Webinar: Unlocking the potential of hydrogen – Industry insights from hydrogen plant concept creation

When: Sept 5th 2024 | Where: online

Hydrogen safety

Hydrogen, known for its highly combustible nature, often raises concerns among the public. At Wärtsilä, we have dedicated two years to developing a hydrogen concept. Using appropriate safety features like compatible materials with hydrogen, automation control, we have successfully created a hydrogen plant concept based on natural gas plants. This framework has the potential to incorporate safety advancements.​

Development areas

There are still areas of development that we are actively addressing. High-pressure environments and the presence of large amounts of hydrogen require the development of components. Universities are currently researching new materials, including coatings, to mitigate hydrogen embrittlement and reduce costs. Additionally, we are exploring emerging technologies for leak detection to further enhance safety measures.​

By bringing together industry experts, researchers, and technology providers, we aim to foster collaboration and innovation in this domain. ​

Join the webinar

Join us for a webinar on September 5 from 10:00 to 11:00 (EEST), where we will explore the safe and economical utilization of hydrogen in plant operations.​ Sign up here.

We look forward to your participation in this webinar as we collectively explore the possibilities and solutions for enhancing hydrogen plant concepts. ​
