Harvest Energy Technology to Supply Hydrogen Generator to CPC in Taiwan

22 February 2007

Harvest Energy Technology, Inc. (HET) has been awarded a contract to deliver a 100 Nm3/h (8.41 kg/hr) High-Pressure Steam Methane Reformer (HPSMR) hydrogen generator to the Chinese Petroleum Corporation (CPC) of Taiwan.

The hydrogen generator will supply hydrogen for chemical feedstock and hydrogen refueling applications. The project is being managed by Asia Pacific Fuel Cell Technologies, Ltd. (APFCT) to assist in the development of a metal hydride-based hydrogen refueling infrastructure to commercialize fuel cell powered transportation vehicles in Taiwan.

HET’s 35 Nm3/h (2.944 kg/hr) HPSMR was successfully commissioned at the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit, Oakland, CA) hydrogen energy station during the second quarter of 2006. The HPSMR hydrogen generator there supplies hydrogen to refuel three fuel cell buses and up to twelve fuel cell vehicles being operated at the facility.

The hydrogen energy station—designed, constructed and operated by Chevron Hydrogen Company—also includes an HET Low-Pressure Steam Methane Reformer (LPSMR) that was commissioned by Chevron at the AC Transit facility in late 2005. The HET LPSMR has logged more than 7,000 hours during operation at AC Transit and Chevron’s former Montebello Technology Center in Montebello, CA.

Other HET SMR installations include:

  • A LPSMR fuel processor that was integrated into a hydrogen generator commissioned by Air Products in early 2006 at Penn State University.

  • A LPSMR to Scandiuzzi Advanced Technologies for integration into a hydrogen generator that was commissioned at an industrial site during the summer of 2006.

  • A HPSMR fuel processor to Hydrogenics Corporation for integration into a hydrogen refueling station that was commissioned at the Korean Gas Technology Corporation (KOGAS) research and development facility in Incheon in late 2006.

HET supplies distributed hydrogen generator technology for small industrial and hydrogen refueling applications. HET is developing hydrogen generators in the size range of 35-250 Nm3/h.
