ZEG Power at Hannover Fair 2017

The Hannover Fair is the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology and is held every year on the Hannover fairground in Hannover, Germany.

The H2FC is the Hannover Fair group exhibit for hydrogen, fuel cells and batteries and is Europe’s largest hydrogen, fuel cells and battery exhibition. This year H2FC had 160 exhibitors from 20 countries. ZEG Power attended the exhibit as part of a joint Norwegian initiative by the Norwegian Hydrogen Forum, together with NEL Hydrogen, Hystorsys, Hexagon Raufoss, CerPoTech and Greenstat.

ZEG Power has given a presentation on the “Upscale and commercialization of the technology” during the Technical Forum, a part of the exhibition.

New TechnoSER project started

ZEG Power has been awarded funding from the Research Council of Norway to carry out the first phase (April 2017-June 2018) of TechnoSER; Technical innovations for upscaling and commercialization of the Sorption-Enhanced Reforming technology. The project will bring relevant high level technical innovations for stand-alone hydrogen production with the Sorption-Enhanced Reforming (SER) technology, focused on process intensification. These technical innovations are expected to increase the overall performance of the reforming process with CO2 capture and to decrease significantly the investment and operation costs compared with conventional technology combining auto-thermal reforming, water gas shift and MDEA amine scrubbing. The brought innovations are also expected to make the SER process more competitive and attractive for potential industrial customers.

MoZEES Centre Kick-off

ZEG Power has joined MoZEES, the New Norwegian Research Centre on Mobility Zero Emission Energy Systems with focus on battery and hydrogen technology for transport applications. The kick-off meeting was held on the 20th and 21st of March at IFE facilities in Kjeller, Norway.

The main objective with MoZEES is to be a Centre for environment-friendly energy research (FME) with the goal to develop new battery and hydrogen materials, components, and technologies for existing and future transport applications on road, rail, and sea. MoZEES will consist of 7 national Research Partners, 6 international Research Partners, and more than 30 User Partners, including 20 commercial and industrial User Partners.

ZEG Power will contribute to MoZEES through its experience on hydrogen systems design and operation as well as hydrogen applications

Bio4fuels Centre Kick-off

ZEG Power has joined Bio4fuels, a Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) based at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) and lead by SINTEF. The Centre kick-off meeting was held on the 9th and 10th of February at NMBU facilities in Ås, Norway.

The Centre aims to develop innovative technology and support industries to realize economic and sustainable conversion of lignocellulosis biomass and organic residues to transportation fuels, along with added value chemicals, heat and power. Key research is to increase the efficiencies and yields of major process steps within the different value chains, as well as achieving techno-economic insights for the optimal integration within and across value chains and greater understanding of the environmental consequences of the various value chains.

ZEG power will contribute to Bio4Fuels with its experience on the use of biofuels for the co-production of hydrogen and electricity.

ZEG Power at the Hannover Fair

ZEG Power participated also this year at the Hannover Fair, the world’s largest industrial fair arranged every year in April.

The group exhibit of hydrogen, fuel cells and batteries is Europe’s largest hydrogen, fuel cells and battery exhibition. This year’s fair had 160 exhibitors from 25 countries. ZEG Power attended the exhibit as part of a joint Norwegian initiative by the Norwegian Hydrogen Forum, together with H2 Logic, NEL Hydrogen, Hystorsys, Hexagon Raufoss, CerPoTech and Greenstat.

The ZEG- technology was presented in the Technical Forum, a part of the exhibition. Participation in Hannover is important because ZEG Power is then visible, we get a nice opportunity to get updated in the field of hydrogen and fuel cells and not least because of the possibility of establishing new contacts and networking.

Massive attendance during display of BioZEG plant

On November 11th, the BioZEG plant was exhibited as a part of the Hydrogen Supplier Conference 2015, as an example of the potential for development in an area that very well could be Norways next industrial adventure. The conference is a joint effort by Akershus County Council, Oslo municipality, National Program for Supplier Development, OREEC and The Norwegian Hydrogen Forum. A total of 45 humans attended the exhibition of the BioZEG plant accompanied by a light serving. ZEG personnel were present to explain how the BioZEG plant works, as well as the basics of the ZEG technology.

 

 

Hydrogen Mobility Europe Launched

ITM Power reports that a large coalition of European partners has launched the Hydrogen Mobility Europe project (H2ME). H2ME is co-funded with €32 million from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The project will support the deployment of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) and Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS) across Europe. Under H2ME 200 FCEVs, 125 fuel cell range-extended electric (FC RE-EVs) commercial vans and 29 new HRSs in 10 countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK) will be deployed by 2019.

Norwegian Hydrogen Forum has announced that in Norway HYOP will be responsible for the establishment of a new HRS, and Hyundai will assist in the delivery of cars. This well-coordinated project will be a crucial step for the development of hydrogen infrastructure in Europe, where Norway plays an important rolesays Ulf Hafseld, Chief Executive Officer of HYOP. ZEG Power rejoices over this initiative and looks forward to assisting in the continuation.

BioZEG plant to be exhibited during the Hydrogen Supplier Conference 2015

The Hydrogen Supplier Conference 2015 is held November 11th in Lillestrøm, a joint effort by Akershus County Council, Oslo municipality, National Program for Supplier Development, OREEC and The Norwegian Hydrogen Forum

The year 2015 seems to be a very important year for the development towards low- and zero-emission transport. A number of major news about the maturation and development of both hydrogen vehicles and associated infrastructure over the past year has caused a sensation and become an important part in the discussion of upcoming new solutions.

At the conclusion of the program the BioZEG plant will be exhibited to the participants.
