HYDROGEN FUEL CELL IN THE REFINERY OF MARTINIQUE
Integration, implementation and operation of a 1MW Ballard System Fuel Cell in SARA refinery in Martinique. By-product hydrogen from the refinery is turned into electrical supply and delivered to the grid.
9 million project carried out as part of a European FCHJU (Fuel Cell Hydrogen Joint Undertaking) project.
SOLAR RENEWSTABLE® IN FRENCH GUIANA
CEOG is a 100% clean energy power plant that produces electricity 24/7.
CEOG is a PV plant associated with a MSE storage to produce 10 MW during the day and 3 MW overnight for the grid in French Guiana.
WIND RENEWSTABLE® IN SOUTH AMERICA
The MSE solution will be part of a microgrid (80 MW) in South America.
This micro grid is composed with farms and an MSE storage solution. The MSE helps to secure electrical supply to the end users and reduce the use of generator sets.
RENEWSTABLE® IN AUSTRALIA
HDF is participating in the tenders launched by the states of Queensland and South Australia. We are also developing projects with the State of NSW.
HDF has incorporated a subsidiary in Sydney to better meet the needs of the Australian energy market and develop the hydrogen economy.
The use of hydrogen in massive storage projects may lead to other applications such as mobility. Storing Hydrogen may also require very large storage capacity such as geological cavities.
HDF Energy participates in the European Commission/ FCH-JU (FP7 program and Horizon2020). HDF Energy is an active member of the French hydrogen union (AFHYPAC).
H2 BUS FRANCE
HDF Energy was the initial coordinator of the cluster H2Bus France mandated by the EU to represent Southern Europe (France, Spain, Italy, Greece).
Goal : promote and support fuel-cell bus deployment in Europe.
Aphypac took over the coordinating role in 2017.
HDF Energy initiated the implementation of a hydrogen refueling station (HRS) for fuel-cell vehicles in bordeaux under the European programme H2ME2. This HRS was to produce its own hydrogen on site through an electrolyser and supply hydrogen at a pressure of 700 bars and 350 bars. The project was transferRed to Engie in Paris in 2017.
GEOLOGICAL STORAGE & POWER-TO-GAS
Geological layers from very large reservoirs can be used to store high quantity of hydrogen. HDF Energy is currently studying undergound capacity potential for seasonal storage applications.
The first feasibility studies were launched for several basins in the world.
