Project Description

ELICAN Turbine

The Challenge

H2Heat strives to show the benefits and cost-effectiveness of using hydrogen for hospital heating and to create a replicable business model for its use. 

The solution involves a 1MW electrolyser to produce highly combustible H2 from marine-based renewable energy. Once transported from the production facility to the CHUIMI hospital, the project will use an innovative H2-CHP and heat pump combined system to deliver heat energy.

H2Heat has engaged NeoDyne to design the electrical infrastructure (substation) for the electrolyser and deliver a robust control system for H2 production. The project’s sophisticated energy management system (EMS), demand management system (DMS), and SCADA technology must ensure optimal efficiency and performance.

Our Role

NeoDyne will work with the 11-party consortium to design the electrical connection between the wind turbine’s interface and the electrolyser, specifying the equipment for transmission & distribution and using the green electrons from the ELICAN turbine.

NeoDyne will also play a key role in optimising the operation of the electrolyser, CHP and heat pump. The goal is to optimise the electrolyser’s operating hours to maximise renewable energy penetration in the system. This design will be based on a simulation of the wind turbine’s expected input and output and a balance between the grid and wind supply.

Additionally, NeoDyne will design and deliver the overall control system incorporating the Energy Management System (EMS), PLC and SCADA development.

About H2Heat

H2Heat, a 5-year EU-funded project, sets the Canary Islands on a groundbreaking journey towards a sustainable and renewable energy future. The project aims to generate and deliver green hydrogen for heating.

The consortium led by PLOCAN (the Canary Islands Ocean Platform), in partnership with the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS), will generate heat for CHUIMI, a large hospital in Gran Canaria. Once the technology and supply chain are proven, the critical infrastructure will be replicated at all hospitals on the island.
