SEOUL, April 30 (Korea Bizwire) – SK Engineering & Construction Co., a leading South Korean builder, has launched a demonstration project for carbon emission-free hydrogen fuel cell power generation.
The company announced that it will establish a pure hydrogen solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power generation facility in collaboration with its affiliate SK Advanced Co., a specialist in the production of propylene, and U.S.-based Bloom Energy aimed at launching electricity production without emitting carbon dioxide.
The project aims to verify the power generation function of the pure hydrogen SOFC that uses the byproduct hydrogen generated during the propylene production process, and will be carried out on the site of SK Advanced’s propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Ulsan.
The three companies completed the installation of 100-kilowatt fuel cell power generation facilities and started running them on a full-scale basis earlier this month.
As part of the project, SK E&C will be responsible for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) as well as operations.
SK Advanced will provide the site and byproduct hydrogen, while Bloom Energy will be engaged in SOFC supply.
