• ABB and China’s leading manufacturer of hydrogen generation technology sign memorandum of understanding to accelerate widespread adoption of hydrogen as an energy source;
• The two companies will explore how integrating ABB’s automation, electrification and digital solutions with PERIC electrolyzers can help reduce hydrogen production costs in the future.
PERIC Hydrogen Technologies Co., Ltd., a China-based company with more than 60 years of experience in providing products and technologies for hydrogen production, seeks to further enhance its capabilities to manufacture highly electrolyser systems. efficient devices that generate hydrogen by using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
The demand for hydrogen, which has more than tripled since 1975, continues to increase. According to the International Energy Agency (iea.org), clean hydrogen is currently enjoying unprecedented momentum, with the number of policies and projects around the world increasing rapidly. The development of technologies and the reduction of production costs are essential to enable hydrogen to become widely used.
The collaboration between ABB and PERIC will include ongoing consultation relating to the development of common solutions and / or the integration of complementary technologies that will optimize the efficient production of green hydrogen. The objective is that a detailed action plan and a specific agreement be defined within three months of the signing of the MoU.
PERIC (perichtec.com) will integrate a wide range of ABB’s automation, electrification and digital solutions into the project and will involve ABB in initiatives where specific ABB technology can be included, such as rectifiers, distributed control, energy management, advanced analytics. , instrumentation and telecommunications.
“It is essential that hydrogen is generated as efficiently as possible. ABB’s energy management technologies, combined with their automation, electrification and digitization solutions, will help us find the best way to improve the efficiency of our own operations, which in turn will help us find the best way to improve the efficiency of our own operations. turn, will help minimize the cost of hydrogen production, ”Zhang said. Yuguang, Managing Director, PERIC.
ABB’s integrated approach will play a key role in helping PERIC optimize energy use throughout the plant, thereby reducing electrolyser production costs. Using ABB’s digital solutions, all plant equipment data will be integrated into a single automation system that will be continuously analyzed to maintain continuous and efficient operation.
“Hydrogen has significant potential to play an important role in a clean energy future and is an important pillar of the current energy transition. We are delighted to work with PERIC and put our technologies into play alongside their world-class electrolysis skills, in a collaboration that reflects our shared vision of energy efficient, affordable and clean hydrogen production ”, said Brandon Spencer, president, Energy Industries. at ABB.
ABB works with customers and partners to develop and integrate technology that will make green hydrogen an accessible and affordable component of the global low-carbon energy mix. In Italy, ABB is partnering with Swiss utility company Axpo to develop modular green hydrogen plants that aim to create an optimal operating model for producing affordable green hydrogen. In France, ABB is supplying its Freelance distributed control system and digital platform for the management of ABB Ability ™ manufacturing operations to the first production site of Lhyfe, a producer and supplier of 100% green hydrogen. ABB is also working with Hydrogen Optimized, a sustainable energy conversion company in Canada, to jointly explore the development of large-scale, grid-connected green hydrogen production systems to provide a clean, sustainable energy carrier. and affordable.
PERIC, a global company based in China, has so far manufactured more than 1,300 sets of hydrogen production systems with the highest reliability and advanced technology, supplied to domestic and international customers. The total manufacturing base of hydrogen electrolysis systems is about 21,500 square meters, with annual output reaching 350 sets of hydrogen generation systems.
