Why We Committed to the Project
The emergence of e-fuels as a sustainable energy source is transforming the global energy landscape, and 2JCP intends to be at the heart of this transformation. Proof of our commitment to advancing clean energy solutions is our recent assignment in the Danish town of Kassø, where, in partnership with Siemens Energy, we are partaking in a pioneering project focused on e-methanol production for European Energy A/S.
E-methanol offers an efficient solution to challenges related to hydrogen storage and represents the future of energy for aircraft, ships (Maersk cargo ship fleet in our case), and trains. In this project, hydrogen is produced on-site and subsequently converted to e-methanol, which can be easily transported. Lego and Novo Nordisk are also among the planned users of e-methanol produced in Kassø.
How We Contributed to the Project
The electrolyzer used in this project, the Siemens Silyzer 300, utilizes PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolysis – a sophisticated form of electrolysis with high efficiency. These electrolyzers are among the first industrial-scale electrolyzers to be deployed, marking a significant milestone in the energy industry.
For 2JCP, the premier partner of Siemens Energy in the packaging of Silyzer 300 electrolyzers, this project represented our first notch in the hydrogen sector. 2JCP was responsible for packaging of three 17.5 MW Silyzer 300 units that will be used in the Kassø project. Siemens Energy delivered the electrolyzer stacks and the heat exchangers to Račice, while the rest was entirely up to 2JCP. This ranged from detailed engineering of the entire equipment, the design of gas separation vessels, through to the manufacture of individual components (mix of carbon and stainless steel) and the assembly of all components into a functioning system, including electrical installation.
