News Ceres, AtkinsRéalis to design multi-MW modularised SOEC system




Ceres has joined forces with the design, engineering and project management organisation AtkinsRéalis to deliver the front-end engineering design (FEED) for a commercial multi-megawatt modularised hydrogen production system based on Ceres’s robust, low-cost and highly efficient solid oxide electrolysis (SOEC) technology.


SOEC provides a route to generate green hydrogen over 25% more efficiently than incumbent lower-temperature technology. The collaboration between Ceres and AtkinsRéalis aims to create a blueprint of the optimum system architecture for a 100-MW+ electrolyser system to produce green hydrogen, as a building block for gigawatt-scale plants.


Jon Harman, Technology Delivery Director at Ceres, commented: “As we continue to decarbonise those sectors where emissions are traditionally difficult to avoid, both innovation and relationships are key. Our collaboration with AtkinsRéalis will help find solutions which not only reduce emissions but are also more economical and can be deployed quickly and at scale.”


Gareth Richardson, Technology Lead – Hydrogen and Low Carbon Energy, at AtkinsRéalis, said: “The development of new hydrogen technology is an essential building block towards achieving large scale reductions in industrial emissions. This collaboration has the potential to build on Ceres’ existing technology to develop highly efficient, cost-effective solutions to produce green hydrogen and we look forward to progressing the technology with the team at Ceres.”
