Strohm, a manufacturer of fully bonded, Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP), has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.
The collaboration will focus on developing hydrogen transfer solutions that improve the decentralised green hydrogen concept, whereby green hydrogen is generated in each wind turbine generator and transported to shore by a subsea pipe infrastructure. In this concept power cables are replaced by a pipe infrastructure, storing and transferring hydrogen. Siemens Gamesa has a technical advisory role. Siemens Gamesa is already developing a decentralised offshore solution, that fully integrates an electrolyser into an offshore wind turbine. TCP does not require any maintenance and is suitable for over 30 years in operation.
