“Our project delivers electricity and grid services. No fuel. Hydrogen is used as storage in our Renewstable power plants,” said Nicolas Lecomte, director of Southern Africa for the French company. Renewstable is a non-intermittent renewable electricity power plant whose deployment will start in Namibia, and eventually in other African countries, such as Morocco, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.

HDF’s HyPower (Hydrogen To Power) solution are multi-MW fuel cell power plants producing electricity from low carbon and/or renewable hydrogen supplied by existing hydrogen infrastructures.

HyPower offers a viable and relevant alternative to fossil fuel power generation, achieving energy transition by producing green electricity on demand, complementing intermittent renewable energy sources. The clients are electrical utilities, private businesses willing to decarbonize their electrical supply and harbours for port infrastructure and shore power.
