Powering the Energy Transition: Hydrogen Production, Transportation and Usage

Hydrogen is one of the most promising new and emerging means for driving decarbonization and the energy transition. Building on decades of experience in processing hydrogen, Atlas Copco Gas and Process centrifugal turbocompressors and turboexpanders enable many critical processes throughout the hydrogen value chain.

Hydrogen Production

Hydrogen production can be realized in different ways. For example, by using technologies such as the Steam Methane Reformer (SMR), Autothermal Reforming (ATR), or electrolysis. From hydrocarbon-dominant grey hydrogen sources to increasingly sustainable “blue” and “green” hydrogen, Atlas Copco Gas and Process designs centrifugal compressors and expanders engineered to rise to the challenges of hydrogen production.

Hydrogen Transportation

One economically viable method to enable hydrogen transportation is liquefaction. Turboexpanders and compressors are critical in efficient LH2 plant designs. Our solutions enable plant operators to achieve lower specific energy consumptions. They can operate in the industry’s most cryogenic working environments.

Hydrogen Usage

Pure hydrogen is essential as a feedstock and fuel in many applications of modern industries. This includes the mobility sector, power generation, chemical/petrochemical, fertilizer and refinery (i.e., ammonia production). All processes handling hydrogen require robust and reliable turbomachinery design and high-quality manufacturing.
