A significant milestone with a major impact on the feasibility of (green) hydrogen
We are in the middle of a major energy transition, requiring cost effective, reliable and safe solutions. Renewable energies are becoming more important and, consequently, the share of renewable energy (i.e. wind, solar) is increasing in order to meet the climate targets. Hydrogen is one of the most versatile energy bearing substances, and will not only play an important role as a decarbonized energy carrier, but it will also provide a buffer function, making renewable energy a more viable solution.
Our mission is to revolutionize the way energy is transported, by offering solutions that help cut cost and make operations safe, durable and efficient. The SoluForce Hydrogen Tight system makes a significant contribution to the future of the hydrogen value chain and will accelerate the energy transition.
SoluForce has developed a spoolable Reinforced Thermoplastic industrial Piping system (RTP, also known as FCP) for hydrogen applications. The SoluForce FCP has been certified for hydrogen applications up to 42 bar of operating pressure. Unique in the world of hydrogen transport and a global first. With a significantly lower CO2 eq. footprint compared to alternatives, this ready to use pipeline solution has a major impact on the feasibility of (green) hydrogen and a sustainable energy mix.
First application of the SoluForce Hydrogen solution will be at Groningen Seaports, where four kilometres (2.5 miles) of SoluForce infrastructure will be installed. This infrastructure will ultimately distribute green hydrogen produced by wind mills in the North sea to companies in the chemical and industrial sectors in the Eemshaven.
SoluForce Flexible Composite Pipe (FCP also known as Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe or RTP) solutions are comprehensive yet economic. For example, you can opt for pipes-and-fittings only, or extend this with a range of services and support.
These include installation equipment for rent or purchase, and training of international and local workforces in the use of the SoluForce system. All so you can speed up installation and reduce your labour needs – safely. We can also assist you with project management and help you find the right people for your project. Or a combination of the above.
Because the SoluForce system can be completely non-metallic, including the fitting system, they are scaling- and corrosion free. All SoluForce pipe systems have a smooth bore, which ensures a much lower flow-resistance and improved flow capacity. Moreover, their resistance to third party interference, earthquakes and landslides has been extensively proven and verified.
High performance fitting solution, providing reliable connectability.
Multiple flange ratings are available. All steel parts can be produced according to your material specifications.
