UK – The tpgroup has recently announced that it has secured a contract worth approximately 1.31 million dollars (1.0 million pounds) with a leading UK engineering company to provide management control equipment for enhanced safety management of hydrogen gas. Under this contract, the company will qualify the design concepts, build and test a prototype system to manage hydrogen during emergency shutdown procedures more safely and reliably than existing methods.

Environments where explosive gas is present are classified into zones according to risk and are closely controlled. This innovative design uses combines tpgroup‘s technologies with techniques that have been proven in other applications, which will be modified to perform in enclosed or containerised situations. The key objective is to respond quickly to a shutdown event, process the hydrogen and allow it to be vented safely in the controlled zone. The project will start immediately at the tpgroup facility in Portsmouth and is expected to be completed in mid-2021.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

Phil Cartmell, Chief Executive Officer of tpgroup, commented: “We are very pleased to continue our work on mission-critical gas management systems with this existing key customer. These innovations build upon decades of experience producing highly reliable electrolyser-based solutions for demanding operational use, giving us the confidence that our solutions are well positioned for many years of future service. This contract is also highly complementary to other projects currently in development which leverage our expertise in innovative oxygen and hydrogen generation and management systems.”

He further adds, “The new approaches developed through this work apply in a wide range of critical applications where safe evacuation of hydrogen is needed. This opens up a range of potential uses in life support and renewable energy applications that the Group is actively pursuing.”
