Ukraine is studying the prospects for the production of green hydrogen
The country’s largest hydropower company, Ukrhydroenergo, is exploring the possibilities of producing and using “green” hydrogen using the renewable potential of Ukrainian hydroelectric power plants, taking into account world experience.
The company analyzes and conducts fruitful work on a pilot project for the installation of a 1 MW electrolysis plant for the production of “green” hydrogen.
In this direction, Ukrhydroenergo cooperates with foreign partners. In particular, recently, in April of this year, the company signed a memorandum with the German company “MAN Energy Solutions” and the global supplier of equipment and services for hydroelectric power plants “ANDRYTZ HYDRO” on the development and implementation of projects for the production of “green” hydrogen in Ukraine. The parties are working fruitfully and exploring hydrogen generation technologies.
The joint project considered five cells, each of which can produce up to 100 kg of hydrogen per day. Today the company analyzes and conducts fruitful work on a pilot project for the installation of a 1 MW electrolysis plant for the production of “green” hydrogen.
The company is convinced that against the background of the war unleashed by Russia, the development of hydrogen energy is important not only for Ukraine but for the whole of Europe. According to Ukrhydroenergo, international cooperation in this area will launch global processes that will help create a hydrogen hub in the future.
