Saipem: launches Suiso, a solution for green hydrogen production
Saipem launches Suiso, a technological solution for the production of green hydrogen that confirms the company’s commitment to support its customers in the energy transition. The trademark, explains a note, has been filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (Euipo). Suiso integrates in the same system different renewable energy sources such as floating wind, floating solar and marine energy with the aim of powering, together or individually, electrolysers for the production of green hydrogen installed on already existing offshore platforms. . The technology responds to the growing demand for the production of green hydrogen and at the same time allows the conversion of marine infrastructures in the oil & gas sector which have now reached the end of their life cycle. The oxygen that comes from this process can be used in various fields such as aquaculture or the production of algae. Due to these characteristics, suiso will find its first application in the Agnes project, the offshore energy hub that Saipem, in partnership with Qint’x, intends to build off the Adriatic coast of Ravenna.
“The Suiso brand – explains Francesco Caio, Saipem CEO – is an example of Saipem’s ability to offer innovative and sustainable solutions to accompany its customers in the energy transition. The solution is adaptable to multiple types of marine sites and to different production needs. The know-how gained in the design and construction of technologically advanced infrastructures and plants allows Saipem to cover the value chain linked to the production of green hydrogen and to be a strategic partner in the path towards the net zero economy “
