Hydrogen Technology Basis for WIVA – HyTechbasis

HYTECHBASIS 4 WIVA aims to reach higher level of industrialization by developing next Generation PEM fuel cell as well as high-pressure electrolysis technology. By applying advanced catalyst coated membrane technology and the usage of sophisticated technology in bipolar plate manufacturing HYTECHBASIS 4 WIVA fundamentally improves state-of-the-art electrolysis technology. Moreover, a generic PEM fuel cell system platform based on next generation low-cost metal bipolar plates stack architecture and highly function integrated peripheral components paves the way for a broader range of marketable applications. Both the electrolysis as well as the fuel cell technology benefit from newly considered holistic approach applied in HYTECHBASIS 4 WIVA.

Pave the way for green hydrogen for early adopters in the light Industry – H2Pioneer

H2Pioneer targets green hydrogen applications for an industry segment with moderate hydrogen capacity needs and superior quality requirements (grade 8.0, e.g. electronics industry). Complying with the highest industrial requirements for hydrogen purity, quality monitoring and supply reliability, H2Pioneer raises green hydrogen to the next level of industrial usage in addition to the current fields
of application in mobility or for thermal utilization and enables industrial clients to take part in the overall energy transition by sector coupling. The focus of the project is the semiconductor production site of Infineon Technologies Austria AG in Villach. H2Pioneer challenges the current supply chain of central, fossil fuel based production by steam methane reforming, liquefaction and delivery via trailer through the implementation of an onsite, green energy driven electrolyser and purification system in an accompanying KPC project. Another key goal is the development of a modular thermodynamic simulation tool for the optimization of hydrogen cycles for industrial processes with a focus on hydrogen quality and its reutilization options to further increase the overall energy efficiency.

Upscaling of green hydrogen for mobility and Industry – UpHy I

A goal of UpHy I is the development of advanced analytical methods to detect all desired hydrogen quality parameters (ISO 14687-2) directly from the dispenser. A further major Goal is the development of a mobile mass measurement technique which is urgently needed for official calibration of dispensed mass at all HRS. Hence, UpHy I facilitates the further expansion of the HRS network by developing solutions for official calibration of gas Quality and dispensed hydrogen mass. Furthermore, the gas quality testing of the overall hydrogen value chain from production over distribution to the HRS will be performed with respect to
the new standards. In addition, concepts for upscaling scenarios of green hydrogen production by electrolysis as well as the corresponding logistics for distribution and a modular hydrogen refuelling Station consisting of a 300 bar trailer refilling hub and a 350 bar refuelling infrastructure for busses and trucks will be developed, which will serve a basis for the follow up project UpHy II.

Renewable Gasfield

The holistic Power-to-Gas approach of Renewable Gasfield combines hydrogen production from renewable energy sources via electrolysis with a newly developed load-flexible methanation plant. The versatile infrastructure concept includes storage, distribution and utilization of renewable hydrogen and synthetically produced methane with the consideration of regional conditions. The utilized load-flexible methanation technology, as required in combination with fluctuating renewable energies, will be directly coupled to an existing biogas plant. The methanation plant is part of a corresponding KPC project. The modularity
of the infrastructure concept is a key innovation of this approach and allows a subsequent expansion of all plant sections to future requirements.

Hydrogen Truck Austria – HyTruck

The main project goal of HyTruck is to develop, build, calibrate and validate a heavy-duty Fuel Cell System including its key technologies that fulfills the requirements of commercial vehicles regarding power, efficiency, reliability, and lifetime. It consists of new and innovative control strategies that improve key metrics compared to the state-of-the-art. New and innovative energy management at the vehicle level will be key. Also, the hydrogen tank system will be laid out accordingly including thermal simulation. The involvement of truck OEMs and truck fleet operators ensures the development of a market-oriented, flexible, and modular fuel cell system, which is suitable for many commercial use cases. It is planned to perform the vehicle integration of the validated HyTruck HD fuel cell System and to further demonstrate the FC truck in daily business at a fleet operator within the WIVA P&G follow-up project HyTruck 2.
