Siemens and Engie prepare 12 MW green hydrogen as well as gas project in France
A EUR15.2 million power-to-X-to-power hydrogen storage center is being planned in Saillat-sur-Vienne, in Nouvelle-Aquitaine. The project partners want to utilize renewable energy from the grid and water to produce and save electrolyzed hydrogen. It would then be blended with gas to power an updated, 12 MW Siemens SGT-400 industrial gas turbine which previously created vapor for neighborhood production as well as would have the ability to return power to the grid to satisfy need.
