Portugal to start blending 10% hydrogen fuel in natural gas pipeline network

Portugal will begin blending 10 percent hydrogen fuel in its natural gas pipeline network. The country is adapting its gas network in order to start transporting blended fuels as early as this year. The information comes from a statement released by Portugal’s REN. The Portuguese government plans to hold its first green hydrogen auction later this year. This expected to happen in the second half of 2023. The winner of the auction will sell hydrogen, which will injected into the country’s natural gas pipelines.

Forbes International Tower will be the first skyscraper in the world to operate with the LOHC hydrogen system

“The Forbes International Building will be the first project in the world to use entirely liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) systems. The Booth International Building utilizes H2-Enterprises’ proprietary technology. It uses previously non-recyclable plastic and other organic waste as a feedstock for energy production. Utilizing Schneider Electric’s innovative energy management digital solutions to produce clean hydrogen. Not only does it address key energy challenges, but it also provides 24/7 power needs for the tower’s operations in a sustainable manner.

The total value of the purchase order is approximately $24 million. This includes the previously announced amount of approximately $7 million in capacity set-aside agreements.

The world’s first offshore hydrogen production project has started producing the first green hydrogen

Lhyfe is testing the Sealhyfe offshore hydrogen production platform in France after it towed last month to the SEMV-REV offshore test site connected to BW Ideol’s floating wind turbine Floatgen, which began producing first hydrogen on June 20, according to a June 27 report. Sealhyfe is expected to be able to produce up to 400 kilograms of hydrogen per day.

Germany and South Africa to deepen cooperation in the field of green hydrogen

On June 27, it reported that South African Minister of Power in the Presidency Ramohoopa and German Deputy Chancellor Habeck signed a joint declaration of intent to establish a South African-German working group on hydrogen energy. The working group will study how to create, develop and grow a green hydrogen market. The collaboration aims to connect South African developers with German offtakers. The German offtaker will seek to provide additional funding for green hydrogen projects and create commercially viable projects in South Africa.

ZeroAvia plans a series of hydrogen power technology modifications for Bombardier CRJs

ZeroAvia, a developer of zero-emission hydrogen-electric aerodynamic power systems, revealed at the recent Paris Air Show that the CRJ700 aircraft could retrofitted with the company’s ZA 2000RJ power system and identified “clear applications” for the Bombardier CRJ.
