APEX Energy Teterow GmbH in Rostock-Laage has awarded 2G Energy AG in Heek with an order for a highly innovative hydrogen combined heat and power unit (H2-CHP). The unit is going to be operated with hydrogen generated from renewable energy. The CHP-unit agenitor 404c H2 by 2G Energy has an electrical output of 115kW (129 kW thermal). It is delivered as a ready-to-connect container solution and is expected to be in operation by April 2020.
The H2-CHP enables - unlike the blending of hydrogen to the natural gas grid with reconversion via conventional CHPs that was often used until now - an operation with pure hydrogen without any fossil fuels. In order to increase the operational flexibility an operation with a hydrogen/natural gas mixture as well as a pure natural gas operation is basically also possible.
At the location in Rostock-Laage directly next to the airport APEX Energy operates the Hydrogen Competence Center Northern Germany. In 2020 APEX, in collaboration with a local partner, will put the largest network connected hydrogen plant in Europe into operation and ensures supply with CO2 neutral energy to the whole site. Mr Mathias Hehmann, managing director of APEX Energy Teterow GmbH considers hydrogen combined heat and power plans to be an important component for an environmentally sound energy supply of the future: “We are a certified full-service specialist company and supply tailor-made system solutions for the energy of tomorrow. For industry and trade, housing associations, as intermediate storage of balancing energy, mobility solutions or linking to locations remote from the grid – hydrogen is the driving force for an emission-free future. The combined generation of electricity and heat in the H2-CHP is an important element in the process”.
APEX Energy applies CHP for generating electricity and heat for own use at the location Rostock-Laage. At the plant APEXIS energy storage systems are manufactured. The operation of these requires hydrogen produced by means of an electrolyser. Electricity from photovoltaic and wind energy systems is the basis for the generation of hydrogen. The APEXIS storage systems were designed as modular systems and enable a secure and comfortable storage at a place chosen by the customer. The standard system is capable of handling a pressure of 60 bar and is equipped with market-leading permeability and patented connection technology.
