With this latest contract, McPhy is confirming the efficiency of its range of McLyzer generators for competitively-priced on-site production of the hydrogen required for cooling circuits to operate in thermal power plants.

La Motte Fanjas, 19 July 2017 – McPhy, the designer, manufacturer and integrator of hydrogen equipment for the energy, transport and industrial sectors, is supporting its partner ThyssenKrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers (TKUCE), specialized in comprehensive high-yield electrolysis solutions and technologies, to renovate a thermal power plant in Lebanon.

With this project, McPhy will be supplying two McLyzer 10-10 generators to equip the cooling systems for the plant’s alternators, while TKUCE will be in charge of engineering.

Strong market growth for on-site hydrogen production equipment

The market for on-site hydrogen production equipment for Power Plant Cooling applications is growing strongly, particularly in emerging regions where hydrogen logistics infrastructures are relatively underdeveloped, which can make their supply costs very high. By replacing deliveries of hydrogen cylinder, McPhy’s solutions are making it possible to ensure reliable supplies, while creating value for their users, which can produce hydrogen for lower costs.

With a unit capacity of 10 kg of hydrogen delivered at a pressure of 10 bar, the McLyzers that will be deployed at the Lebanese thermal power station will produce hydrogen for injection into its alternator cooling circuit.

For this contract, the Group will be capitalizing on its expert logistics capabilities for export projects.

McPhy, which delivered a first McLyzer 10-10 to the Chinese thermal power station CPI Zaoquan (Ningxia region) at the start of 2017, is confirming its deployment on the high-potential market for on-site hydrogen production.
