FGSZ Ltd has commissioned DNV to assess the suitability for partial to full hydrogen transport of one of FGSZ’s pipelines. The intention of this project is to evaluate the suitability of FGSZ’s DN600 system, consisting of a DN600 pipeline and valve station for hydrogen transportation. FGSZ has set up different scenarios to assess the implications of exchanging natural gas with up to 100% gaseous hydrogen.
As part of the European Green Deal, the EU has set itself a binding target of achieving climate neutrality by 2050. In this context, the EU Hydrogen Strategy provides guidelines and actions for how to kick-start the hydrogen economy. FGSZ is contributing to this strategy by examining the transportability of hydrogen and hydrogen mixtures in the Hungarian natural gas system.
FGSZ system will be a key to developing a large-scale hydrogen economy. This is according to DNV’s recent report ‘Rising to the Challenge of a Hydrogen Economy’, which explores the outlook for the emerging hydrogen economy, from production through to consumption.
