Hydrogen & Renewable energy

The shift to renewable energy from fossil fuels requires new technologies and solutions for energy production, system enablers and infrastructure. Materials often need to be lighter, stronger, and withstand higher temperatures and more corrosive atmospheres.

With our high-integrity grades and products, we can enable the development of new technologies and applications such as hydrogen applications, concentrated solar power, offshore wind, geothermal energy, and bioenergy as well as carbon capture and storage.

Hydrogen solutions

Hydrogen can be used across various applications from mobility to heavy industry, directly as a combustion fuel to generate electricity, or as backup power – thereby helping to decarbonize transportation and industries.

We offer materials, products, and solutions suitable for hydrogen production, distribution, and hydrogen usage like in fuel cells and electrolyzers. While heat exchanger tubing and hollow bars play a key role in hydrogen production, coiled tubing products support its distribution.

For one of the most critical components in the hydrogen fuel cell stack – the bipolar plates – we offer a portfolio of advanced coated strip steel.

Hydrogen refueling stations

In addition, Alleima offers a micro-factory on-site manufacturing solution of high-pressure tubes for hydrogen refueling stations.

The mobile and connected container can be tailored to suit individual customer needs and be flexibly located where required, reducing waste, and increasing safety along with time and cost savings.
