    Strohm, Siemens Gamesa partner on offshore wind-to-hydrogen transfer

    December 7, 2021 - SeeNews Renewables


      December 7 (Renewables Now) - Dutch composite pipe technology company Strohm will collaborate with wind turbine maker Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:IBE) on developing transfer solutions for hydrogen generated in offshore wind turbines.

      In this decentralised green hydrogen concept power cables are replaced by a pipe infrastructure, Strohm explained on Tuesday as it announced the memorandum of understanding with the turbine manufacturer. Siemens Gamesa will have a technical advisory role, it said.

      Siemens Gamesa has been working for a while on the idea of integrating an electrolyser into an offshore wind turbine, which could reduce capex and increase system efficiency and wind farm uptime.

      “Strohm has supported us through several case studies, identifying the solutions that can be readily used which complement our own systems,” noted Finn Daugaard Madsen, innovation manager – Power to X at Siemens Gamesa.

      Strohm designs and produces thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP). According to its chief commercial officer, Martin van Onna, “[t]he key attributes of TCP - flexibility, no corrosion or maintenance requirements - allow for the most cost-effective infrastructure on a given wind farm.”

      Strohm, whose shareholders include Aker Solutions, Chevron Technology Ventures and Shell Ventures, recently also announced a collaboration on offshore wind-to-hydrogen transfer solutions with Norwegian subsea infrastructure engineering firm Seanovent Engineering AS.
