ABO Wind plans hydrogen drive
Wind farm in Kirchheim will power electrolyzer to make clean vehicle fuel
ABO Wind is commissioning a 9.9MW wind farm in Germany that will provide power to an electrolyzer to generate hydrogen fuel for vehicles.
The wind farm in Kirchheim, which consists of three Nordex N131 turbines, will power a demonstration project that will be installed next year at a filling station. It will be capable of fuelling two to four cars a day.
ABO Wind is partnering with H2BZ Hessen, MoWiN.net and petrol station operator Frank Roth on the project.
ABO Wind hopes funding will be made available from the National Organization for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology to increase fuel cell output to 2MW, which would raise the daily fuelling capacity to 200 cars a day.
