Sale of equipment to CEA
ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce the sale of a hydrogen generation system to CEA Grenoble, France.
The CEA, a French government-funded technological research organisation, will use the 5Nm3/hr unit in a project targeted at the storage of renewable energy. The ITM Power electrolyser will be fed by a power simulator designed to mimic various forms of renewable energy. The hydrogen will be produced on site and stored in a metal hydride system before being used in a fuel cell to generate renewable power on demand and to supply green hydrogen.
The unit will be built in the UK and housed within a containerised platform that will be shipped to France as a fully CE marked plug and play unit.
Dr Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power plc commented: "CEA is a world class organization and we are delighted that they have decided to buy electrolysis equipment from ITM Power."
