Clean energy company agrees equipment sale to Germany

Sheffield-based energy storage and clean fuel company ITM is to sell a 1MW electrolyser system with some additional equipment to German company ZEAG Energie AG

This takes the total projects under contract form ITM to £11.40m, with a further £7.28m in the final stages of negotiation.

ZEAG produces and supplies of electric power in Germany, generating electricity through wind power, hydropower, photovoltaics, nuclear, fossil, and other fuels. It also supplies natural gas to industrial, commercial, and residential customers in the northeastern district of Heilbronn.

The system ITM Power will supply includes an electrolyser, compressor and apparatus to fill tube trailers. The system will be owned and operated by ZEAG but housed in a specially constructed building located at DLR, the German Aerospace Centre in Lampoldshausen.

ITM Power is exploring a small further engineering consultancy contract to assist DLR with extended use of hydrogen facilities.

The system is being supplied with a two year warranty plus a five- year maintenance contract. Delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2017.

Dr Graham Cooley, CEO, ITM Power commented: “Germany continues to be an important early adoption market for hydrogen fuel and Power-to-Gas equipment and we look forward to updating the market in the near future on further sales.”
