Pure Energy® Centre (PEC), Pioneers and industry experts in the design, supply and commissioning of complete hydrogen systems, have developed a mobile hydrogen refuelling station to be used for training purposes as part of the international North Sea Region project ZEM port NS project The PEC have also developed a set of training modules to support the training of personnel to develop skill, knowledge and understanding of Hydrogen technology and operational understanding of the mobile hydrogen refuelling station.
The first training module takes participants through the importance of hydrogen as an energy vector and its potential when combined with renewables energy to facilitate the decarbonisation of ports and harbours in the North Sea region. The second training module moves on to introduce how to produce Hydrogen from both conventional methods from fossil fuels and electrolysis from clean energy sources. The third module will present how to store and transport hydrogen while the fourth module takes the participants through the application of fuel cells. The last module then takes participants through all aspects of safety for hydrogen systems.
Meanwhile the refuelling station developed by PEC allows participants to gain hands on field experience to enable the safe use of hydrogen equipment. The mobile refuelling station developed by the Pure Energy Centre as part of the ZEMPort NS Project is capable of producing Pure Hydrogen® up to 900 bar and storing it in a specialist storage system capable of dispensing into end user applications at pressures up to 700 bar.
The complete mobile hydrogen refuelling system has a compact footprint and is integrated within a standard 10’ ISO shipping container. The system requires only electricity and a water source and can obtain 99.999% pure hydrogen. Input water is first filtered in a special filtration system that produces ISO 3696 type 2 purified water with a fixed residue of less than 1 PPM which prolongs the life of the electrolysis process. The complete system is fully autonomous and can be remotely monitored.“
