For the innovative power-to-gas-plant „WindGas Falkenhagen“ E.ON Gas Storage GmbH needed 24 shut-off valves approved for pure hydrogen service and designed for tightness over a long operational period. Hartmann Valves was able to design and deliver true metal sealing ball valves meeting these excessive demands. Since commissioning in 2013 they successfully help assuring maximum safety and plant availability.
“Pure hydrogen is a challenging fluid. We have decided to use true metal sealing valves because in technical respect this is the best and safest alternative“, says Dr. Helge Föcker, Project Manager Storage Facilities & Project Management, E.ON Gas Storage GmbH.
Power-to-gas Power-to-gas is a process to convert electricity produced by renewables into chemical energy. As one of the first companies worldwide E.ON Gas Storage GmbH demonstrates in Falkenhagen, Germany a way how renewable energy can be stored in the natural gas grid in order to make production independent from consumption. In the demonstration project electricity and water are converted via electrolysis in up to 360 Nm3/h hydrogen which is then fed into the gas grid.
About HARTMANN VALVES GmbH HARTMANN VALVES GmbH belongs to the leading manufacturers in the areas of ball valves, pigging valves, and wellhead components with a worldwide presence in the crude oil, natural gas, petrochemical, power plant technology, geothermal and other renewable energies. Construction, assembling and tests are performed exclusively at the German factories in Celle and Burgdorf-Ehlershausen.
