Order for composite hydrogen storage

Hexagon Purus has received an order for carbon fiber reinforced hydrogen storage systems from German company HPS Home Power Solutions, a supplier of green hydrogen-based electricity storage.

The value of the order is around €2.0 million, the company said. The systems are scheduled for deliveries from Q2, 2022.

According to Hexagon, the power and building energy sectors account for nearly 40% of annual carbon emissions globally. HPS’s hydrogen is produced with surplus solar power from the summer using an electrolyzer and converted back into electricity in the winter.

“Our high-pressure hydrogen storage systems are flexible and scalable, suitable for a wide range of applications, such as storing baseload energy from solar plants,” said Matthias Kötter, head of sales at Hexagon Purus.
