Underground Sun Storage 2030 - Start

Planning, construction and commissioning – hydrogen production, underground hydrogen storage, hydrogen processing

Within the scope of this work package, a pilot plant for the storage of hydrogen in a depleted natural gas deposit is being planned, constructed and commissioned for the first time worldwide. The plant essentially consists of the sub-units hydrogen production (electrolysis), hydrogen compression, storage probe, hydrogen drying, hydrogen treatment (processing), connection lines and several ancillary facilities. For the planned plant in the municipal area of Gampern, Upper Austria, all necessary official permits have to be obtained. With this plant we want to demonstrate the seasonal large-volume storage of renewable energy in the form of hydrogen.
