PARIS, France — Technip Energies (T.EN) and its affiliates Kanfa and Inocean have released GO.H2 by T.EN, a full suite of carbon-free solutions for green hydrogen production, according to a recent T.EN news release.
This suite of solutions is based on renewable power sources (e.g., wind and solar), and it is flexible with building blocks that can be tailored depending on substructures, hydrogen products and derivatives produced, functionality and locations.
The offshore facility can be a fixed structure or a floater. The green hydrogen is produced using a seawater desalination unit, followed by electrolysis and exported to shore by a transport pipeline or offloaded on a carrier vessel.
For harsher environments, the substructure can be a spar or a semisubmersible.
For high capacities and further from shore, the hydrogen is converted by adding an ammonia or a liquid organic hydrogen carrier unit and transferred to a floating storage and offloading vessel. By adding hydrogen storage and fuel cells, the facility ensures a stable and continuous power supply for electrified oil and gas facilities powered by wind turbines.
For smaller capacities, the systems can be located on the floating offshore wind substructure or on the substation.
Intermittency management is addressed from design phase through adequate system architecture and technology bricks, power and hydrogen storage and control strategies. In operations, an energy management system enables online production optimization through predictive control models.
