Flexible pipeline systems for hydrogen transportation and distribution

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. This significant milestone has a major impact on the feasibility of hydrogen, and is a new step towards 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.

Main advantages:

  • Operating pressure of 42 bar
  • No permeation
  • Fully certified
  • Non-metallic fitting system

Main advantages compared to steel:

  • No hydrogen embrittlement
  • No corrosion
  • Fully flexible
  • Easy and quick to install

Pipe Types

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.

All SoluForce solutions comply with international standards (including API and ISO). Visit our track record page for more information on various SoluForce applications.

SoluForce 3D Render H2T

Hydrogen Tight (H2T)

Reinforced with synthetic fibre, SoluForce H2T has a MOP of 42 bar/ 609 psi for hydrogen applications. Being fully metal-free, it is ideal for even the toughest applications and can be installed anywhere. It is the industries only true permeation tight FCP system.

SoluForce Benefits: This is why! A selection of the most important benefits of the SoluForce system.

SoluForce Fitting Solutions

High performance fitting solution, providing reliable connectability.

The SoluForce Fittings Systems

For hydrogen applications, the electrofusion fittings are the system of choice. This system is completely non-metallic (the hydrogen never comes into contact with the metal parts), eliminating hydrogen embrittlement.

The fittings are easy and quick to install with 100% traceability. Various flanges are available.

SoluForce 3D Render Electro Fusion end fitting

Electrofusion fittings

The non-metallic fittings and connectors used with the SoluForce Light, Classic and Heavy systems rely on electrofusion. Electrofusion requires only limited equimpent and crew to create a safe connection. It's quick and proven to be maintenance-free and durable.

Multiple flange ratings are available. All steel parts can be produced according to your material specifications.

Service and Support
SoluForce fittings and connectors are easy to install and need only limited crew and equipment. Installations can be supported by a SoluForce technician or a local contractor can be trained to install the system.
