Enapter AG is strategically expanding its product portfolio with the launch of a new AEM electrolyser, the "AEM Flex 120". The primary application areas of the new electrolyser will be industrial projects and hydrogen refuelling projects. The AEM Flex 120 features a total of 50 AEM Stack core modules.
It can produce around 53 kilogrammes of hydrogen per day, corresponding to nominal power of 120 kW, with a purity of 99.999% with optional dryer at an output pressure of 35 bar. The AEM Flex 120 will be officially unveiled in front of partners and system integrators on 21 September in Saerbeck, Germany. The corresponding production capacities have already been set up so that the first AEM Flex 120 can be delivered before the end of the year.
Especially energy-intensive companies that have furnaces and ovens, for example, to produce tiles, ceramics, or glass, are looking for emission-free and highly scalable alternatives to fossil fuels and are already showing great interest in Enapter's flexible solutions. Enapter's integrated and proprietary energy management software also allows energy generation, storage, and transmission to be planned, managed, and controlled automatically and remotely. This ensures the efficient use of available energy resources and a reliable hydrogen or power supply and minimises maintenance.
The first AEM Flex 120 will be delivered to the German brick producer ABC-Klinker in autumn 2023. With it, the company will have a device to produce low-cost, clean gas that can be used to immediately start decarbonising its manufacturing processes. The hydrogen produced with the AEM Flex 120 will be fed into the company's gas mix.
The plan is to gradually increase the share of hydrogen in the gas mix to 100 % and thus become completely CO2-free. Other applications for the AEM Flex 120 include mobility solutions for forklift, car, and bus charging stations, as well as electricity storage for peak load reduction and energy self-sufficiency. With the AEM Flex 120, companies can optimise their energy mix and position themselves even more resiliently against price fluctuations on the gas markets.
