Scana company enters green hydrogen collaboration
Scana-owned PSW Power & Automation and Westgass Hydrogen enter a strategic collaboration aimed towards deployment of container-based hydrogen fuel cell systems for power applications. The initiative is a major step towards securing continuous investment in environmentally friendly energy production and underpins Scana’s overall ambition of accelerating the green energy transition by being a driver in electrification and emission reduction solutions.
The two companies will collaborate on the piloting, marketing and sales of hydrogen-based solutions for power generation in off-grid and on-grid locations. Preliminary areas of interest will be the deployment of fuel-cell generators in land-based applications including, but not limited to, shore power systems for the marine industry, construction, aquaculture, and grid support.
Westgass Hydrogen will be responsible for the sourcing and delivery of green hydrogen for such applications and PSW will be responsible for the delivery of electricity generation and control solutions. The parties will look to leverage each other’s network to collaborate with other relevant technical and/or service providers where applicable.
Adding hydrogen energy production to our product portfolio is an important step for PSW Power & Automation and advances our vision to be the leading supplier of clean power solutions both in on-grid and off-grid solutions.
“Decarbonization is inevitable, and at Westgass Hydrogen we are convinced that hydrogen will play a central role in creating a better future – both environmentally and economically. We are looking forward to working with PSW Power & Automation on upcoming hydrogen power solutions,” says Kinar Kent, CEO of Westgass Hydrogen.
“Scana regards hydrogen and the collaboration with Westgass Hydrogen as a major step forward in our strategy to supply the market with emission reducing solutions,” says Styrk Bekkenes, CEO of Scana.
