World’s No. 2 Wind Turbine Company Set to Launch Hydrogen Pilot Project

  • Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA, the second largest wind turbine supplier in the world, plans to start a pilot project on using wind power to supply hydrogen
  • Company plans to conduct testing this fall and begin hydrogen production in January
  • Several wind energy companies have announced their intent to couple turbines with electrolyzers for zero emission separation of hydrogen

The second largest wind turbine supplier in the world has announced plans for a pilot project to produce hydrogen via wind energy. Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA intends to test the process this fall in Denmark and begin producing hydrogen in January.

Hydrogen offers an option for a clean-burning fuel, since it leaves only water vapor when it is combusted. However, the electrolyzing process to split hydrogen atoms from water can itself produce carbon emissions. By completing this work with wind turbines, it can become a zero emissions process.

The Danish wind company Orsted, which is working to transform State Pier in New London, Connecticut into a heavy-lift capable port capable of supporting work involved in offshore wind projects, said last year that it also intends to combine hydrogen electrolysis with its wind projects. Other wind companies have also signaled that they will adopt this approach.
