AEG Power Solutions supplying power at Haurup wind power site

AEG Power Solutions, a global provider of power supply systems and solutions for industrial, critical infrastructure and innovative power electronic applications has announced that H-TEC SYSTEMS has chosen an AEG PS power package solution for the hydrogen production plant built at Haurup in Schleswig-Holstein by the renewable energy company Energie des Nordens (EdN).

The project was implemented to optimise local wind energy production. Excess wind power is generated at this grid node. By implementing the electrolyser, every kilowatt produced can be used instead of switching off the wind turbines. The newly developed system with a nominal output of one megawatt will feed up to three million kilowatt hours from excess wind power as hydrogen annually into the gas network.

The plant contributes to the supply of around 20,000 proWindgas customers of Greenpeace Energy, the main shareholder of EdN. It is also supporting the stabilisation of the grid. The renewable gas can be stored in the existing gas network and converted back into electricity in flexible gas-fired power plants anywhere in Germany, if required.

H-TEC SYSTEMS is equipping the plant with an ME 450/1400 PEM electrolyser. The company is a technology leader in the manufacturing of PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolysers for the production of green hydrogen. To supply power to its modular and flexibly deployable electrolysers H-TEC SYSTEMS chose Thyrobox DC 3 systems for their flexibility and high efficiency.

The Thyrobox DC 3 was designed to provide a good power factor and minimised harmonics even at part loads, which contribute to energy efficiency and limited distortions to the grid feeder, and finally reduce the overall cost of operations of such processes as electrolysis.
