Brief pro­file

As a sub­sidiary of the French util­i­ty Élec­tric­ité de France (EDF), Hynam­ics Deutsch­land GmbH brings the exper­tise of the entire EDF Group to the Westküste100 con­sor­tium. The com­pa­ny devel­ops green hydro­gen solu­tions for indus­tri­al and mobil­i­ty cus­tomers in Ger­many and pro­vides green hydro­gen solu­tions from project devel­op­ment, design, invest­ment, con­struc­tion to oper­a­tion of the water elec­trol­y­sis plants.

For more than 25 years, the EDF Group is tak­ing part to the ener­gy tran­si­tion in Ger­many, as a devel­op­er of renew­able ener­gies with about 800 MW of wind and hydro pow­er plants under man­age­ment, as well as the devel­op­ment of inno­v­a­tive busi­ness­es in Ger­many. The EDF Group is an inte­grat­ed elec­tric­i­ty com­pa­ny, active in all areas of the busi­ness: gen­er­a­tion, trans­mis­sion, dis­tri­b­u­tion, ener­gy sup­ply and trad­ing, ener­gy ser­vices. A glob­al leader in low-car­bon ener­gies, the Group has devel­oped a diver­si­fied gen­er­a­tion mix based on nuclear pow­er, hydropow­er, new renew­able ener­gies and ther­mal ener­gy. The Group is involved in sup­ply­ing ener­gy and ser­vices to approx­i­mate­ly 38.9 mil­lion cus­tomers (1), 28.8 mil­lion of which are in France. It gen­er­at­ed con­sol­i­dat­ed sales of €69 bil­lion in 2020. EDF is list­ed on the Paris Stock Exchange.

Accord­ing to the Nation­al Hydro­gen Strat­e­gy, renew­able hydro­gen plays a key role in achiev­ing cli­mate objec­tives and offers a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty for Ger­many to posi­tion itself as a world leader in hydro­gen tech­nolo­gies. The EDF Group found­ed Hynam­ics Deutsch­land GmbH in August 2020, rein­forc­ing its com­mit­ment to fight cli­mate change and to pro­vide decar­bon­i­sa­tion solu­tions to its cus­tomers in Ger­many. Hynam­ics Deutsch­land builds on the 20-year long expe­ri­ence in elec­trol­y­sis and fuel cell tech­nolo­gies of the EDF Group hydro­gen com­pe­tence cen­tre (EIfER) locat­ed in Karl­sruhe. The com­pa­ny also embarks very strong knowl­edge and exe­cu­tion skills on indus­try process­es and ener­gy systems.

Hynam­ics is accom­pa­ny­ing its cus­tomers all along their project life­time, from project devel­op­ment to oper­a­tion and main­te­nance, through the design, engi­neer­ing, financ­ing, pro­cure­ment and con­struc­tion of the plant. Based on water elec­trol­y­sis pow­ered by renew­able elec­tric­i­ty, Hynam­ics Deutsch­land port­fo­lio of solu­tions pro­vides answers to decar­bon­i­sa­tion chal­lenges across the indus­try and heavy-duty trans­port sectors.

Role with­in the real-world lab­o­ra­to­ry project

The Hynam­ics pro­vides its exper­tise in mul­ti-modal sys­tems to the project. It will define the inter­faces with­in the project with the aim of achiev­ing suc­cess­ful over­all sys­tem inte­gra­tion. The work will involve study­ing the tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions of the indi­vid­ual sys­tems and their con­trol tech­nol­o­gy as a means to char­ac­terise the inter­faces. The aim is to iden­ti­fy the require­ments that will result in suc­cess­ful and opti­mum con­trol of the sys­tems as well as cost-effec­tive oper­a­tion. The con­cept for an elec­trol­y­sis plant capa­ble of deliv­er­ing up to 700 MW of pow­er that is being devel­oped in Hei­de is being researched in the Westküste100 real-world lab­o­ra­to­ry project. As part of this work, Hynam­ics will inves­ti­gate the nec­es­sary inter­im stages and mod­el grid-com­pat­i­ble oper­a­tion of the system.

Long-term vision

The con­cepts and mod­els pro­duced by the research are to be used to work on a pos­si­ble expan­sion of the 30 MW plant in Hei­de and to build fur­ther large-scale facil­i­ties in Ger­many. Hynam­ics there­fore sees itself as a future grid-com­pat­i­ble oper­a­tor of small and large-scale hydro­gen pro­duc­tion plants, with the ulti­mate goal of help­ing to decar­bonise indus­try and mobil­i­ty with green hydrogen.
