Yara, Equinor participate in Hystar electrolyser trial in Norway

September 29 (Renewables Now) – The clear ammonia enterprise of Norwegian crop vitamin firm Yara Worldwide ASA will be part of a pilot challenge in Rogaland involving the primary in-field take a look at of a 1-MW PEM electrolyser engineered and designed by Hystar AS.

The challenge will happen at Gassco’s Karsto fuel processing plant the place the containerised electrolyser might be commissioned within the second half of 2023. The system might be run for a complete of 10,000 hours and the efficiency information it supplies might be used to confirm long-term business operation.

“We stay up for collaborating with Hystar and learning the outcomes of the 1 MW pilot electrolyser challenge. The data we achieve from the HyPilot challenge will give useful enter to our work in creating inexperienced ammonia for fertiliser, deep-sea delivery, and energy manufacturing,” commented Lise Winther, SVP Upstream Initiatives & Applied sciences at Yara Clear Ammonia.

One other accomplice on this challenge is Equinor ASA (NYSE:EQNR). The power main and offshore wind developer “will reveal dynamic hydrogen manufacturing tailor-made to swimsuit the variable output sometimes present in wind functions.”

Hystar, a spin-off of European impartial analysis organisation SINTEF, stated that over the approaching months it would fabricate a whole PEM electrolyser able to producing as much as 500 kg of inexperienced hydrogen per day.

The corporate claims that the membrane it makes use of in its patented design is considerably thinner than these in typical PEM electrolysers, which supplies for higher effectivity. It believes will probably be in a position to attain onsite gigawatt-scale manufacturing by 2025.
