High Temperature Electrolyser System at Total H2 Refuelling Station Karlsruhe
Initial installation and testing of a novel solar hydrogen high-temperature electrolysis plant (SOEC) for the production and storage of renewable hydrogen at a solar hydrogen station of Total Germany GmbH in Karlsruhe. The plant is designed to ensure an electrical connected load of 10 kW and a hydrogen (H2) production of about 0.22 kg/h. It will be powered by renewable energy. With the operation and the monitoring of the electrolyser under real conditions over min. 5000 h, new knowledge about the system can be acquired.
