💬 TECNIMONT and NEXTCHEM (MAIRE) inaugurate GAIL’s first green hydrogen plant in Vijaipur, India. 🌱🇮🇳

🌍🔋 #hydrogen #renewableenergy #sustainability #Tecnimont #Nextchem #GAIL #India.

📅 The project, awarded in May 2022 and implemented by Tecnimont Private Limited in collaboration with NEXTCHEM (Sustainable Technology Solutions), marks a significant step in the search for sustainable energy solutions in India. The plant will produce 4.3 tons per day of green hydrogen from a 10-megawatt electrolyzer, making state-owned gas utility GAIL the first Indian company to initiate large-scale green hydrogen production.

🔍 The Vijaipur plant is in line with the National Green Hydrogen Mission, which aims to achieve at least 5 million tons per year of green hydrogen by 2030. India aims for energy independence by 2047 and to achieve the Net Zero target by 2070. Green hydrogen is seen as a strategic element of the energy transition: it can be used for long-term storage of renewable energy, as a replacement for fossil fuels in industry, for sustainable transportation and potentially also for decentralized power generation, aviation and shipping.

💬 Hydrogen opportunities bring aviation industry together. ✈️🌱

🌍💡 #hydrogen #aviation #sustainability #Airbus #Aena #renewableenergies.

📅 This Tuesday, an agreement was made public to study the feasibility of creating a hydrogen airport hub in Spain. The six companies involved, covering the entire value chain, have joined forces to address the challenges of deploying hydrogen-powered aviation in the country, with the aim of fostering and supporting the growth of this ecosystem in the sector.

🔍 This collaboration will provide a holistic view of the hydrogen-powered aircraft and its integration into the airport ecosystem. It will focus not only on hydrogen supply and infrastructure, but also on the specific requirements of airport ground operations.

🔑 For Javier Arnaldo, Airbus Sustainability Director in Spain, it is “essential” that the aviation industry collaborates to ensure the future supply of hydrogen at airports, highlighting “Spain’s great potential” in renewables and low-carbon hydrogen production.

🌟 From Aena, Ana Salazar, its Director of Sustainability, has pointed out that this collaboration will allow understanding how the process of hydrogen supply to Spanish airports could materialize in the future, establishing a roadmap to address the main challenges.

💬 This is what it will cost to transport hydrogen, from North Africa to Germany, through the Southern corridor2: Snam estimates. 🌍🔋

🚀🏗️ #hydrogen #transport #Snam #decarbonization #Europe #hydrogengreen #corridorSouth2

📅 The opportunities for collaboration between Italy and Germany in the hydrogen value chain are numerous and extend along the 3,300 kilometers of the SoutH2 Corridor. This new infrastructure for hydrogen transport from North Africa to Germany via Italy and Austria is being developed by Snam in collaboration with the TSOs of the countries involved (TAG, CGA and bayernets).

🔍 A gas pipeline will make it possible to transport hydrogen produced at competitive costs on the southern shore of the Mediterranean, aimed mainly at the consumer markets of Central Europe. This corridor will be crucial to replace methane of Russian origin and decarbonize European industries, explained Piero Ercoli, executive director of Snam’s Decarbonization Unit, during the Italian-German Energy Forum 2024, organized in Rome by the Italian Chamber of Commerce for Germany – ITKAM (event of which HydroNews was Media Partner).

💬 DNV updates its rules for operation and qualification of hydrogen and carbon capture vessels on board. 🌊🚢

⚓🔋 #hydrogen #carboncapture #vessels #decarbonization #maritime #DNV.

📅 The classification society DNV published updates to its rules for the classification of ships and offshore structures. In addition to rules supporting the development and implementation of decarbonization and hydrogen ship enabling technologies, the new notations in operation seek to bring clarity to the responsibilities of classification clients.

🔍 “One of the most striking aspects of today’s maritime industry is the sheer diversity of challenges and opportunities where our customers are looking for classification assistance. It’s not just about new fuels, but ways for owners and managers to demonstrate their own efficiency, new vessel types to open up new markets, and advanced technologies such as onboard carbon capture,” said Geir Dugstad, global technical director, DNV Maritime.

📊 With the notations in operation, DNV developed the first in-service fleet-specific classification framework that enables owners and operators to show how they differentiate themselves in the market by implementing advanced procedures and reporting processes for greater safety and efficiency.

💬 Golden hydrogen: a natural energy source under the Pyrenees. 🌍🔋

🌱💡 #hydrogen #renewableenergy #Pyrenees #energyreserve #sustainableenergy.

📊 A large hydrogen reserve has been discovered under the Pyrenees, opening up new possibilities to meet part of the energy demand. According to Tritlla, “as it appears in areas that have never been explored for hydrocarbons, it opens up the possibility of highly populated areas that need this source of hydrogen.”

🔍 It is essential to understand the kinetics of this process in order to accelerate and increase hydrogen generation. One approach suggested by experts is to inject atmospheric CO₂, capturing CO₂ and producing hydrogen simultaneously, which could result in a system with negative emissions.

💬 Guarantee of origin system for renewable gases starts this month in Portugal. 🌍💨

🌱💡 #hydrogen #biomethane #renewablegases #certification #GuaranteesOfOrigin #REN #Portugal.

📅 This month, REN will start issuing certificates for renewable origin gases, such as hydrogen and biomethane, similar to what already happens with electricity. By the end of the year, this process will be internationalized with Portugal joining the Association of Issuing Entities (AIB) in the gas sector, allowing the import and export of these Guarantees of Origin in Europe.

🔍 Although some certification schemes for renewable gases are already operational in certain EU countries and there are bilateral exchanges, there is still no consolidated European market for Guarantees of Origin for this sector.

MPK starts testing a hydrogen bus. Solorz’s Nesobus is already touring the city. 🚍🌱 On which route?

🏆🌍 #hydrogen #bus #transport #MPK #Nesobus #Polsat

📅 Today, July 8, the hydrogen bus Nesobus can be found on line 142. For almost a month, until August 5, it will run on many other routes. MPK has started extensive testing of the Nesobus, a new brand in the world of buses and, moreover, developed by a Polish-owned company directly related to Polsat founder Zygmunt Solorz.

⛽ The hydrogen filling station, although open to the public, was built on Obornicka Street, next to the MPK bus station. The station is called Neso and, of course, it is no coincidence that its name is similar to Nesobus. The company behind it is PAK-PCE Stacje H2, another Polsat Plus Group company that deals with green hydrogen production.

🔋 Hydrogen is an interesting fuel in the context of transport, not only in urban transport. It has many advantages, but also some disadvantages. We wrote extensively about this in the article “They refuel with water and their exhaust gases are water”.
