Technip Energies and its affiliates Kanfa and Inocean have launched ‘GO.H2 by T.EN,’ a suite of carbon-free solutions for green hydrogen production.
The solutions – based on renewable power sources such as wind and solar – are flexible, with building blocks tailored to meet clients’ needs.

The company can provide an offshore facility that is a fixed structure or a floater. Green hydrogen would be produced using a seawater desalination unit, followed by electrolysis, and exported to shore by a pipeline or offloaded to a vessel.

For harsher environments, the substructure can be a spar or a semi-submersible. For high capacities and further from shore, green hydrogen could be converted using an ammonia or a liquid organic hydrogen carrier unit and transferred to a floating storage and offloading vessel.
“By adding hydrogen storage and fuel cells, the facility ensures a stable and continuous power supply for electrified oil and gas facilities powered by wind turbines,” said Technip Energies. “For smaller capacities, systems can be located on a floating offshore wind substructure or on a substation.

“Intermittency management is addressed from the design phase through adequate system architecture and technology components, power and hydrogen storage and control strategies. In operations, an energy management system enables online production optimisation through predictive control models.”

Technip Energies senior vice president carbon-free solutions Laure Mandrou said, “With more than 50 years of experience in hydrogen and an extensive expertise in offshore, GO.H2 by T.EN illustrates our commitment to the journey towards a low-carbon future.”
