WindH2 Hydrogen Project Commissioned In Germany

The title of this post, is the same as that as this article on Chemical Engineering.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Salzgitter AG, Avacon and Linde have taken an important step on the path to decarbonizing the steel industry. With the commissioning of “Wind Hydrogen Salzgitter – WindH2”, Germany’s only cross-sector project, green hydrogen will be produced in future with electricity generated by wind power on the site of the steelworks in Salzgitter.

This sentence describes the hydrogen production.

Avacon, a member of the E.ON Group, operates seven newly built wind turbines with an output totaling 30 megawatts on the premises of Salzgitter AG. Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH has installed two Siemens 1.25 megawatt PEM electrolyzer units on its plant site that are capable of producing around 450 m3 per hour of ultra pure hydrogen.

It appears that Salzgitter AG are initially using hydrogen to cut their carbon footprint.

To get an impression of the size of the steelworks, look at this Google Map.

Note that if you click on the map to show it in a large scale, stahl is German for steel.

The article is certainly worth a read.
