Siemens Energy joined the Power-to-Fuel developer to produce eFuel and enable a reduction in carbon emissions from shipping.
Liquid Wind’s facilities will integrate a 70-Megawatt PEM-Electrolyzer by Siemens Energy, which will use renewable electricity to split water into green hydrogen and oxygen.
The green hydrogen will be combined with biogenic CO2 to form carbon neutral liquid fuel. This eFuel will be used by the shipping industry to replace fossil fuels, preventing the emission of 100,000 tons of CO₂ every year.
eMethanol will be one of the drivers in the future of transportation and Siemens Energy want to be an active part of this
stated Engelbert Schrapp, Principle Corporate Account Manager of Siemens Energy.
With a construction time of approximately two years, the eMethanol is expected to be available from early 2024. The company is targeting the development of up to 500 standardised facilities internationally by 2050.
