ITM Power supplies Japan with PEM-type H2 generator for the first time, says The Gas Review

In March of this year, a 1.4-megawatt (MW) PEM-type hydrogen generator was sold to Japanese company, Sumitomo Corporation by UK manufacturer, ITM Power, according to the Gas Review.

Due for installation later this year, the generator will be the first installation of ITM’s in Japan and has a hydrogen output capacity of 700 Nm3/h (nanometres cubed per hour) and will have a supply pressure of less than 1 MPa (Megapascal).

Sumitomo have a vested interest in hydrogen generation following a ‘Strategic Partnership Agreement on the Production of CO2-free Hydrogen’ signed with ITM in 2018, allowing Sumitomo to cultivate a monopoly on domestic sales and commercialisation of hydrogen.

Water electrolysis hydrogen generators of over 1 MW (MegaWatt) that operate domestically are all made in Japan and have been supplied for experimental purposes to verify energy.

The generator installed at Fukushima Hydrogen Energy Research Field was made by Asahi Kasei and has a maximum capacity of 10 MW (alkalic type capable of generating 2,000 Nm3/h
