Haffner Energy launches a new phase of development of Hynoca, its unique technology for decarbonization and production of green hydrogen and renewable gas by thermolysis of biomass. The innovations deployed will make it possible to increase the hydrogen production capacities of each module while reducing the footprint on the customer site.
In this context, Haffner Energy has just signed with R-Hynoca, a joint venture created with the company ENR (Réseau Energies Renouvelables), itself a subsidiary of the Strasbourg energy company R-GDS, an amendment to the contract concluded in July 2020.
The initial contract provided for the assembly and installation in 2021 of a pilot module with a production capacity of 11 kg of hydrogen per hour, then those, in 2022, of two additional modules for a total production of the 3 modules. of 33 kg of hydrogen per hour in mid-2023.
The amendment signed on May 31, 2022 now provides for the supply to R-Hynoca of 2 modules producing a total of 30 kg of hydrogen per hour instead of the 3 initially planned for the same capacity. These modules will be delivered to the R-GDS site at the end of 2023. With more efficient technology, they will also make it possible to meet the space constraints of the R-GDS site.
In the meantime, Haffner Energy will install a new generation module in Strasbourg on which tests will be carried out until the 1st quarter of 2023. The two demonstration modules will be gradually moved to the future test and research and development station of Haffner Energy whose location is being identified.
In accordance with the strategy presented during its IPO on February 14, 2022, Haffner Energy is accelerating its investments in ‘R&D’ to offer its customers, industrial consumers of hydrogen or gas as well as players in clean mobility, ever more effective technological solutions meeting the strategic needs of Europe’s energy independence combined with the acceleration of its decarbonisation.
