Dutch hydrogen power plant

Akzo Nobel and NedStack, producer and developer of fuel cells, are investigating the feasibility of a power plant based on fuel cells. The power plant will probably be built next to the chlorine electrolysis plant in Botlek, the Netherlands. With a peak capacity of 200 MW, it will be the world’s largest fuel cell plant. Because only water vapour is released when hydrogen is used to generate power, many people regard hydrogen as the energy source of the future. In this project, the companies will jointly gather knowledge on a fuel cell plant linked to a chlorine electrolysis plant. Such a plant is characterised by a high output of more than 60% and zero emission, which means that in the generation of power only clean water is
emitted. The research project has been allotted three years. It is expected that the application of fuel cell technology in the production of chlorine could yield electrical power savings of approximately 20%. In addition, an important environmental gain will be achieved by limiting undesirable emissions. Akzo Nobel Base Chemicals, producer of chlorine, caustic soda, and hydrogen among other products, will supply the expertise on hydrogen and the electrolysis process. Akzo Nobel Energy, producer of electricity and steam, will contribute to the know-how on the generation of energy. NedStack will develop and produce fuel cells on the basis of
