International Conference and Exhibition
Hydrogen Russia & CIS
20-21 October 2021, Moscow
20-21 October 2021, Moscow
International Conference and Exhibition ‘Hydrogen Russia and CIS’ is a unique professional and exclusive event to discuss current trends in the hydrogen industry with investment projects managers, representatives of flagship companies, regulatory authorities, suppliers of equipment and technology for hydrogen production, use, storage, and transportation.
Railway communication with the use of hydrogen fuel cell trains
In 2019, Rosatom, Russian Railways and TMH signed the agreement on cooperation in theorganisation of railway communication with the use of hydrogen fuel cells trains. Within this projectRosatom will supply hydrogen, fuel cells, and other key equipment. A test site to implement theagreement between Rosatom, RZD and TMH will be located in the Sakhalin region.
Hydrogen cluster on Sakhalin Island
Recently, the Government of the Sakhalin region has been considering the establishment of anentire hydrogen cluster on the island that will allow to export hydrogen to Asian countries. Thecore of the cluster will be a research and development centre of hydrogen energy that will be basedin the Sakhalin State University. The project will be implemented with the participation of theRussian Academy of Sciences. According to experts, Sakhalin has natural gas, surplus capacity of theenergy system, and a large wind potential necessary for the successful implementation of thisproject.
Production of methane-hydrogen mixtures, construction of transportation infrastructure
Gazprom intends to develop its own technologies to produce methane-hydrogen mixtures andhydrogen from methane without carbon dioxide emissions. The company also wants to build theinfrastructure necessary for the product transportation. In December last year, Gazprom
announced that it would create a special company to implement projects in this segment – GazpromVodorod (Hydrogen). The company also has plans to build a hydrogen production plant in Germany,near the Nord Stream-2 exit to the shore. The choice of location in this case is not accidental: at theend of February, it became known that Gazprom and the German Wintershall were workingtogether on a technology for producing hydrogen using methane pyrolysis, and the Russian-GermanChamber of Commerce created a special working group.
Pilot project at Kolskaya NPP
A pilot project to construct infrastructure for the development of hydrogen energy technologies andelectrolysis production is to be implemented at Kolskaya NPP. It will help solve the energy surpluschallenge in the Murmansk region. In the next two-three years Rosatom intends to use about 1.5MW of nuclear power plant capacity for electrolysis production, within five to seven years – about 4MW, and by 2030 – 500 MW. The state corporation estimates that 1 MW of electric capacity allowsto create around 200 cubic meters of hydrogen per hour (about 158 tonnes per year). According toRosatom, this volume of hydrogen will be enough to implement, for example, pilot regionaltransport programmes in big cities.
Green hydrogen production at a wind power plant in the Murmansk region
Rusnano and Enel Russia intend to implement Russia’s first project on green hydrogen production ata wind power plant in the Murmansk region. It is planned to produce 12 thousand tonnes ofhydrogen per year and to export it to the EU; the investment is estimated at $320 million. Thebase for production will be the Enel Russia wind power plant (WPP) with a capacity of 201 MW thatis under construction in the Murmansk region (commissioning – December 2021, but delays arepossible). The general company is building it under a power supply contract for renewable energysources (DPM, it guarantees an increased return on investment through the wholesale energymarket).
Hydrogen supply from Russia to Japan
In the next two months, the state corporation Rosatom is planning to complete the preparation of afeasibility study for the supply of hydrogen from Russia to Japan. In September 2019, in TokyoRusatom Overseas and the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy of the Ministry of Economy,Trade and Industry of Japan signed the agreement on cooperation in the field of joint developmentof a feasibility study in 2020-2021 for a pilot project for the hydrogen export from Russia to Japan. Apilot export project considers the possibility of producing hydrogen for the Japanese market byelectrolysis. Rosatom prepares a feasibility study for the supply of hydrogen from Russia to Japantogether with the Japanese authorities and Kawasaki company.
