Hydrogenics gets funds for demo

Hydrogen generator and power cell developer Hydrogenics Corporation has announced it has won a major energy storage R&D and demonstration project in Europe as part of a consortium with eight other partners.

The ‘Don Quichote’ project (for ‘Demonstration Of New Qualitative Innovative Concept of Hydrogen Out of wind Turbine Electricity’) is receiving  a €2.86 million investment by the European Commission as part of a Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, and will take five years to complete, says the company.

The project will consist of a 350 bar electrochemical compressor, a 30Nm3 PEM electrolyser system and a 90 kW fuel cell system to demonstrate the technical and economical viability of an integrated hydrogen storage system for renewable electricity linked to a hydrogen refueling facility.

The consortium will design, build, deploy and operate the system at the Colruyt site near Brussels, to double the capacity of an existing 350 bar fueling station to 130 kilograms per day, and install a fuel cell system for electricity demand leveling.
