-GKN Hydrogen and the National Institute of Renewable Energy (NREL) validate and demonstrate the dynamic operation of a 520 kg hydrogen metal hydride storage subsystem integrated with ARIES megawatt-scale hydrogen capabilities.
GKN Hydrogen (GKN) is funded by the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Office within the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office for $ 1.7 million and is the DOE’s National Renewable Energy Institute (NREL). Announced the addition of two HY2MEGA to. Metal hydride hydrogen storage tank for hydrogen assets at ARIES facility on NREL’s Flat Iron campus near Boulder, Colorado. GKN’s HY2MEGA storage subsystem will be connected to the megawatt-scale electrolytic cell and fuel cell of the ARIES facility and will be validated by NREL scientists and engineers. The performance of HY2MEGA installations is evaluated using the ARIES facility feature across a variety of operational conditions and simulated use cases. The construction schedule for adding the HY2MEGA storage subsystem to the ARIES facility is expected to coincide with the completion of hydrogen assets in September 2022.
Peter Oberparleiter, Chief Executive Officer of GKN Powder Metallurgy, said: It is necessary to accelerate the adoption of zero-emission technology so that all of us can reach our future clean energy goals. ”
With an energy storage capacity of over 260 kg of hydrogen (about 9 MWh of energy), GKN’s HY2MEGA is the largest metal hydride storage device on the market, making it ideal for energy supply applications where safety and compactness are important.
GKN Hydrogen, a division of GKN Powder Metallurgy, is a pioneer in safe, emission-free green hydrogen storage that enables organizations and societies around the world to meet their carbon-neutral goals now and in the coming years. Leveraging its world-leading position in powder metal solutions, we bring green, safe and compact hydrogen storage solutions based on metal hydrides to market and offer a variety of modular HY2 energy systems.
GKN Powder Metallurgy as a stand-alone business unit for Melrose PLC currently consists of four business units: GKN Powder, GKN Sinter Metal, GKN Additives and GKN Hydrogen. GKN Powder Metallurgy empowers more than 6,000 problem solvers in 29 locations, setting the global technology network to the highest standards.
