What is your company’s biggest achievement?

For the last decades, the Rhine-Ruhr-Region in NRW has undergone a fundamental structural change – from coal, iron and heavy industries to logistics, science and value add. While this successful structural change has not even come to an end yet, we are already faced with the next fundamental change of our industry: The Energy Transition and the transformation of the Port of Duisburg to a Central Energy Hub for New Energies.

We know Change and Transition.

Benefitting from our unparalleled multimodal logistics network across Europe, we are today developing the Hydrogen, Ammonia, Methanol and CO2 Infrastructure of the future. Local hydrogen production by electrolyzer facilities at the port help decarbonizing public and private local traffic as well as local communities. Transforming port and terminal infrastructure to facilitate climate neutral operation is part of our corporate responsibility.

Over the years Nikkiso expanded operations, organically and via acquisition, leveraging its fluid control and precision engineering expertise to develop innovative solutions across various industries, including aerospace, industrial gases and clean energy.  In 2023, Nikkiso CE&IG successfully acquired and integrated Cryotec GmbH, extending the Company’s presence in Europe and enhancing its product portfolio to include CO2 purification and liquefaction systems.

Nikkiso CE&IG is known for its strong record of producing safe, reliable, and high-quality products.  In the industrial market, the Company’s products support production, transportation, and storage of liquefied gases, including CH4, H2, CO2, NH3 and air gases.

What is your company’s biggest achievement?

One of Nikkiso CE&IG’s most notable achievements is its pioneering work and leadership supporting the National Hydrogen Fuel Initiative and the California Hydrogen Highways Plan in the US. Starting in 2005, Nikkiso CE&IG developed some of the earliest hydrogen refueling stations – soon to be 20 stations in South Korea and the US, with more to come.

Nikkiso CE&IG is committed to delivering low-cost, standardized, and replicable advanced “hydrogen fueling stations for the future” that can meet commercial-scale needs for hydrogen fueling for both medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks. Focused on reducing boil-off gas losses through innovative technology, combined with reliable, efficient, high-pressure and high-capacity cryogenic pumping systems, Nikkiso CE&IG is a standout in the industry.

In addition to the Company’s ground transportation capabilities, it was the first to develop and deliver pressure-building, heat exchanger skid to transfer cryogenics to the Suiso Frontier, enabling the world’s first LH2 shipping from Australia to Japan.

Nikkiso CE&IG has also developed two patent-pending technologies to support its hydrogen liquefaction capabilities. The Company can offer lower specific power and wider turndown to enhance the producer’s ability to maximize operation uptime and production tax credits, such as the 45V in the US.

These achievements reflect Nikkiso’s commitment to innovation, excellence, and sustainability in clean energy and industrial gases.

We’re delighted to welcome Vattenfall as an Exhibitor at World Hydrogen 2024. We spoke with them and they gave us an overview of the company, shared their biggest achievements and what they’re looking forward to at the event. Meet with them at Stand C154!

Tell us how your company started & evolved into what it is today?

Vattenfall is one of Europe’s leading integrated energy companies. For more than 100 years we have electrified industries, supplied energy to people’s homes and modernised our way of living through innovation and cooperation. Across all areas of our diversified portfolio, we are working for fossil freedom. We are committed to building a future where everyone can choose fossil-free ways to move, make, and live.

Our Wind business area is a cornerstone to Vattenfall’s overall strategy of reaching fossil freedom with the power of renewables. We are a key player in the European wind industry with approximately 6 GW of wind energy in operation. Our core markets across Northwestern Europe have been founder countries of offshore wind and belong to the most mature markets today, allowing for proven allocation frameworks and swift site development.

Fossil-free hydrogen will play a crucial role in the decarbonization of the energy system in Europe’s path towards net-zero. Today, leveraging our valuable setup as an integrated utility, strong industry track-record, expertise and understanding of the market, and long-standing partnerships, Vattenfall is ideally positioned to build end-to-end value chains with hydrogen playing a key role.

What is your company’s biggest achievement?

Vattenfall is driving the development of hydrogen applications as a pioneer in several projects. One such project is HYBRIT (Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology) – a collaboration between steel producer SSAB, mining company LKAB, and Vattenfall. This joint initiative started in 2016 and focuses on producing steel using hydrogen rather than coal. The aim is to decarbonise the steel industry by replacing the coking coal (traditionally used in steel production to convert iron ore to iron) with hydrogen made from fossil-free electricity (primarily wind power) and water. In July 2021, SSAB Oxelösund rolled the first steel produced using HYBRIT technology, i.e., reduced by 100% fossil-free hydrogen instead of coal and coke, with good results. And in 2022, SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall inaugurated HYBRIT’s pilot facility for fossil-free hydrogen gas storage at Svartöberget in Luleå, Sweden.

Other Vattenfall projects and key collaborations include a partnership with the refinery and fuel company, Preem with the purpose of using fossil-free hydrogen for large-scale biofuel production and a partnership with energy group, St1 to conduct a feasibility study with the ambition to develop a fossil-free value chain for production of electro fuel through offshore wind. In the partnership, Vattenfall aims to develop an offshore wind power-based hydrogen supply infrastructure on the west coast of Sweden.

Today, Vattenfall BA Wind is actively working to develop innovative solutions to decarbonise industries across the communities we operate in Europe as well our own operations. As one of the leading producers of electricity from fossil-free energy sources, especially from offshore wind, we are able to supply large quantities of fossil-free electricity for the production of hydrogen. We see a compelling business case between hydrogen production and our power generation.

What makes your company stand out in the hydrogen/energy industry?

In an emerging hydrogen market, the de-risking and offtake of projects and development of technology on an industrial scale will be key. Vattenfall stands out because of our strong, longstanding partnerships, local industry knowledge, trust with local authorities, and competencies in complex project management that we have from being pioneers in the energy market. At Vattenfall we are perfectly positioned to leverage our experience, such as the work we’re doing in Sweden, to play a strong role by connecting and facilitating all necessary players and levers along end-to-end hydrogen value chains.

What are you most looking forward to at World Hydrogen 2024 Summit & Exhibition?

At the World Hydrogen 2024 Summit, we look forward to participating in a panel discussion on Partnerships with the industry to Enable the Hydrogen Economy. Vattenfall will also deliver a technical presentation on hydrogen production. At our booth, we look forward to having meetings with industry stakeholders to discuss synergies and partnership opportunities across the hydrogen value chain to leverage our position as an integrated company and enable cost efficiencies. We welcome business meeting opportunities to explore collaborative offshore and onshore hydrogen projects.
