Green Hydrogen Systems receives an order from Gaznat for its Innovation Lab in Switzerland

Green Hydrogen Systems, a leading provider of efficient pressurised alkaline electrolysers used in on-site hydrogen production based on renewable electricity, has today signed an agreement with Gaznat to deliver electrolysis equipment for its Innovation Lab in Switzerland.

The order includes the supply of a GHS HyProvide® A90 electrolyser with a capacity of ~0.5 MW for the production of green hydrogen from renewable solar energy. Manufactured by Green Hydrogen Systems and operated by Gaznat, the electrolyser will be deployed in a 20ft container as a complete green hydrogen plant.

When fully operational, the ordered electrolyser will have the capacity to supply approximately 195 kg of green hydrogen per day. The hydrogen will be used to produce synthetic methane with a new and innovative methanation reactor developed by Gaznat, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and GRZ Technologies. The synthetic methane will be injected into the distribution grid covering the region of Chablais in Switzerland.

Green Hydrogen Systems will be responsible for delivering the electrolyser and will support the project with on-site maintenance and remote monitoring and support under a three-year service agreement.

“With the current situation, the need for acceleration of Europe’s independence from fossil-fuels is requiring even more rapid actions. The project with Gaznat demonstrates how green hydrogen can be used as a building block to achieve a more sustainable energy system with existing gas networks,” says Green Hydrogen Systems CCO Søren Rydbirk.

“We have scoured the electrolysis market and concluded that Green Hydrogen Systems was the best product to cover the needs for our new Innovation Lab in Aigle (Switzerland)” says Gilles Verdan, Director in charge of Networks activities with Gaznat.
