GeoPura’s Construction World First

On the GeoPura web site there is a case study, which is entitled Construction World First.

These two paragraphs outline what was done.

Working in partnership with Siemens Energy our hydrogen fuel cell system, has provided off grid power and heat to National Grid’s UK Viking Link construction site.

The fuel cell system removes the need for diesel generators and provides innovative, sustainable, low carbon energy to the Viking Link interconnector project site.

The interesting thing, is that the heat that the hydrogen fuel cell gives out is collected and used to heat the remote site.

This last paragraph, explains the need for off grid power.

Off grid power is needed as this site didn’t have a grid connection for at least six to eight months, and the fuel cell system provided enough heat and power for the construction village during that time, removing the need for diesel generators.

There’s more in this Siemens Energy report.
