Technip Energies launches green hydrogen production package – Video
French engineering and technology company, Technip Energies, and its affiliates, Kanfa and Inocean, have launched the GO.H2TM by T.EN suite of carbon-free solutions for green hydrogen production.
This suite of solutions – based on renewable power sources such as wind and solar – is said to be flexible with building blocks tailored to meet clients’ needs depending on substructures, hydrogen products, and derivatives produced, functionality, and locations.
The offshore facility can be a fixed structure or a floater, Technip Energies said. The green hydrogen is produced using a seawater desalination unit, followed by electrolysis, and exported to shore by a transport pipeline or offloaded on a carrier vessel.
For harsher environments, the substructure can be a spar or a semi-submersible. For high capacities and further from shore, the hydrogen is converted by adding an ammonia or a Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) unit and transferred to a floating storage and offloading vessel.
By adding hydrogen storage and fuel cells, the facility is said to ensure a stable and continuous power supply for electrified oil and gas facilities powered by wind turbines. For smaller capacities, the systems can be located on the floating offshore wind substructure or on the substation, according to technip Energies.
Intermittency management is said to be addressed from the design phase through adequate system architecture and technology bricks, power and hydrogen storage, and control strategies. In operations, an energy management system (EMS) is said to enable online production optimization through predictive control models.
”With more than 50 years of experience in hydrogen and an extensive expertise in offshore, we are proud to offer this innovative and flexible suite of solutions for the production of green hydrogen and its derivatives. GO.H2TM by T.EN illustrates our commitment to technology as a key driver to accelerate the journey towards a low-carbon future,” Laure Mandrou, SVP Carbon-Free Solutions of Technip Energies, said.
