Vienna has its first inexperienced hydrogen plant

The power will be ready to energy 60 buses each day

Wien-Simmering: Vienna’s first inexperienced hydrogen plant is already a actuality. This now makes the Austrian capital a express the put inexperienced hydrogen, generally thought about the vitality source of the future, as a express that could well also concurrently assemble, retailer and utilize the substance.

The capacity of the brand new plant is 1,300 kilograms of inexperienced hydrogen each day. The amount produced on every day basis can thus be feeble to gasoline up to 60 buses or automobiles. Straight next to the H2 technology plant, Wien Energie is also inserting any other H2 filling set into operation for buses and automobiles. 

Cornerstone in the regional hydrogen economy

The new hydrogen plant is handiest a step in the total roadmap by the Wiener Stadtwerke Neighborhood (the Vienna express infrastructural public firm) to provide a inexperienced hydrogen economy in eastern Austria.

For one, inexperienced hydrogen could be the gasoline of the future and the nation’s first bus line to maneuver fully on this could occasionally even be Line 39A in the capital metropolis. Its buses will be smooth of hydrogen-powered buses from next yr.

Because of gradients, short cease distances and excessive passenger volumes, here is one among basically the most annoying traces in the metropolis, which is why hydrogen buses are notably stunning for this route,” reports Gudrun Senk, Wiener Linien’s managing director for the technical express.

Other than the field of public transit, on the choice hand, inexperienced hydrogen finds other capabilities in life as properly. Some non-public logistics companies are already filling up with inexperienced hydrogen at Wien Energie’s H2 filling stations, including IKEA Austria. 

What’s more, Wien Energie added hydrogen to natural gasoline on the Donaustadt energy plant as fragment of an operational trial. The experiment was once the first of its kind on the earth at an operating energy plant of this size. The functionality of this express of ​​utility is gargantuan: unbiased by adding 15 percent hydrogen, 33,000 an total bunch CO2 could well also very properly be saved yearly.
