A Nigerian agency, Buserve Limited, has introduced plans to introduce hydrogen-powered turbines into the nation to allow companies to scale back their electrical energy prices.
The Chief Executive Officer, Buserve Limited, Mr Laitan Aderinto, who disclosed this at a press briefing in Lagos, stated the know-how was being deployed in Europe.
He stated, “We are partnering with a German firm. We are beginning with the larger turbines with capability of 500KVA and above. Our plan is to make sure that factories are again to regular; the worth of diesel is killing them.
“If the government is ready, we are ready to work with them. For instance, there are independent power plants in Lagos that are being powered by gas. We can have IPPs powered by water instead of having to look for gas before you can power your generators.”
He defined that water-to-hydrogen gasoline mass manufacturing know-how represented a serious scientific breakthrough of the utmost significance.
According to him, the patented know-how is predicated on a complicated proprietary scientific course of, which incorporates the invention of utilizing thermoplasma to transform water into hydrogen gasoline in excessive quantity for energy technology and at a lot decrease price than some other hydrogen manufacturing know-how.
Aderinto stated, “Furthermore, since H2 manufacturing is finished in actual time in response to precise energy manufacturing necessities, there isn’t any requirement for hydrogen storage, which is likely one of the best challenges in utilizing hydrogen gasoline as a renewable gas supply, to not point out avoiding a storage mannequin can be a lot safer.
“On common, with this know-how, energy is generated at about 10 per cent of the price of diesel and really importantly, no fossil gas part is required to combine with the H2 when utilizing this know-how.
He added, “Water is the enter and fewer than 10 per cent of the gross power manufacturing is required to energy the gear. For every litre of water fed into the retrofit system, the online output exceeds 1m3 of H2 gasoline.
“This is a no-pollution technology designed to shift existing and future industrial power production away from fossil fuels and, therefore, reduce the world’s harmful emissions. Currently, approximately 25 per cent of the world’s harmful emissions is caused by industrial power production.”
