Hydrogen Generation System for Germany

Proton Energy Systems, Inc. a company in hydrogen generation and fuel cell technology and products, has supplied a HOGEN 380 hydrogen generator for a hydrogen and Renewable Energy project in Barth, Germany.

Wallingford, Connecticut – February 4, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] The system, delivered last November, was commissioned and successfully passed acceptance testing earlier this month. The HOGEN 380 hydrogen generator will be used to compress and store hydrogen at high-pressure to provide fuel for a fuel cell-powered bus. The oxygen byproduct from the unit will be used to increase Barth’s wastewater treatment capacity by adding oxygen to its biological wastewater treatment system. The Barth environmental site will also incorporate solar panels for zero emission electricity generation. The HOGEN 380 is capable of generating 380 standard cubic feet of hydrogen per hour. Other features of the generator include a self-contained weatherized design and a remote monitoring package. “This HOGEN 380 hydrogen generator project shows the versatility of our product, which is capable of generating hydrogen wherever water and electricity are available,” said Proton Energy Systems President and CEO Walter Schroeder. “Because the project also incorporates solar panels, we are able to demonstrate a way to produce hydrogen fuel directly from renewables. This is our ultimate vision for energy sustainability: creating the technical link between renewable resources and transportation energy needs.”
