The pilot project by Uniper produce hydrogen via water electrolysis, subsequently the hydrogen can be either fed into the natural gas grid, or used for methanation. This plant constitutes as one of the world's first demonstrations for storing energy in the natural gas grid.


• H2 production capacity: 32 kg/h


• H2 utilisation: 19 kg/h

• CO2 (biogenic) utilisation: 104 kg/h

• SNG1 production capacity: 41 kg/h
