• Implementation project commissioned for 5 MW hydrogen generation plant
  • Planned completion in Pfeffenhausen in second half of 2023
  • Green hydrogen to be used for regional public transport

Power-to-gas solution underpins sustainable energy transition

As the operating company tasked with green hydrogen generation for the HyPerformer model region HyBayern, which is funded by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV), Hy2B Wasserstoff GmbH has appointed Kraftanlagen Energies & Services GmbH as the general contractor for the construction of a 5 MW hydrogen generation plant encompassing an electrolyser, compression and filling station, electricity supply system and the requisite auxiliary facilities.


Rapid delivery of green mobility

Construction of the hydrogen plant is due to start in Autumn 2022, promptly followed by the installation of the electrolyser and system technology. Commissioning is planned for the second quarter of 2023, with commercial operations scheduled to start in the second half of the year. Using regional green electricity, the electrolyser is anticipated to produce an average of 1,200 kilograms of green hydrogen per day, compress the gas to up to 450 bar and pump it to a filling station and into a hydrogen trailer with a capacity of 1,250 kg. The green hydrogen will be delivered to two bus and truck filling stations in the districts of Munich and Ebersberg, which in turn will supply the regional transport hydrogen fuel cell buses.

In the words of Alfons Weber, CEO of Kraftanlagen Energies & Services GmbH: “We are delighted that as the general contractor for the power-to-gas facility, we now also have the opportunity to bring the hydrogen know-how we have developed over the years into this Bavarian future-oriented project. Together with our client Hy2B, we are creating with this project a watershed in terms of sustainable energy transition. It is important that we start constructing P2G plants now in order to achieve the ambitious target of 10 GW by 2030 set by the Federal Government.”


Tried and tested electrolysis technology

Kraftanlagen has commissioned a longstanding partner, Norwegian manufacturer NEL, to produce key components of the alkaline electrolyser. The plant concept, pipeline planning, installation layout, process technology and commissioning will fall within the remit of Kraftanlagen’s P2G group. Michael Klamt, head of P2G and project manager at Kraftanlagen Energies & Services, explains: “As the general contractor, we have an overview of the entire project value chain from planning to implementation. In addition to the technical solution, the ambitious schedule is also particularly challenging given that with this project we want to be amongst the first.”

Kraftanlagen Energies & Services is expanding its office capacity at the Haiming branch with a new building. This investment in the future is an expression of the company’s growth strategy as a general contractor in industrial services. The ground-breaking ceremony took place on 4 November.

Integral solution provider in plant construction grows

A ground-breaking ceremony with high-ranking representatives of local politics and business today in Haiming gave the official go-ahead for a further expansion of Kraftanlagen’s presence in the ChemDelta. With its holistic service portfolio consisting of engineering, manufacturing and assembly, Kraftanlagen Energies & Services GmbH (formerly Kraftanlagen München GmbH) looks after chemical and petrochemical plants throughout their entire life cycle: from planning and new construction to maintenance and repair, complex modernisation, shutdown and overhaul work and dismantling. The new office building now underway will allow the group to relocate its engineering subsidiary ECM from Burghausen to the Haiming branch. “The specialist areas of our Industry business unit continue to grow together and we also want to expand our business as a general contractor. ECM is coming to Haiming. This will allow us to have the concentrated expertise of our engineering, manufacturing and assembly teams under one roof. We are convinced that this step will benefit our projects and thus also our customers, who can get everything from Kraftanlagen from a single source if they wish,” says Alfons Weber, COO Kraftanlagen Energies & Services.

Over 2000 m² of new office space

The last new office building was constructed at the site in 2010. Its expansion is scheduled for completion in February 2023. More than 2000 m2 of new office space will then be available, almost doubling the size of the new building, which will allow for an increase of around 100 state-of-the-art workplaces at the site. The sustainable energy supply of the new building is based, among other things, on a photovoltaic system (50 kWp) and an energy storage system (60 kWh). There will also be four charging columns for Kraftanlagen’s growing e-vehicle fleet in Haiming, where Kraftanlagen Energies & Services already uses several electric pool vehicles.

“This expansion stage had been planned for some time. We are very pleased that the new eco-friendly building with our new logo is now becoming a reality,” says Stéphane Stoll, CEO Kraftanlagen Energies & Services. “It is our ambition to actively participate in the development of this beautiful region through the jobs we create.”

In June, we had the pleasure of welcoming two high-ranking visitors to our construction site in Leuna. On 23 June, Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier visited the Leuna chemical site and InfraLeuna to kick off his series of visits entitled “Industrial Lighthouses in Eastern Germany”. Already on 1 June, Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister of Finance Olaf Scholz took an interest in the development on site. In addition to the future technology of the biochemistry and hydrogen sectors located here, both politicians also paid attention to the ongoing modernisation of the energy system at this important European chemical site.
