Cooperation agreement on industrial scale hydrogenation plants

Frames Group B.V., Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies GmbH and MAN Energy Solutions SE enter a close cooperation in order to build large-scale hydrogen storage systems based on the innovative Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) technology.

Hydrogen is considered as the energy carrier of the future in a rapidly changing energy market. Since hydrogen can be produced on a large scale from renewable energies, it is the ideal medium for decarbonizing the energy, mobility and industrial sectors. However, the question of efficient hydrogen distribution remains open. The LOHC technology offers a safe and efficient solution for storing and distributing hydrogen on a large scale.

The new partners are ready to meet the needs for the future hydrogen market in respect to bulk hydrogen storage and transportation. As a first step, the companies have developed systems with hydrogen capacities of 5 and 12 tons per day. Such large hydrogen processing capacities will be crucial for the decarburisation of Europe's energy needs.  Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies is specialised in the development of the LOHC technology and thus contributes its core process know-how to the cooperation. Frames designs, builds, delivers systems and solutions in the upstream, downstream and renewable energy market and will be responsible for the overall realization of the hydrogenation plant. MAN Energy Solutions completes the consortium with its experience in design and fabrication of reactor systems for chemical and petrochemical applications. The company will deliver the reactor and related steam generator equipment to the projects.

“We see an increased demand for green fuels and are investing in the development of hydrogen solutions, like electrolysers and hydrogen storage. Hydrogen is the vital link in the energy transition”, says Frans Roozendaal – CEO at Frames. “At Frames, we convert process and control concepts into skid-mounted solutions. Although the oil & gas industry has historically been the target market, we have also seen a strong expansion of our renewables activities.”

Jordi Zonneveld, Product Specialist – Hydrogen at Frames is very pleased with the collaboration between Hydrogenious, MAN Energy Solutions and Frames: “With this partnership we are able to translate our customer’s sustainability ambitions into skid-mounted solutions.”

“We are very satisfied to have gained such important players from the plant engineering sector for this cooperation,” states Daniel Teichmann, CEO of Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies. “Since our technology uses the existing infrastructure for conventional fuels, it makes import and transportation of large amounts of green hydrogen, for example from Scandinavian wind parks to Central Europe, feasible. This partnership will contribute to creating a simple and efficient transport network for green energy at European and global level.”

“We strongly believe that the global goal to build a climate neutral economy largely depends on the future use of green hydrogen and other gases produced from renewable energy”, says Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions. “Hydrogen will play a crucial role in the decarbonisation of those sectors that cannot be electrified directly. The LOHC technology is a game changing and powerful innovation by a great company and this partnership is an important step to further build our profile with regards to a future hydrogen economy.”

Frames, MAN Energy Solutions and Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies are the right partners for scaling up the LOHC process and hence implementing the LOHC technology even more cost-effectively. As all three companies operate on a global level, this strong European consortium is well positioned for a worldwide realization of large-scale LOHC plants.
