A global first, hydrogen application of Flexible Composite Pipe

Together with Groningen Seaports, SoluForce has developed a Flexible Composite Pipe system for hydrogen applications up to 42 bar. The SoluForce Hydrogen Tight solution will be used at Groningen Seaports, as an infrastructure to distribute green hydrogen produced by wind mills in the North sea to companies in the chemical and industrial sectors in the Eemshaven.

“As Groningen Seaports, we play an active role in making the industry in the Northern Netherlands greener and more sustainable. Through the collaboration with SoluForce we have been able to develop and install a piping system that is cheaper than the alternative, steel. In this way we contribute to the acceleration of the energy transition” – Groningen Seaports.

Benefits:

  • No hydrogen embrittlement
  • Significant cost reductions compared to (steel) alternatives
  • The world’s only certified spoolable Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe for hydrogen applications
  • Fully flexible and easy to install
