Germany-based Schaeffler is presenting its innovations for the production of green hydrogen at the Connecting Green Hydrogen Europe trade fair, which is currently taking place until 27 June a the IFEMA Madrid in Spain (Stand H24). The event has brought together experts and decision-makers from the hydrogen industry to discuss the latest trends and technologies, and Schaeffler is showcasing its new 1MW Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysis stack.

Schaeffler’s PEM stacks, which feature a power rating of up to 1,000kW, are currently being introduced to the market; they can produce up to 500kg of high-purity hydrogen per day.

Florian Windisch, head of hydrogen at Schaeffler Bearings and Industrial Solutions, said: “We provide key systems and components to make hydrogen technology future-proof. Our PEM electrolysis stacks are crucial sub-systems for sustainable and efficient hydrogen production.”

Schaeffler is committed to a CO2-neutral, sustainable future and also recognises the enormous potential of green hydrogen in this context. The motion technology company considers the entire spectrum of applications — from the industrial production of green hydrogen via electrolysis to the use of hydrogen in fuel cells for both mobile and stationary applications, and even the production of green steel.

The Schaeffler PEM electrolysis stacks are versatile and suitable for various industrial applications. By arranging the stacks in so-called arrays, Schaeffler can offer to the market flexible and powerful solutions ranging from 50kW to multi-MW scales.

Mr Windisch concluded: “Our long-standing industrialisation expertise helps us turn innovations into efficient series production, thereby contributing to the creation of the conditions and capabilities necessary for scaling up hydrogen technology.” At Schaeffler’s headquarters in Herzogenaurach, the industrial series production of stacks is currently being established.

With its core competencies in precise forming, joining and coating technology, and automated assembly technology by using processes and standards applicable for mass production, Schaeffler focuses on key pre-requisites for hydrogen technology.
