local climate change by embracing the global electricity changeover. We have joined forces with INNIO to assist our efforts to lower carbon emissions while checking out professional and sustainable prospects connected with our hydrogen byproduct generation,” commented Park Jeong-Ha, Standard Manager at Hyosung. “Our weather modify response tactics have set the intention of decreasing emissions and vitality consumption even though growing electricity effectiveness. INNIO Jenbacher gives the economical and proven engineering that assists us fulfill this objective.”
As a shaper of a low-carbon economy, INNIO is planning for a safe, very affordable, and local weather-neutral energy foreseeable future for absolutely everyone. The pilot electric power plant utilizing INNIO Jenbacher technological know-how, will be the next electricity plant in the 1-MW selection that can be fueled with 100% hydrogen. INNIO is a hydrogen pioneer for a lot more than 20 several years, when the very first Jenbacher 150-kilowatt pilot motor ran on 100 p.c hydrogen at a demonstration plant in northern Germany. Two decades later, in 2020, soon after a variety of additional demonstration assignments, INNIO and HanseWerk Natur shown the world’s 1st hydrogen engine employing variable hydrogen and normal fuel mixtures up to 100% hydrogen on an INNIO Jenbacher motor. The collaboration with Hyosung now marks a more milestone for INNIO to aid generate the electricity changeover.
