Hydrogen Engine Center Ships for International Chemical Industry

Hydrogen Engine Center, Inc. (HEC) has shipped its proprietary hydrogen-fueled Oxx Power Generator Set (genset) to Grasim Industries Ltd., an Aditya Birla Group company based in India.

This signifies the first installation of a hydrogen-fueled generator system powered by hydrogen byproduct or waste energy from a chemical industry facility, such as the Grasim chlor-alkali factory. After installation and testing, this closed-loop system for stationary, near-zero emission power generation is expected to be available for chlor-alkali manufacturing plants worldwide. The system will operate using HEC’s Oxx Power engines and highly scalable genset technology featuring the Oxx Boxx engine controller. “We expect this to be a significant breakthrough in how to utilize hydrogen byproduct as a low cost, environmentally friendly reliable fuel source in the chemical industry sector,” said Ted Hollinger, HEC President and CEO. International teams at HEC Iowa, HEC Canada and Grasim in India continue to move forward to secure the necessary approvals and manufacturing permits for chemical industry specific plants to be able to generate power with near-zero emissions by using HEC’s gensets. HEC’s Chief Operating Officer, Don Vanderbrook said, “The HEC technology solution is very scalable, as we can provide power ranging from 35 kW to 250 kW. We are ready to provide alternative energy power generation systems to the marketplace now.”
