Ceres and AtkinsRealis to design modularised green hydrogen production system

news item image
A leading player in clean energy technology, Ceres, has joined forces with AtkinsRealis, a world-leading design, engineering and project management organisation, to deliver the front-end engineering design (FEED) for a commercial multi-megawatt modularised hydrogen production system based on Ceres' robust, low-cost and highly efficient solid oxide technology.
Solid oxide electrolysis (SOEC) provides a route to generate green hydrogen over 25% more efficiently than incumbent lower temperature technology, said Ceres.
Ceres and AtkinsRealis' collaboration aims to create a blueprint of the optimum system architecture for a 100MW+ electrolyser system to produce green hydrogen, as a building block for gigawatt-scale plants, added the organisation.
It went on to say that hydrogen is broadly accepted as a key factor in enabling the energy transition - at the very least, for hard-to-decarbonise industrial sectors that account for a third of energy demand and over a third of global carbon emissions.
Ceres' said its unique, inherently reversible solid oxide technology reduces cost while maximising efficiency resulting in highly competitive total cost of ownership.
Utilising commonly found materials, it can be mass produced with a limited carbon footprint and is already being scaled under licence through partners in Germany, Korea and Taiwan, according to the organisation.
AtkinsRealis has global expertise and capabilities in hydrogen across the full value chain, from production and storage to distribution and utilisation.
AtkinsRealis and Ceres are working together to identify and maximise opportunities to use Ceres' technology in industrial applications by combining their respective engineering and industry knowledge to accelerate commercialisation at pace and scale.
Jon Harman, Technology Delivery Director, Ceres commented "As we continue to decarbonise those sectors where emissions are traditionally difficult to avoid, both innovation and relationships are key. Our collaboration with AtkinsRealis will help find solutions which not only reduce emissions but are also more economical and can be deployed quickly and at scale."
Gareth Richardson, technology lead - hydrogen and low carbon energy, AtkinsRealis, said: "The development of new hydrogen technology is an essential building block towards achieving large scale reductions in industrial emissions. This collaboration has the potential to build on Ceres' existing technology to develop highly efficient, cost-effective solutions to produce green hydrogen and we look forward to progressing the technology with the team at Ceres."
