    Siemens Energy receives H2-Ready certification for power plant concept

    November 16, 2021 - SeeNews Renewables


      November 16 (Renewables Now) - Munich-based testing, inspection and certification body Tuev Sued has certified a power plant concept by Siemens Energy AG (ETR:ENR) as H2 Ready, the parties announced today in a joint press release.

      Siemens Energy is the first company in the world to receive the new “hydrogen-ready” certification, which Tuev Sued developed to serve as a guideline describing how power plants can be converted over time to co-fire hydrogen or burn it pure.

      Siemens Energy secured the certification for a combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) concept, and says that it can be applied to a wide range of energy solutions.

      Tuev Sued is offering the certification to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) companies, with the expectation that it will increase investment security for utilities.

      “Our guideline enables OEMs, plant operators, and insurers to use a standard transparent framework”, says Reiner Block, CEO of the Industry Service Division at TÜV SÜD. “The certification covers a complete power plant with the relevant subsystems.”

      Karim Amin, Executive Vice President Generation at Siemens Energy, agrees and says: “Hydrogen is an important building-block for decarbonizing the energy supply. An independent certificate creates certainty for investments”.

      “If we design CCPPs today for future operation with hydrogen, they don’t just serve as a bridging technology to a CO2-free future, they’ll also make an important contribution to a reliable and affordable power supply in the long term,” adds Amin.
