Vortex Energy commences drilling program at Robinsons River salt project
Vortex Energy announced that the diamond core drilling has now commenced at its Robinsons River Salt Project located near Stephenville, Newfoundland & Labrador. The two core wells that will be drilled are located at the East and West salt structures of the project, which were identified during the H2 storage capacity assessment.
INNIO Group to deliver H2 technology to power RAG Austria AG’s cogeneration plant
INNIO announced that RAG Austria AG has selected INNIO Group’s (INNIO) Jenbacher innovative H2 engine technology to power its H2 cogeneration plant in Gampern, Upper Austria. The combined heat and power plant will generate green power and heat.
H2Tech: Projects Update
India’s renewable energy ministry announced plans to commit approximately $4 B to commercialize a green H2 ecosystem in the country. The ministry’s roadmap focused on the developing infrastructure, materials and technologies to help boost green H2 production and distribution in India.
Hydrexia delivers magnesium-based solid-state containers for H2 storage
Hydrexia Holding Limited has completed the delivery of its first batch of magnesium-based solid-state containers for H2 storage and transportation. This product handout marks the first phase of an overall phased delivery plan through 2025.
Vortex Energy and the University Of Alberta collaborate on H2 and energy storage research
The U of A has agreed to perform laboratory and mathematical analyses with the intent of designing and implementing the first field trial of H2 storage in a domal salt in Canada at the Robinsons River Salt Project.
U.S. Department of Energy convenes bilateral engagement on geologic hydrogen
It is a common misconception that H2 does not exist as H2 in nature and that producing H2 requires splitting it from other molecules, such as methane or water. However, scientists have known for some time that H2 also occurs naturally, generated through geologic processes.
Rethinking hydrogen storage
During the H2 storage process, H2 can be stored at low- to high-pressure levels (0.5 bar–100 bar) and is fully compatible with any H2 production unit. Fluctuating production rates (depending on wind speed or solar irradiation) are of no concern as the storage process can adapt readily to changing H2 flows within wide ranges.
