MAN Energy Solutions will supply turbomachinery for liquid-air, energy-storage (LAES) to Highview Power’s CRYOBattery facility in Britain. Highview is building a 50 MW liquid-air, energy-storage facility – with a minimum of 250 MWh – at Carrington Village, Greater Manchester. The project is seen as “a litmus test for the future of zero-carbon storage technology.”
German carmaker Porsche, together with Siemens Energy, is developing the world’s first industry-scale synthetic fuels plant in Chile. The ‘Haru Oni’ pilot project uses wind farms around the city of Puntas Arenas to generate green hydrogen, which is then combined with CO2 filtered from the air in MAN Energy Solutions’ methanol reactor to produce methanol.
Royal Dutch Shell has just launched Europe’s largest PEM hydrogen electrolyser – called Refhyne – at its refinery in Rheinland, Germany, and already plans to scale up the 10 MW facility to 100 MW. At the Wesseling site of the refinery, Shell also aims to produce aviation fuel from renewables as well as bio-LNG.
