Nedstack has a long track record making PEM fuel cell stacks and power plants, converting hydrogen to electricity. These PEM Power Plants can be used in industrial applications where excess hydrogen is available, such as the chlor-alkali industry, but also in other areas, such as Gas-to-Power (G2P) applications.
Nedstack’s PEM Fuel Cells shows the highest energy efficiency, delivering the most electricity for the hydrogen provided, when comparing against other types of energy systems. The table below shows our PEM Power Plant compares favorably against four other fuel cell options (Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells (MCFT), Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cells (PAFC), Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), Alkaline Fuel Cells (AFC) and even Internal Combustion Engines (ICE).
1. Industrial CHP (Combined Heat & Power) / Chlor-Alkali industry
Some industrial processes, such as the Chlorine industry produce vast quantities of high quality hydrogen as a by-product. In many cases, this hydrogen is not fully utilized. Nedstack PEM fuel cells offer an excellent opportunity to maximize the energy recovery from this hydrogen, yielding a saving of up to 20% on the electricity consumption of the chlorine plant. In addition, the heat from the fuel cells can be reused in the process, adding even more savings on energy consumption. Click to go to page: Industrial CHP / Chlor-Alkali industry
2. PEM Power Plant
As we move towards a sustainable society, renewably produced hydrogen will play an important role as an energy carrier. Stored hydrogen can be converted in our PEM Powerplants to bridge periods with a shortage in renewable electricity production, ranging from peak hours, days, or even winter seasons. Our PEM Fuel Cells are very reliable and exhibit excellent dynamic response properties, making this technology ideally suitable for this application.For many years Nedstack has demonstrated the reliability of our PEM Power Plant technology in the field at different scales and in a variety of environments.
3. Back-up Power Supply
Backup power systems for Telecoms, Utilities and Railways are used to power electronic systems during grid power outages. A backup system energized with Nedstack PEM fuel cells offers high reliability and the lowest total cost of ownership.
