GreenLab Skive is a green and circular industrial park, a technology enabler and a research facility located in Denmark.GreenLab is the green energy park of the future for companies that want to contribute to the green transition. Here,sustainable energy is generated and supplied to the park’s companies in the form that suits them best. The energy is thentransformed into heat, electrofuels, and other green products. In the energy park, everything is connected by theSymbiosisNet – an intelligent network of energy and data that in the future will enable companies to share their surplus energy and resources. GreenLab is leading work packages 5, 8 and 10, which aims to facilitate the work necessary to plan and prepare the physicalsite activities, including the actual plans and necessary approvals. GreenLab also addresses the business plan for the project,including investment and funding and will support the replication of the project model. Besides this, GreenLab will also hostthe coordination and management of GreenHyScale to ensure optimal utilisation of resources and reach the objectivesdefined.
Green Hydrogen Systems
Green Hydrogen Systems is a leading provider of standardised and modular electrolysers for the production of green hydrogen solely based on renewable energy. With its wide range of possible applications, green hydrogen plays a key role in the ongoing fundamental shift in our energy systems towards a net-zero emission society in 2050. Founded in 2007 and building on more than 10 years of technology development, Green Hydrogen Systems today has a commercially proven and cost-competitive electrolysis technology endorsed by leading energy companies.
Green Hydrogen Systems (GHS) will develop, manufacture, install and test our first 6 MW high-efficiency pressurised alkaline water electrolyser module at GreenLab Skive. After testing, minor adjustments, and validation, GHS will deliver a commercial 100 MW electrolyser installation targeting new PtX applications developed with project partners. GHS will develop and test an enhanced version of the 6 MW module targeting off-shore wind-based PtX applications. GHS participates in most work packages.
