Hydrogen technology training modules developed

The Pure Energy Centre has developed training modules to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of Hydrogen technology. Additionally, they developed a mobile hydrogen refuelling station.

The Pure Energy® Centre (PEC) is a pioneer and industry expert in the design, supply and commissioning of complete hydrogen systems. PEC has developed a mobile hydrogen refuelling station for training as part of the ZEM port NS project. PEC has also developed a set of training modules to support the training of personnel to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of Hydrogen technology and operational understanding of the mobile hydrogen refuelling station.

The first training module takes participants through the importance of hydrogen as an energy vector and its potential when combined with renewable energy to facilitate the decarbonisation of ports and harbours in the North Sea region.  The second training module introduces how to produce Hydrogen from conventional methods from fossil fuels and electrolysis from clean energy sources.  The third module will present how to store and transport hydrogen, while the fourth module will take the participants through the application of fuel cells. The last module then takes participants through all aspects of safety for hydrogen systems.

Meanwhile, the refuelling station developed by PEC allows participants to gain hands-on field experience safely using hydrogen equipment.  

The mobile refuelling station developed by the Pure Energy Centre can produce Pure Hydrogen® up to 900 bar and store it in a specialist storage system capable of dispensing into end-user applications at pressures up to 700 bar.

The complete mobile hydrogen refuelling system has a compact footprint and is integrated within a standard 10’ ISO shipping container. The system requires only electricity and a water source and can obtain 99.999% pure hydrogen. The input water is first filtered in a unique filtration system that produces ISO 3696 type 2 purified water with a fixed residue of less than 1 PPM, which prolongs the life of the electrolysis process.  The complete system is fully autonomous and can be remotely monitored.

The Pure Energy Centre has constructed all the main components of the mobile refuelling station and is currently conducting various safety and performance tests to ensure safe and efficient operation. It is planned to be put into operation in March 2023.
